How to protect the computer?

To prevent these problems, you must know for sure how got on the machine. Malware use plenty of ways, but they all can be divided on three main groups:

  • Download from a dangerous web-site. When you are on a web-page, you are shown a confirmation to install few programs that might greatly help you in some things. Suchlike programs have the confined list of functions: the implementation of definite tasks in Twitter, giving the information about best deals on the Internet, the improvement of Internet browsing, providing the latest unpaid content such as games, music and movies, self installation of every update or driver for your devices. Each such feature is already integrated into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, which means - such tools are simply futile, and the web-page that disseminates them is, apparently, unsafe.
  • Harmful programs may be attached to reliable programs. Literally every free program allows you to install something besides the needed tool. You install the software, and in one of the windows you see the proposal to install the marvelous file manager, browser, the new extension for it, AV-program, and God knows what else. There's no need to decide anything because the installation has already been confirmed, and in most cases, it is really difficult to abort the installation of undesired software.
  • The straight installation by user. It is also possible, because when the people see a tempting description of software, they believe that it is really effective.

The infection via e-mail is also extremely effective, but this manner is used most of the times by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. If you read these words, we suppose, that adware is gone for good. The known anti-viruses understand to detect a virus, but if you prefer the manual deletion - you must know all symptoms of infection.

  • Slow boot of Windows. The programs that run at startup are, most often, the reason of long boot. Check the taskbar, and uninstall the undesired tools from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of advertisement in on every website. If the amount of ads increased notably - it is, most likely, the undesired software.
  • Critical failures when using tools, shutdown or restart of a PC without your permission.
  • The emergence of the bizarre software on the PC. If the software shows up on your PC without your resolution - it's, nothing else than the malware.

If you see one of these red flags in your system - you should perform a full scan through anti-virus, or manually get rid of all the undesired and harmful software from your machine. Don't believe in everything you see on the Internet, follow the state of your machine, and it will anytime be fast and efficient.
