How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such kind of viruses in the future, you have to know for sure how got onto the PC. Adware use a lot of ways, but we'll assort them on three main groups:

  • Infection through a viral website. There are web-pages that distribute the viruses and aren't even hiding it. The features of these software are common, they are: the enhancement of Web browsing, search for most profitable offers on the Net, search for the newest toll-free content such as movies, music and games, the performance of specific tasks in Facebook, acting installation of each driver or update for your gear. All of these options are already integrated into the browsers, or present in the list of Windows services, so, it means that such software are completely needless, and the web-page that propagates them is, very likely, infected.
  • Malware might be attached to good tools. If you often use the toll-free tools, you know what that means. You download the program, and during the installation there is a window with the proposal to get the browser, the additional toolbar for it, antivirus, super-useful media player, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and if you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll get 4-5 trashy programs, except the needed one.
  • The straight download by user. Clever composed specification of the software and its magnificent (and nonexistent) features deludes the customer, and he downloads adware.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread malware but it is rarely used by hijackers. We hope that by the time you're reading these words, will be completely deleted from the PC. If you choose the hand deletion, you need to know how to understand that there is malware on your machine.

  • The system boots really slowly. The programs that run at startup are, very often, the reason of slow boot. Inspect the taskbar, and remove the undesired tools from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of advertising in on every site. If the amount of hype increased notably - that is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • The reputable software became slowly and unstable, computer restarts and turns off by itself.
  • You notice lots of software which you've never seen before. If the program shows up on your computer without your consent - it is, most likely, unwanted.

Each of these red flags informs about the malware threat, and if you react in time - you will avoid the harm. Don't trust in everything you see on the Net, track the state of your machine, and it will be ready for anything.
