How to protect the computer?

There is one simple thing that you should know about PC virus: how not to let it sneak onto the PC. This occurs via three basic manners:

  • Infection through a dangerous website. Some websites propagate the unwanted software and they don't even try to hide it. The features of such programs are common, they are: providing the info about beneficial deals on the Web, automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, search for the latest unpaid media-content such as music, games and movies, the enhancement of Internet surfing, the realization of certain actions in the social networks. If on any website you receive an offer to download the program with similar functions - it is really dangerous, and the web-page itself is unsafe.
  • Download in bundles with free tools. Nearly every free software allows you to install something except the tool that you wish. You install the software, and in one of the windows you see the proposal of the installation of the antivirus, browser, the new add-on for it, miraculous media player, and, maybe, some different weird, but highly "useful" tools. The checkboxes are already filled, and if you press "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll get 2-3 suspicious tools, except the needed one.
  • In some cases user downloads adware by his own will. Carefully written description of the software and its marvelous (and nonexistent) features misguides the customer, and he sets up malware.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute malware but the adware almost don't use it. If you see these words, we think, that adware is already eliminated. If you choose the by-hand deletion, you have to know how to realize that your system has malware.

  • Slow boot of Operating System. The processes that launch at startup are, most often, the cause of long boot. Check the taskbar, and remove the undesired programs from Control Panel.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the numbers of advertising increased notably - that is, most likely, adware or hijacker.
  • Critical errors when using tools, restart or shutdown of a laptop without your resolution.
  • You see a lot of software that you haven't installed. If the tool appears on the PC without your consent - it is, nothing else than the virus.

Each of these red flags informs about the malware threat, and if you react in time - you will avoid the damage. Be cautious on the Internet, track the condition of your machine, and it will be ready for anything.
