Advantages of different removal methods


How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such program in the future, you should understand closely in which way got on your machine. This can occur via three basic manners:

  • Infection through a suspicious web-page. Some websites distribute the viruses and aren't even hiding it. The promises of these programs are ordinary, they are: automated download of all updates and drivers for your hardware, showing the newest free media-content such as music, movies and games, the acceleration of Net surfing, search for advantageous discounts on the Web, the realization of some actions in the social networks. If on any web-site you see a suggestion to install the software with such functions - it is completely harmful, and the website itself is unreliable.
  • Download in bundles with reliable tools. If you often use the unpaid software, you know what we are talking about. You install the software, and in one of the windows you see the suggestion to get the anti-viral tool, browser, the new toolbar for it, super-useful media player, and God knows what else. The installation is already confirmed, and as soon as you press "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll install few programs that you do not need, except the one that you want to install.
  • The direct download by user. Carefully composed description of the software and its brilliant (and nonexistent) advantages misleads the customer, and he downloads the program.

The infection via e-mail is also highly popular, but this manner is used mostly by ransomware and viruses, and not by advertisement software. We hope that if you're reading this paragraph of the article, will be already uninstalled from the system. The reputable antiviruses know how to recognize a virus, but if you prefer the by-hand deletion - you need to know all red flags of infection.

  • The system boots very slowly. The majority of malicious programs, during the installation, tune themselves to run at startup, and it doesn't matter if this program is used once in 6 months - it will launch daily and take your time and CPU resources. On the taskbar you will see all currently working programs, and choose which are useful and which are not.
  • Appearance of advertisement in all tabs. If the amount of ads has grown up dramatically - that is, most likely, the undesired software.
  • Critical faults when using programs, shutdown or reboot of a PC without the user's permission.
  • You see lots of software that you've never seen before. If the tool appears on the computer without your permit - it's, nothing else than the malware.

Every of these symptoms indicates the malware threat, and if you react in time - you will avoid the harm. Don't trust in everything you see on the Web, watch at the state of your machine, and it will anytime be fast and efficient.
