How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such adware, you should know for sure how PopAds.net got into your system. Hijackers use lots of ways, but they all can be divided on three main groups:

  • Infection through an untrusted web-site. When you're on a web-site, you are shown a confirmation to install special software, which can greatly support you in some things. Such tools have the bounded list of functions: search for most profitable offers on the Net, the enhancement of Web browsing, acting installation of each driver or update for your gear, the performance of specific tasks in Facebook, search for the newest toll-free content such as movies, music and games. If on some site you receive a suggestion to install the tool with these functions - it is very dangerous, and the web-site itself is unsafe.
  • Adware can be attached to free software. If you have ever downloaded the free software, you are familiar with this. You install the tool, and then you see the window with the proposal of the installation of the removal program, brilliant file manager, browser, the new toolbar for it, and, maybe, some another strange, but extremely "efficient" tools. The installation is already confirmed, and once you click "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll get 3-4 useless tools, instead of one that you want to use.
  • In some cases user downloads adware voluntarily. It is highly possible, because when the customers see a colorful description of software, they believe that it is really effective.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute viruses but the advertising programs almost don't use it. We suppose that by the time you're reading this part of the article, PopAds.net will be totally uninstalled from the machine. The reputable antiviruses understand to recognize a virus, but if you prefer the uninstall in manual manner - you need to know all red flags of virus.

  • The system boots really slowly. The tools that run at startup are, in most cases, the reason of long boot. Look at the taskbar, and search for unwanted programs.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the amount of advertisement has grown up noticeably - this is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical failures when using programs, restart or shutdown of a PC without your resolution.
  • You see many installed tools which you've never seen before. If the software appears in the system without your permit - it is, nothing else than the malware.

If you find one of the described above symptoms in your system - you have to make a total scan with assistance of anti-virus, or manually uninstall all the useless and harmful software from your machine. Be watchful on the Internet, watch for the symptoms of virus on your machine, and it will always be clean and effective.
