How to protect the system

We know how anyone can protect the browser from Trojans, suspicious ads, viruses and the majority of the perilous tools. It's a pretty serious deal, which requires lots of efforts. The way consists of some behavioral patterns and habits you should abide, but it's not that hard and you’ll become accustomed to it. Here’s our advice:

  • The advice #1 to shield your device will be to not to use cracked soft. If a tool is free of charge and you know for sure that it’s reliable – just find it on the reliable sources, and there won't be any issues. For cracked software – there won't be trusted websites – just torrent trackers. You won’t find good defense on those sites, and each file might be infected.
  • You need to cease clicking. This is the wont you'd better build: you need something – get it from the good search engine. If advertising appears on some webpage or in your OS, you should refrain from clicking on it. If someone suggests you to download a tool and says that it’s great – use Google to learn more about it. The best proofs come when you google it with "eliminate".
  • You'd better recall that some websites are not to be trusted. Hackers are trying to make you think that your machine is infested, by taking over an open tab and making you allow an installation of anything else. If it happened to you – quickly close its process through Task Manager, and you’ll be alright. No webpage is capable of scanning your system for malware within a moment and tell if it’s contaminated or not.
  • Another serious thing is that, you have to monitor the info that appears while you're installing any gratis program. Let’s put it like this: you don’t need to the full EULA, just watch out for offers to install any software besides the needed utility. If you see such offers – you should watch out.
