How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you need to know about PC virus: how not to let it enter the PC. This occurs via three basic ways:

  • Infection through a suspicious web-site. There are web-pages, which spread the undesired programs and aren't even hiding it. Suchlike tools have the confined list of features: search for most profitable offers on the Net, the performance of specific tasks in Facebook, acting installation of each driver or update for your gear, search for the newest toll-free content such as movies, music and games, the enhancement of Web browsing. If on any site you find an offer to install the tool with such functions - it is very malicious, and the web-page itself is unreliable.
  • Download in bundles with other tools. Nearly every free program suggests you to get something besides the needed tool. You download the tool, and then you see the window with the confirmation on the installation of the browser, the additional toolbar for it, super-useful media player, antivirus, and, maybe, some different weird, but highly "efficient" tools. You do not even need to decide anything because the all boxes are already checked, and in some cases, it will be very difficult to abort the installation of useless software.
  • The straight installation by user. Carefully composed description of the program and its wonderful (and nonexistent) advantages misinforms the user, and he sets up adware.

The penetration via viral e-mail attachment is also extremely popular, but this technique is used most of the times by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. If you see these words, we believe, that adware is gone for good. If you prefer the uninstall in manual manner, you have to know how to realize that there is malware on your computer.

  • Slow boot of Operating System. The processes that turn on at startup are, very often, the cause of slow boot. Look at the taskbar, and search for useless tools.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the quantity of advertisement has grown up dramatically - that is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • The reputable programs became unstable and slow, computer reboots and shuts down by itself.
  • You notice many programs that you haven't installed. If the program shows up on the computer without your permission - it's, nothing else than the virus.

Every of these red flags 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, look for the symptoms of malware on your computer, and it will be ready for any task.
