How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you should know about PC virus: how not to let it sneak into the PC. Hijackers use plenty of ways, but they all can be separated on three main groups:

  • Download from a suspicious web-page. There are web-pages, which disseminate the hijackers and aren't even hiding it. The functions of these tools are ordinary, they are: automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, search for the latest unpaid media-content such as music, games and movies, providing the info about beneficial deals on the Web, the realization of certain actions in the social networks, the enhancement of Internet surfing. If on the web-page you see an offer to install the software with similar features - it is very harmful, and the site itself is suspicious.
  • Download in bundles with good programs. Practically each free program suggests you to get something except the tool that you want. You install the program, and then you see the window with the proposal to install the miraculous media player, browser, the new add-on for it, anti-virus, and God knows what else. There's no need to make a decision because the installation has already been confirmed, and in most cases, it will be very hard to abort the installation of useless software.
  • Sometimes user installs hijackers voluntarily. It is also possible, because when the customers see a tempting specification of software, they think that it is highly useful.

The penetration via e-mail is also extremely popular, but this way is used mostly by malware and ransomware, and not by advertisement software. We believe that by the time you're reading this part of the article, will be already eliminated from the machine. The dependable anti-viruses know how to locate malware, but if you prefer the removal in manual mode - you need to know all symptoms of infection.

  • The system boots extremely slowly. The programs that run at startup are, very often, the cause of long boot. At the taskbar you will see all currently working programs, and choose which are helpful and which aren't.
  • Appearance of ads in the browser. If the quantity of advertising has grown up dramatically - that is, most likely, virus.
  • The dependable software functions unstable and slow, machine reboots and shuts down by itself.
  • You notice a lot of programs that you haven't installed. If the software shows up in your system without your consent - it's, nothing else than the adware.

If you see one of the mentioned above symptoms on your computer - you have to make a total scan through anti-viral software, or manually remove all the undesired and harmful tools from your PC. Be cautious on the Net, follow the status of your computer, and it will always be fast and functional.
