  • Download from an untrusted web-page. Some websites spread the malware and aren't even hiding it. The promises of these programs are ordinary, they are: automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, the execution of specific actions in Facebook, showing the information about beneficial discounts on the Web, the enhancement of Internet browsing, providing the latest free content such as games, music and movies. If on any website you receive a suggestion to download the software with these functions - it is completely malicious, and the site itself is untrusted.
  • Download in the package with free software. If you often use the unpaid software, you are familiar with this. You download the program, and then you see the window with the proposal of the installation of the browser, the additional extension for it, super-useful media player, AV-software, and God knows what else. The checkboxes are already filled, and if you press "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll get 4-5 trashy programs, instead of one that you would like to have.
  • The direct download by user. It is highly possible, because when some people see a tempting specification of software, they think that it is really effective.

  • Windows boots extremely slowly. The tools that launch at startup are, in most cases, the reason of long boot. Inspect the taskbar, and uninstall the undesired tools from Control Panel.
  • The reliable programs functions unstable and slow, machine restarts and shuts down by itself.
  • The appearance of the strange tools in your system. If the tool shows up on your computer without your resolution - it's, most likely, undesired.
