How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such virus, you should realize precisely in which way got into the workstation. This happens via three main manners:

  • Download from a malicious web-page. Some web-sites disseminate the hijackers without any precautions. Such programs have the confined list of functions: automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, search for the latest unpaid media-content such as music, games and movies, the realization of certain actions in the social networks, the enhancement of Internet surfing, providing the info about beneficial deals on the Web. If on the web-page you find an offer to install the tool with these features - it is completely malicious, and the site itself is suspicious.
  • Hijackers can be bundled with reliable tools. Almost each free tool proposes you to install something except the needed tool. You download the program, and in one of the windows you see the proposal of the installation of the brilliant file manager, AV-program, browser, the additional toolbar for it, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and once you press "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll get 4-5 programs that you do not need, besides the one that you wish to use.
  • In some cases user downloads adware voluntarily. Clever written description of the software and its brilliant (and nonexistent) functions deludes the customer, and he installs adware.

The infection via viral e-mail attachment is also highly popular, but this technique is used mostly by malware and ransomware, and not by advertisement software. If you came to this part, we suppose, that hijacker is gone for good. The well anti-viral software know how to recognize malware, but if you prefer the disposal in manual mode - you have to know all signs of virus.

  • Windows boots extremely slowly. The tools that run at startup are, in most cases, the reason of long boot. Look at the taskbar, and delete the undesired software from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of advertisement in the browser. If the amount of advertisement has grown up notably - that is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical errors while using tools, shutdown or restart of a machine without the user's consent.
  • You notice many installed tools that you haven't installed. If the tool emerges in your system without your resolution - it's, most likely, unwanted.

If you notice one of these red flags in your system - you should perform a total scan through antivirus, or manually uninstall all the useless and dangerous software from your system. Don't believe in everything you see on the Internet, watch at the condition of your computer, and it will always be fast and effective.
