How to protect the computer?

There is one simple thing that you need to understand about computer virus: how not to let it get inside your system. Malware use plenty of ways, but we'll assort them on three main groups:

  • Download from a suspicious site. Some web-pages distribute the hijackers and they don't even try to hide it. Such tools have the bounded list of features: self installation of every update or driver for your devices, giving the information about best deals on the Internet, providing the latest unpaid content such as games, music and movies, the implementation of definite tasks in Twitter, the improvement of Internet browsing. If on the web-site you find a suggestion to install the program with similar functions - it is very harmful, and the web-page itself is untrusted.
  • Download in the package with helpful software. Literally every free tool allows you to get something aside from the tool that you wish. You download the software, and during the installation there is a window with the confirmation on the installation of the brilliant media player, browser, the additional toolbar for it, special tool, and God knows what else. You do not even need to decide anything because the all boxes are already filled, and in most cases, it will be really complicated to decline the installation of suspicious programs.
  • Sometimes user installs malicious software by his own will. It is also possible, because when the people see a colorful description of software, they decide that it is really useful.

The infection via viral e-mail attachment is also highly efficient, but this technique is used mostly by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. If you read this part, we think, that hijacker is already uninstalled. If you prefer the deletion in manual mode, you should know how to determine that there is a virus on your computer.

  • The system boots extremely slowly. The programs that turn on at startup are, most often, the cause of tardy boot. At the taskbar you will see all currently launched programs, and choose which are good and which are not.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the quantity of ads increased notably - it is, most likely, the unwanted software.
  • Critical errors when using programs, shutdown or reboot of a laptop without the user's permission.
  • You see lots of software which you've never seen before. If the program shows up on your computer without your permit - it's, nothing else than the adware.

If you notice one of these red flags in your system - you have to make a full scan through AV-software, or manually uninstall all the undesired and malicious tools from your PC. Be cautious on the Internet, watch for the symptoms of malware on your machine, and it will anytime be clean and effective.
