How gets into the system

Bundled infection is the fastest, easiest and most effective way to spread any tool over the Web. Swindlers just pick several tool, one of which is decent and all the others aren’t, and adjoin them in one installation file. During the installation of a helpful utility, you will see an offer to install the other ones. Occasionally you can call it off, on occasion you cannot, but in most cases customers just don’t notice it as they’re clicking their way to installation without bothering to read the information in all those irritating menus. That's why we've stated that you’ve invited adware into the OS.

How to protect the system

We know how you can defend the PC from adware, viruses, Trojans and the majority of other dangerous utilities. It's a serious business, which requires a lot of efforts. The method consists of a few behavioral patterns and habits you should abide, but it's not too bad and you will get used to it. Here’s our advice:

  • The first hint to shield the PC is to not to use cracked soft. When a program is free and you know for sure that it’s useful – just download it from the developer’s site, and you won’t get any problems. In case of a pirated utility – you can only find it on torrent trackers. You won’t get reliable defense on those sites, and every file could contain adware.
  • And, naturally,, you need to read all info that is displayed during the installation of any toll-free tool. Let’s rephrase it: you don’t have to the full EULA, but you need to ignore offers to install any software besides the desired utility. If those proposals are displayed – you’d better act carefully.
  • You'd better recall that lots of webpages are not reliable. Swindlers might make you think that the machine is contaminated, by taking over an open tab and forcing you to allow a download of anything else. If it happened to you – just close the browser via Process Manager, and open it once more without visiting the infected website. No webpage is capable of scanning the system for malware within a few seconds and tell if it’s infected or not.
  • You need to stop clicking. That is the practice you'd better create: you want something – get it from the good search engine. If a banner appears on any webpage or on your workstation, you have to abstain from clicking on it. If you get the suggestion to download a program and states that it’s useful – use Google to realize what it is. The best results come when you add "remove".
