Ransomware may infect customer’s PC in many techniques, trying to trick you to let malicious software penetrate the system. Adware do it another way. In fact, the advertising tools are not harmful and can’t be named “viruses”. They can irritate user; they interfere to surf the Web, although they do not cause any injury to your system and the personal info. In this regard, advertising software are distributed in legal ways. Some customers download it by themselves, after they read and confirm the license agreement. The most popular manner is the download in one package with other toll-free software.
Let’s talk about the bundled installation way. The way is simple: viral files are attached to the installer of the wanted software. Such file cannot be inspected, and you can’t see what you are installing. The only thing that you can do with this file is to run the installation. It means that if user installs the wanted tool, virus installs too. Even if adware calls some inconveniences, it is absolutely legal, since it doesn’t injure the system and the files, kept on it. When the virus isn’t inside the PC you still have few chances to avoid infection. This chance is called “advanced installation”. The choice can be found in a special window, during installation, where you are asked to pick the installation manner between “easy” and “for professional users”. The easy method is that you will simply install anything that is inside the file, even if there are dozens of completely pointless tools. If you pick the advanced manner, you will see all files, ready to be installed, and will have the chance to choose personally, what to install. Actually, no matter how the setup methods are called – core is that the scammers want you to be stupid and abide to the instructions. If you will understand the manners that adware uses to penetrate your PC, it may help you to protect your laptop.
Some readers are wondering; why hackers make advertising tools that irritate users so much, if they can easily publish advertisements in designated areas? In fact, at its big price, legitimate advertising attracts not many customers. You cannot just place the ad on top of the reputable website, because it will cost a lot. Promotional placement of the web-site in Google search results is even more worthy. According to the statistics, this advertising on the website attracts an average of no more than 10% of all visitors which have seen a banner. We should point out that ten percent is a phenomenally great outcome, but commonly the ratio is between 1 and 0.01%. Adware can redirect almost all users to the specified website and it will cost less. The majority of users don’t understand that adware is undesired, until their PCs are absolutely dead, and use those computers for years, experiencing big discomfort when using the Internet, and considering that it’s the usual thing. Such customers are creating a permanent flow of visitors to untrusted web-sites, assisting them to work for a many years.
If you executed all steps correctly, malware must be uninstalled at this time, and now you have to secure your machine from the future viral attacks. Though the antivirus is the foundation of protection for your computer, but just software is not enough. Software don’t allow failures, but customers do, and such failures are the only cause of malware infections. To avoid the infection you should abide to few rules, so we created a list for you:
- Anti-viral tool is the frontline of your machine’s security, that’s why it should be working and updated. Even if you will get a system message with the request to turn off an anti-virus to download something, you should not do this. Licensed software species do not ask you to turn off the anti-viral program for their work, so the message is try to break-in.
- Do not neglect the browser prompts. Internet browsers have really effective manners of adware tracking and resistance against user’s dangerous actions. If the browser tells you that the site is perilous – don’t go to this site.
- Client should avoid making anything on the hazardous web-sites. By the word “perilous”, we mean all the types of sites with services “for adults”, ForEx broker’s websites and third-class sites, which spread not licensed content or substandard products.
- You should closely supervise the installing of all programs. User agreement is too massive, and contains a bunch of useless information, but if you’ll inspect it – you may know something useful. If you are installing the good software, designed by world-known software makers such as Adobe, Kaspersky or Microsoft, you can believe in their standing. But the unknown developers always need funds, and they easily accept to bundle their programs with malware. When you install any tool, it may give you the option between a “common” and “for advanced users” way of installing – choose the “complex” option.
- E-mail is really comfortable technique for scammers to spread viruses. If you have a message that you did not expect, and you do not know the sender – it is better not to click on it.
- Always keep significant files on an external drive. If your PC is often subjected to attacks of malware, the safest solution would be to keep the significant data on an external media that will assist you in the case of particularly heavy infection.
