How to protect the computer?

Although it is really simple to remove StartFenster.de, no one could like to do that every day. The main issue isn't the quality of malware but their quantity. So, each user have to know not only how to uninstall viruses, but in the first place, how to avoid them. Here are some advices that may be helpful for every user to keep his computer clean

  • All deals on the Internet that promise you outstanding profit must be carefully revised before you are getting involved in it. The majority of these offers are harmless, created to boost the website of their developers, but the last 20% of them are leading to true scam schemes that might cost you real money.
  • E-mail is very easy to use for fraud purposes. You must be wary of any e-mails with additional files, or which were sent from suspicious accounts.
  • The installation of any software, and especially the free ones, must be closely revised. People's credulity is the cause of adware's efficiency. All irritating features of advertising programs are written in the windows that users got used to skip. Some hijackers use a trick called "Partner setup" or "quick setting", when in addition to the useful software you get a few useless ones. Suchlike technique of installation is fully unwanted, because you can't be certain about the added software.

These tips are very easy, but they all are allowing you to prevent the infection by harmful software. Even if the use of the advices is making you feel uncomfortable - you have to understand: it is much better to prevent contamination than to face its effects. Let your machine be secure and clean, and if you experienced any issues - please notify us about it in the comments.
