The most widespread technique of infection for these tools is to play a useful program.

Improved detection of bargains and sells, indication of recent activity of your subscribers on Facebook, quick search and other stupid features – that’s what such programs are proposing. Actually, they don't care about these things and simply generate the irritating advertising.

How to protect the computer?

90% of all malware in the Web are quite easy to delete, because they aren't too complex. It is not profitably for hackers to make high-quality malware, so they just create lots of low-grade programs instead of several highly perilous ones. So, every user should understand not only how to uninstall viruses, but in the first place, how to avoid them. Here are few advices which might assist you to make your computer clean

  • All deals in the Web that promise you incredible profit needs to be taken skeptically. 80% of such propositions are harmless, made to boost the website on which they are placed, but some of them are leading to true scam schemes which could make you experience the serious losses.
  • E-mail is very simple to use for scammer's purposes. If you do not recognize the person who sent the message - you shouldn't click on it. The e-mail attachments should be only opened with help of "sandbox" programs.
  • Every time you install something, you need to closely read the EULA. In these windows there is a lot of important information such as place of installation, the terms of agreement and other things. Some hijackers use a manner called "Partner setup" or "fast setting", which means that in addition to the desired program you get 3-4 useless ones. You have to reject these offers, because viruses use this technique of distribution very often.

These advices are pretty easy, but every one of them gives you a chance to avoid the infection by malware. Even if the implementation of the advices is causing you uneasiness - you need to remember: they are the foundation of system security. Let your system be secure and clean, and if you have some issues - just let us know in the comments.
