Advantages of different removal methods


How to protect the computer?

To prevent such problems in the future, you should know for sure in which way got on the laptop. This might occur via three main manners:

  • Download from a dangerous web-site. When you are on a web-page, you are shown a banner with an invitation to download brilliant programs, which may seriously support you in something. Such programs have the limited list of functions: the improvement of Internet browsing, providing the latest unpaid content such as games, music and movies, giving the information about best deals on the Internet, the implementation of definite tasks in Twitter, self installation of every update or driver for your devices. Any such option is already built into the browsers, or is in the Windows tools list, which means - these tools are simply worthless, and the website that spreads them is, very likely, infected.
  • Download in bundles with good programs. Almost every toll-free tool proposes you to install something besides the needed tool. You download the tool, and then you see the window with the suggestion to get the anti-virus, brilliant media player, browser, the new add-on for it, and, maybe, few different strange, but highly "efficient" tools. The checkboxes are already filled, and if you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll get 3-4 programs that you do not need, besides the one that you wish to install.
  • The straight download by user. Carefully composed description of the program and its marvelous (and nonexistent) features misinforms the customer, and he downloads malware.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute viruses but the adware almost don't use it. We hope that if you're reading this part of the guide, will be already removed from the computer. The dependable anti-viruses know how to detect a virus, but if you prefer the removal in manual manner - you have to know all signs of infection.

  • Slow loading of Operating System. Most of the malware, during the installation, tune themselves to turn on at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. Inspect the taskbar, and search for unwanted tools.
  • Banners are everywhere. If the amount of hype has grown up notably - this is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical faults when using software, reboot or shutdown of a workstation without your consent.
  • You see a lot of installed tools that you've never seen before. If the software appears on the computer without your resolution - it is, nothing else than the virus.

Any of these red flags informs about the malware threat, and if you react in time - you will prevent the damage. Don't believe in everything you see on the Internet, look for the symptoms of infection on your machine, and it will always be fast and effective.
