How to protect the computer?

To prevent similar problems, you should know for sure in which way FastPOS got on the computer. This happens through three main methods:

  • Download from a viral web-page. When you are on a website, you are shown a confirmation to download brilliant programs that would greatly assist you in some cases. These programs have the bounded list of features: the performance of specific tasks in Facebook, acting installation of each driver or update for your gear, search for the newest toll-free content such as movies, music and games, search for most profitable offers on the Net, the enhancement of Web browsing. Every such option is already built into the browsers, or present in the list of Windows services, which means - these programs are completely useless, and the website, which distributes them is, apparently, dangerous.
  • Viruses might be attached to good software. Practically each free software suggests you to install something besides the needed tool. You install the software, and in one of the windows you see the proposal to install the AV-software, browser, the new add-on for it, brilliant media player, and God knows what else. The installation is already confirmed, and if you press "OK", the installation begins, and you’ll install 3-4 suspicious tools, instead of one that you want to install.
  • Sometimes user downloads viruses voluntarily. Clever composed specification of the product and its wonderful (and nonexistent) features deludes the user, and he downloads adware.

The e-mails are used very often, to spread viruses but the hijackers almost don't use it. If you see this paragraph, we believe, that adware is already eliminated. If you prefer the removal in manual mode, you should know how to understand that there is malware on your PC.

  • Slow boot of Operating System. The processes that launch at startup are, most often, the cause of long boot. Inspect the taskbar, and search for unwanted tools.
  • Appearance of advertisement in on every page. If the amount of hype has grown up notably - it is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • The reputable software runs unstable and slow, PC restarts and turns off by itself.
  • The appearance of the bizarre tools in your system. If the software appears in the system without your permit - it is, most likely, malicious.

Every of these symptoms informs about the malware threat, and the timely reaction is a way to prevent the damage. Be cautious on the Web, look for the symptoms of virus on the PC, and it will be ready for anything.
