How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such program, you have to understand closely how got onto your PC. Hijackers use lots of ways, but they all can be divided on three basic groups:

  • Download from an untrusted site. Some web-sites disseminate the malware without any precautions. Suchlike programs have the bounded list of features: 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, the improvement of Internet browsing. All of these functions are already built into the browsers, or is in the OS tools list, so, it means that these software are just useless, and the site, which disseminates them is, apparently, infected.
  • Download in the package with free software. Practically each unpaid software suggests you to install something aside from the tool that you want. You install the software, and then you see the window with the proposal of the installation of the brilliant media player, anti-virus, browser, the new add-on for it, and, maybe, some different weird, but extremely "useful" tools. The installation is already verified, and as soon as you click "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll install few useless tools, instead of one that you want to get.
  • The straight download by user. Clever written description of the software and its magnificent (and nonexistent) functions misguides the customer, and he sets up the hijacker.

The penetration via e-mail is also highly effective, but this technique is used most of the times by ransomware and viruses, and not by advertisement software. We suppose that by the time you're reading these words, will be completely uninstalled from your machine. If you choose the by-hand uninstall, you have to know how to realize that there is malware on your machine.

  • Operating System boots really slowly. The tools that turn on at startup are, most often, the cause of tardy boot. Check the taskbar, and delete the useless tools from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of ads in the browser. If the quantity of hype increased notably - it is, most likely, the unwanted software.
  • The reliable tools became unstable and slow, PC restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • The appearance of the strange tools on your PC. If the tool appears in the system without your resolution - it is, nothing else than the malware.

Each of these red flags shows the malware threat, and the timely reaction is a way to avoid the damage. Be watchful on the Net, look at the condition of your PC, and it will be ready for anything.
