How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such kind of viruses, you need to understand precisely in which way got on the laptop. This may happen via three main ways:

  • Download from an untrusted website. When you're on a website, you see a confirmation to install few programs that might seriously assist you in something. The promises of such software are ordinary, they are: 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, providing the info about beneficial deals on the Web, the realization of certain actions in the social networks. All of these options are already integrated into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, so, it means that such programs are simply needless, and the web-page that disseminates them is, apparently, infected.
  • Hijackers might be bundled with good software. Practically every free software proposes you to install something besides the tool that you want. You download the tool, and in one of the windows you see the proposal to install the browser, the new extension for it, removal program, super-useful file manager, and, maybe, some another weird, but very "effective" tools. There's no need to make a decision because the installation has already been verified, and in some cases, it is really hard to cancel the installation of unwanted programs.
  • The straight download by user. It is very possible, because when some customers read a colorful description of software, they decide that it is really useful.

The penetration via e-mail is also highly efficient, but this technique is used most of the times by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. We hope that if you're reading this part of the guide, will be fully eliminated from the laptop. The good antiviruses know how to locate malware, but if you prefer the uninstall in manual mode - you should know all red flags of virus.

  • Slow launch of OS. The majority of viruses, during the installation, tune themselves to launch at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. At the taskbar you will see all currently launched tools, and decide which are reliable and which are not.
  • Appearance of advertising in all tabs. If the quantity of hype has grown up noticeably - this is, most likely, the unwanted software.
  • The reliable software functions slowly and unstable, PC reboots and shuts down by itself.
  • You notice many programs which you've never seen before. If the software emerges on the PC without your permit - it is, most likely, dangerous.

Every of these symptoms shows the virus threat, and the timely reaction is a chance to prevent the harm. Don't trust in everything you see on the Internet, watch for the symptoms of malware on the PC, and it will be ready for any task.
