How to protect the computer?

To prevent penetration by such kind of hijackers in the future, you have to realize precisely how Searchgoo.com got onto the computer. This occurs through three main methods:

  • Download from a dangerous web-site. When you are on a web-page, you see a confirmation to download certain software that might greatly help you in something. The functions of such programs are common, they are: the enhancement of Internet surfing, providing the info about beneficial deals on the Web, automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, the realization of certain actions in the social networks, search for the latest unpaid media-content such as music, games and movies. Every such feature is already integrated into the browsers, or is in the operating system tools list, so, it means that these software are absolutely worthless, and the site that propagates them is, very likely, harmful.
  • Download in the package with good tools. If you often use the free software, you understand what that means. You download the program, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the proposal to get the super-useful file manager, antivirus, browser, the additional extension for it, and God knows what else. There's no need to decide anything because the installation has already been verified, and in most cases, it will be very complicated to cancel the undesired installations.
  • The straight download by user. Carefully written specification of the product and its magnificent (and nonexistent) features deceives the customer, and he installs malware.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread undesired programs but the hijackers almost don't use it. If you see these words, we believe, that adware is already eliminated. If you choose the deletion in manual manner, you must know how to understand that there is a virus on your machine.

  • Slow loading of OS. Most of the viruses, during the installation, tune themselves to run at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. Look at the taskbar, and search for undesired tools.
  • Appearance of advertisement in the browser. If the numbers of advertising increased notably - that is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical errors while using tools, restart or shutdown of a PC without your permit.
  • The appearance of the bizarre tools on the PC. If the program appears on the computer without your consent - it is, most likely, undesired.

Any of these symptoms informs about the virus threat, and the timely reaction is a way to avoid the damage. Don't believe in everything you see on the Net, follow the state of your machine, and it will anytime be fast and effective.
