How to protect the computer?

There is one simple thing that you should know about PC virus: how not to let it sneak in your system. Hijackers use plenty of ways, but we'll assort them on three main groups:

  • Infection through an untrusted web-site. When you're on a website, you see a pop-up window with an offer to download some software, which would greatly help you in something. Suchlike tools have the bounded list of features: the improvement of Internet browsing, giving the information about best deals on the Internet, providing the latest unpaid content such as games, music and movies, self installation of every update or driver for your devices, the implementation of definite tasks in Twitter. If on some web-page you receive an offer to install the software with these functions - it is absolutely harmful, and the website itself is untrusted.
  • Viruses may be attached to other tools. Practically every free software suggests you to install something except the tool that you wish. You install the tool, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the suggestion to get the brilliant file manager, anti-virus, browser, the new add-on for it, and, maybe, some different unknown, but extremely "efficient" tools. The installation is already confirmed, and once you press "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll get 4-5 tools that you do not need, besides the needed one.
  • The straight download by user. It is very possible, because when the people see a tempting specification of the tool, they decide that it is really useful.

The e-mails are also often used, to spread malware but the adware almost don't use it. We suppose that when you're reading these words, will be fully eliminated from your laptop. If you choose the uninstall in manual mode, you must know how to understand that there is malware on your machine.

  • Slow boot of Operating System. The tools that turn on at startup are, most often, the cause of long boot. Look at the taskbar, and search for harmful software.
  • Appearance of ads in on every page. If the amount of advertisement has grown up noticeably - this is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The reliable programs became slowly and unstable, computer reboots and turns off by itself.
  • You see many programs which you've never seen before. If the tool appears on the PC without your permission - it is, nothing else than the adware.

Each of these red flags shows the malware threat, and the early reaction is a chance to avoid the damage. Don't believe in everything you see on the Internet, watch for the symptoms of infection on the PC, and it will be ready for anything.
