Search engines do an important job: they check all the web-sites on the Web to show the user only the most reliable ones. Each site is meticulously tested, and control can be passed only by those ones that are completely fine. All other sites can be called unreliable, or even dangerous. This examination is named indexing, and it requires a significant numbers of people and resources, because thousands of web-sites of varying grades are created every day, and the new, items, partitions and pages emerge on the sites that are already checked. But, when the customer installs adware, he refuses the features of the reputable search engine, and replaces them with malware services. Adware hasn’t enough resources to index the websites as Yahoo does.

You have almost 100% probability that this website is dangerous, and has no relation to the thing that you need to find.

Ransomware may penetrate customer’s workstation in lots of techniques, in attempts to force the user to let virus penetrate the system. Commercial software have no need to try so hard. Officially, adware aren’t malicious and cannot be named “viruses”. They are annoying; they make the Internet surfing hard as hell, but they can’t inflict direct harm to the user’s computer and the information, stored on it. In this regard, adware is distributed absolutely legal. Many users download it personally, after they read and confirm the license agreement. The most efficient way is an installation in one package with useful free software.
The latter technique has to be reviewed separately, since it’s the most popular way of penetration by adware and hijackers, as well as by all kinds of phony browsers and tools. This way is easy: harmful files are attached to the installer of useful program. Such file is completely closed, and you can’t see what’s inside. The only thing that victim can do with such file is installation. It means that if you will install the software that you searched for, adware will install too. Advertising extensions are distributed in legal ways, so, they need to inform the user about their installation, and gain the allowance. When the malware is outside the system the customer still has few chances to avoid the problems. The chance is named “advanced installation”. The choice can be found in a separate window, during installation, where you are asked to select the installation process type between “preferable” and “difficult”. The first method means that you just install anything that is in this file, even if there will be dozens of completely pointless tools. If you pick the advanced manner, you will be shown a list of tools, prepared for the installation, and will be able to choose personally, which programs to install. Names of installation ways might differ, but the point is always the same – the criminals want to show that the best decision is to close your eyes and click “Yes”. We hope that knowing the ways that malware uses to invade your computer, it may assist you to protect your PC.
Some customers want to know for what reason hackers create advertising tools that irritate customers so badly, if they can simply put banners in designated places? Actually, at its big cost, legitimate advertising attracts not many clients. The disposition of any advertisement on any website is worth the money, and the cost grows in direct proportion to the web-page attendance. Promotional deployment of the web-site in Google search results is even more expensive. For ads on the websites, the ratio of views to clicks is not more than 10 to 1. We have to specify that ten percent is the incredibly good result, but usually the count goes on tenths of a percent. Adware can lead 90% of users to the needed web-site at lower cost. Many people do not consider adware hazardous, until their computers are completely dead, and use those computers for years, experiencing different problems during the use of Web, and considering that this is the usual thing. Suchlike people ensure a regular flow of victims to untrusted sites, helping them to function for a long time.
If you executed all steps properly, malware must be deleted for now, and the only thing left to do is to defend your computer from all other threats. Everybody knows that the antivirus is the foundation of your machine’s defense, but one software is not enough. Most often, the customer is the weakest point of anti-viral system, which lets undesired program to enter the PC. There are some rules that you should abide, if you want to keep your laptop protected:
- Antivirus is the frontline of your system’s protection, that’s why it must be decent and updated. Even if you will receive a system message with the request to turn off an anti-viral program to download any software, you should not do that. Good programs do not want you to switch off the anti-virus for their work, so this message is try to infect the computer.
- You shouldn’t neglect the advices of your browser. Browsers also can recognize the malicious web-pages, and they perceive when user tries to make something suspicious. If your browser warns you about the unreliability of some website – do not visit it.
- Don’t use the capabilities of hazardous sites. By the word “unreliable”, we mean all the types of web-pages with pornographic content, foreign exchange broker’s web-sites and cheapjack web-sites that spread pirated software or defective products.
- You need to watch carefully for the installation of any tools. User agreement is quite boring, and contains a bunch of useless data, but if you’ll read it – you might know something substantial. If you are installing the licensed program, designed by reputed software makers such as Adobe, Kaspersky or Apple, you can rely on their fame. But if you are installing free programs in such way, you’ll put at risk your laptop and the files kept there. If during the installing you are given the choice between a “common” and “complex” way of installation – pick the “advanced” variant.
- E-mail is very handy way for swindlers to distribute adware. If you have a letter, which you did not wait for, and you do not know who send it – you should not open it.
- Always copy significant files on an external media. If the laptop is often subjected to attacks of adware, the wisest solution would be to keep the significant information on an external hard drive, which may assist you if the workstation will be heavily contaminated.
