How to protect the computer?

To prevent suchlike issues in the future, you must know for sure how Ads.ad-center.com got into your laptop. Viruses use plenty of ways, but we'll divide them on three basic groups:

  • Infection through a suspicious web-site. There are web-sites that disseminate the viruses and they don't even try to hide it. The advantages of such programs are usual, they are: search for advantageous discounts on the Web, the realization of some actions in the social networks, the acceleration of Net surfing, automated download of all updates and drivers for your hardware, showing the newest free media-content such as music, movies and games. If on some site you receive a suggestion to download the software with these functions - it is absolutely harmful, and the web-site itself is suspicious.
  • Download in the package with worthy programs. Literally each free tool allows you to get something except the tool that you need. You download the tool, and in one of the windows you see the suggestion to get the marvelous file manager, browser, the new extension for it, anti-virus, and, maybe, a pair of different weird, but very "useful" tools. There's no need to make a decision because the all fields are already checked, and in some cases, it is really difficult to abort the installation of suspicious software.
  • The straight download by user. Smart written specification of the tool and its marvelous (and nonexistent) functions misinforms the user, and he installs the virus.

The e-mails are also often used, to spread harmful programs but the adware almost don't use it. If you see these words, we believe, that adware is gone for good. The dependable antiviruses understand to locate malware, but if you prefer the by-hand uninstall - you must know all signs of infection.

  • Slow boot of Operating System. The tools that run at startup are, most often, the cause of slow boot. At the taskbar you can see all currently launched programs, and choose the ones that are useful and which are not.
  • Appearance of advertising in all tabs. If the quantity of advertising has grown up dramatically - it is, most likely, the unwanted software.
  • Critical faults while using programs, shutdown or restart of a computer without the user's permit.
  • You notice lots of software which you've never seen before. If the program appears in your system without your permission - it is, most likely, harmful.

If you see one of the mentioned above red flags on your PC - you should make a total scan with use of anti-viral program, or manually uninstall all the useless and malicious software from your machine. Be watchful on the Net, look for the symptoms of infection on the PC, and it will always be fast and functional.
