How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you need to understand about computer virus: how not to let it get in the system. Adware use lots of ways, but they all can be divided on three basic groups:

  • Download from an untrusted website. Some websites distribute the harmful software and they don't even try to hide it. The promises of these programs are common, they are: the enhancement of Internet surfing, 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. Any such option is already built into the browsers, or present in the Windows tools list, so, it means that such tools are completely needless, and the site, which distributes them is, apparently, infected.
  • Download in bundles with worthy software. Literally every unpaid program allows you to get something aside from the needed tool. You install the program, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the suggestion to get the AV-program, browser, the additional toolbar for it, brilliant file manager, and, maybe, few another unknown, but extremely "useful" tools. You do not even need to make a decision because the all boxes are already filled, and in most cases, it will be really difficult to decline the undesired installations.
  • The straight installation by user. It is also possible, because when some people see a colorful specification of the program, they believe that it is really efficient.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread viruses but it is rarely used by adware. If you read these words, we think, that is gone for good. If you prefer the removal in manual mode, you have to know how to determine that your computer has a virus.

  • Operating System boots very slowly. The processes that turn on at startup are, most often, the cause of slow boot. Inspect the taskbar, and uninstall the suspicious tools from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of advertising in on every page. If the quantity of advertisement has grown up noticeably - this is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical failures when using software, reboot or shutdown of a machine without the user's permission.
  • The appearance of the unknown programs on the PC. If the software appears in your system without your resolution - it is, nothing else than the virus.

If you see one of the described above red flags in your system - you have to do a full scan with help of special software, or manually get rid of all the undesired and harmful programs from your computer. Don't believe in everything you see on the Web, look for the symptoms of virus on your PC, and it will always be fast and efficient.
