How to protect the computer?

To prevent these problems, you have to know for sure in which way got on the computer. This occurs via three main manners:

  • Infection through a suspicious site. There are websites that spread the undesired software and they don't even try to hide it. The functions of suchlike programs are ordinary, they are: the performance of specific tasks in Facebook, search for the newest toll-free content such as movies, music and games, search for most profitable offers on the Net, the enhancement of Web browsing, acting installation of each driver or update for your gear. If on any website you find a suggestion to install the tool with such functions - it is absolutely dangerous, and the web-site itself is unreliable.
  • Viruses may be attached to free software. Practically every toll-free tool allows you to install something except the tool that you need. You download the software, and then you see the window with the proposal to get the anti-viral program, browser, the new extension for it, miraculous media player, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and if you press "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll get 2-3 useless programs, instead of one that you would like to have.
  • The straight installation by user. It is highly possible, because when some people read an alluring specification of software, they think that it is really useful.

The penetration via viral e-mail attachment is also extremely popular, but this technique is used mostly by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. If you came to these words, we believe, that adware is already gone. The well AV-tools understand to recognize malware, but if you prefer the by-hand disposal - you should know all symptoms of infection.

  • Operating System boots really slowly. The tools that launch at startup are, most often, the cause of slow boot. Check the taskbar, and search for undesired programs.
  • Appearance of advertisement in all tabs. If the amount of advertising increased dramatically - this is, most likely, virus.
  • Critical failures when using software, restart or shutdown of a machine without your permission.
  • The emergence of the strange programs on your computer. If the software emerges on the machine without your consent - it's, nothing else than the virus.

If you find one of the mentioned above symptoms on your computer - you should perform an overall scan through anti-virus, or manually get rid of all the undesired and malicious software from your PC. Be careful on the Net, watch for the symptoms of virus on the machine, and it will be ready for anything.
