How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such kind of hijackers, you should know for sure how Seekit.com got on your computer. Adware use lots of ways, but we'll assort them on three main groups:

  • Download from an untrusted website. When you open a website, you see a banner with an invitation to install some software that would seriously assist you in some cases. The features of such software are usual, they are: the enhancement of Web browsing, acting installation of each driver or update for your gear, 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. Every such function is already integrated into the browsers, or present in the operating system tools list, which means - such software are absolutely worthless, and the site, which distributes them is, apparently, infected.
  • Adware might be bundled with reliable software. If you often use the free programs, you are familiar with this. You install the program, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the suggestion to get the super-useful media player, antivirus, browser, the additional toolbar for it, and God knows what else. The installation is already verified, and once you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll install 2-3 tools that you do not need, except the needed one.
  • In some cases user installs hijackers by his own will. It is highly possible, because when the people read a tempting specification of software, they believe that it is really efficient.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread harmful programs but it is rarely used by advertising programs. We hope that if you're reading these words, Seekit.com will be already uninstalled from the laptop. The dependable anti-viral programs know how to locate a virus, but if you prefer the removal in manual manner - you need to know all signs of virus.

  • The system boots really slowly. Most of the viruses, during the installation, tune themselves to launch at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. On the taskbar you will see all currently launched programs, and choose which are good and which aren't.
  • Appearance of advertising in the browser. If the amount of advertising increased noticeably - this is, most likely, virus.
  • Critical errors when using software, reboot or shutdown of a computer without your permit.
  • The emergence of the unknown tools in your system. If the tool emerges in the system without your consent - it is, most likely, malicious.

If you see one of these red flags in your system - you need to make a total scan through antivirus, or manually remove all the useless and malicious tools from your machine. Be watchful on the Internet, track the state of your PC, and it will always be fast and efficient.
