How to recognize the adware infection?

The infection via e-mail is also extremely effective, but this method is used mostly by malware and ransomware, and not by advertisement software. If you came to these words, we think, that adware is already removed. The reputable anti-viral programs know how to recognize malware, but if you prefer the disposal in manual mode - you should know all symptoms of infection.

  • Slow loading of Windows. The majority of adware, during the installation, tune themselves to run at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. Check the taskbar, and search for useless software.
  • Ads are everywhere. If the amount of advertisement increased dramatically - that is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical faults when using software, reboot or shutdown of a laptop without your permission.
  • The appearance of the strange software in your system. If the software shows up on your computer without your consent - it's, most likely, dangerous.

Any of these red flags indicates the malware threat, and the timely reaction is a way to avoid the harm. Be watchful on the Internet, watch at the condition of your PC, and it will be ready for any job.

How to protect the computer?

There is one simple thing that you should understand about PC virus: how not to let it enter the system. This happens via three basic ways:

  • Infection through a malicious web-page. Some websites disseminate the malware without any precautions. Suchlike tools have the confined list of features: automated download of all updates and drivers for your hardware, search for advantageous discounts on the Web, the realization of some actions in the social networks, showing the newest free media-content such as music, movies and games, the acceleration of Net surfing. Any such option is already integrated into the browsers, or present in the list of Windows services, which means - such software are just useless, and the web-page, which spreads them is, probably, dangerous.
  • Download in bundles with helpful programs. If you have ever used the free software, you understand what we are talking about. You install the tool, and during the installation there is a window with the confirmation on the installation of the special software, brilliant file manager, browser, the new toolbar for it, and, maybe, few another unknown, but extremely "effective" tools. There's no need to decide anything because the installation has already been verified, and in most cases, it is very hard to cancel the installation of useless programs.
  • The direct download by user. It is also possible, because when the customers read a tempting description of the tool, they think that it is really effective.
