How to protect the computer?

To prevent such issues in the future, you must know for sure in which way got into the machine. This can happen through three main techniques:

  • Download from a suspicious site. When you are on a web-site, you are shown a confirmation to install special software that would greatly help you in some things. Suchlike programs have the bounded list of features: the realization of certain actions in the social networks, providing the info about beneficial deals on the Web, search for the latest unpaid media-content such as music, games and movies, automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, the enhancement of Internet surfing. If on some site you find a suggestion to install the tool with similar functions - it is very harmful, and the web-page itself is suspicious.
  • Download in bundles with worthy tools. Practically each free software allows you to install something except the tool that you want. You download the tool, and in one of the windows you see the suggestion of the installation of the browser, the new toolbar for it, special tool, marvelous media player, and God knows what else. The installation is already confirmed, and as soon as you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll install 3-4 tools that you do not need, except the one that you would like to get.
  • The direct download by user. It is also possible, because when some customers see an alluring specification of software, they think that it is highly useful.

The infection via e-mail is also extremely efficient, but this method is used most of the cases by malware and ransomware, and not by advertisement software. If you read these words, we believe, that adware is gone for good. If you prefer the removal in manual mode, you must know how to realize that there is a virus on your PC.

  • The system boots really slowly. The processes that turn on at startup are, most often, the reason of long boot. Look at the taskbar, and remove the useless programs from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of ads in all tabs. If the numbers of ads increased notably - that is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical errors while using programs, shutdown or reboot of a PC without the user's consent.
  • You see a lot of programs that you've never seen before. If the tool shows up in your system without your resolution - it's, most likely, undesired.

If you notice one of these symptoms in your system - you need to make an overall scan with assistance of AV-program, or manually delete all the useless and malicious tools from your system. Don't believe in everything you see on the Net, look for the symptoms of virus on your computer, and it will always be fast and functional.
