How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such type of hijackers, you should know precisely in which way got onto the machine. Viruses use plenty of ways, but they all can be separated on three main groups:

  • Download from a malicious site. When you are on a website, you see a banner with a suggestion to download certain tools, which may seriously support you in something. The promises of these software are usual, they are: 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, search for advantageous discounts on the Web, automated download of all updates and drivers for your hardware. All of these options are already integrated into the browsers, or is in the OS tools list, so, it means that such programs are absolutely needless, and the site, which distributes them is, probably, harmful.
  • Download in bundles with helpful software. If you have ever used the free programs, you are familiar with this. You download the program, and in one of the windows you see the proposal to get the removal software, brilliant media player, browser, the new extension for it, and, maybe, few another strange, but highly "effective" tools. You do not even need to decide anything because the installation has already been verified, and in most cases, it will be very hard to cancel the installation of suspicious software.
  • In some cases user installs hijackers voluntarily. It is also possible, because when some people see an alluring description of software, they believe that it is really efficient.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread unwanted programs but the adware almost don't use it. We believe that if you're reading this part of the guide, will be fully deleted from your laptop. If you choose the hand disposal, you should know how to determine that your system has a virus.

  • Slow loading of Operating System. The processes that run at startup are, in most cases, the cause of slow boot. Inspect the taskbar, and search for undesired programs.
  • Appearance of advertisement in all tabs. If the amount of ads has grown up dramatically - it is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The reputable programs runs unstable and slow, PC restarts and turns off by itself.
  • The appearance of the strange tools on the computer. If the program shows up in your system without your permit - it is, nothing else than the virus.

If you find one of these red flags in your system - you need to make an overall scan with assistance of anti-viral software, or manually uninstall all the undesired and harmful tools from your computer. Don't believe in everything you see on the Internet, look for the symptoms of infection on your machine, and it will be ready for anything.
