How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you have to understand about any malware: how not to let it enter the PC. This might happen via three basic methods:

  • Infection through an untrusted web-page. When you open a web-page, you see a confirmation to download miraculous software that might seriously help you in something. The functions of such software are usual, they are: the implementation of definite tasks in Twitter, providing the latest unpaid content such as games, music and movies, giving the information about best deals on the Internet, the improvement of Internet browsing, self installation of every update or driver for your devices. Each such feature is already built into the browsers, or present in the Windows tools list, so, it means that such tools are simply futile, and the website that disseminates them is, apparently, harmful.
  • Download in the package with other software. If you often use the toll-free software, you understand what we are talking about. You install the software, and then you see the window with the proposal of the installation of the browser, the additional toolbar for it, antivirus, super-useful media player, and God knows what else. The installation is already verified, and once you click "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll install 4-5 useless tools, except the one that you would like to have.
  • The direct download by user. It is very possible, because when some people see a tempting specification of the tool, they decide that it is very efficient.

The penetration via viral e-mail attachment is also highly effective, but this technique is used most of the cases by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. If you see these words, we believe, that adware is gone for good. The well antiviruses understand to recognize a virus, but if you prefer the hand removal - you have to know all signs of infection.

  • Slow loading of Windows. The processes that run at startup are, most often, the cause of tardy boot. Check the taskbar, and search for suspicious tools.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the numbers of advertising increased noticeably - it is, most likely, virus.
  • Critical errors when using tools, shutdown or restart of a machine without the user's resolution.
  • The emergence of the suspicious software on your PC. If the program emerges in the system without your permission - it is, nothing else than the adware.

If you find one of these red flags on your computer - you should do a total scan through removal software, or manually remove all the useless and dangerous tools from your PC. Don't believe in everything you see on the Net, look for the symptoms of malware on your computer, and it will be ready for any task.
