In rare cases user isn't responsible for adware getting into the machine, as it was installed by Trojan virus. But guess who let it to infect the PC?

How gets into the system

Sponsored download is the easiest, swiftest and most efficient manner to spread a utility over the Net. Scammers just pick several tool, one of which is decent and the others are not, and unite them in one bundle. During the installation of a helpful tool, you’ll see a proposition to install the hazardous programs as well. Occasionally the installation cannot be declined, but most times customers simply do not notice it as they’re okaying through to install the bundle without bothering to look at the information in all those annoying menus.

How to protect the system

Now we'll explain to you how you can guard the PC from malware, adware, Trojans and the majority of the perilous tools. It's a serious business, and will require lots of efforts. The technique involves some behavioral patterns and habits you should follow, but it's not that bad and you will get used to it. Here’s our advice:

  • And, of course,, you should inspect all info that is displayed while you're installing any free software. Let’s put it like this: it's not necessary to the full EULA, but you have to watch out for proposals of any installations besides the tool that you've wanted. If you see such offers – you need to watch out.
  • The advice #1 to defend the machine will be to forget about pirated software. If an utility is free and you know for sure that it can be trusted – just find the vendor’s webpage, and there won't be any issues. For pirated utility – you can only see it on torrent trackers. Suchlike sites don't care about protection, and each file might have adware.
  • You need to remember that many webpages are not good. Fraudsters are trying to make you think that your workstation is infested, by locking an open tab and making you allow a download of any other utility. If the website's seems to suffer a critical error – simply close your browser via Process Manager, and run it back again without visiting the viral website. No site is able to scan the device for viruses within a blink of an eye and tell whether it is infected or not.
  • You should not click on everything you see. That is the habit you'd better build: you're searching for something – get it from the reputable search engine. If advertisement emerges on any site or on your workstation, it's not obvious that you should click it. If you get the offer to download some utility and claims that it’s useful – google its name. To discover in a timely manner - type the word "eliminate".
