Viruses might get onto man’s workstation in many techniques, in attempts to trick you to install a harmful file. Adware don’t need to try so hard. Officially, the advertisement programs aren’t malicious and can’t be named “viruses”. They are annoying; they interfere to surf the Net, but they do not cause direct injury to your PC and the data, stored on it. In this regard, adware is distributed by legal methods. Some victims download it personally, from its web-site. The most popular way is an installation in bundle with other unpaid programs.
The “bundled” technique should be inspected severally, as it’s the very efficient cause of infection by adware and redirects, as well as by all kinds of fraud browsers and toolbars. This way is easy: virus files are attached to the installation file of the wanted software. This file is completely closed, and you can’t see what’s in there. The only action that customer can perform with such file is to install it. Thus, if user installs the program that you looked for, virus installs too. Even if advertising program causes many inconveniences, it is absolutely legal, since it doesn’t injure the PC and files. When the adware is outside the machine the user still has a chance to avoid the problems. The chance is called “advanced installation”. During the installation process you can choose in which manner you want to install the program. It may be recommended or advanced. The easy method is that you just press OK button until the installation process will end. If you choose the second technique, you will be shown a list of programs, ready for the installation, and will be able to choose personally, what to install. Names of installation techniques may be different, but the point is really simple – the scammers are trying to show that the best choice is to stop thinking and press “Yes”. If you will know the ways, which adware uses to break into your machine, it might assist you to avoid infection.
If you wanna know, why there are so much adware, and are they profitable, we will tell you. This question is easy to answer: the value of the legal advertising is too big and its performance is too poor. You cannot simply locate the advertisement on the popular website, because it will cost a lot. Commercial placement of the site in search results of any search engine is even more worthy. For banners on the web-sites, the ratio of views to clicks is not more than 10 to 1. We should precise that ten percent is the incredibly great outcome, but commonly the count goes on tenths of a percent. Adware is leading almost all customers to the needed web-page and it will cost less. Most people don’t consider adware hazardous, until their machines are totally dead, and use those computers for years, having great discomfort during the use of Web, and thinking that it’s OK. Such customers provide a constant flow of visitors to untrusted web-pages, helping them to function for a long time.
If you performed all steps properly, adware must be deleted for now, and the only thing left to do is to defend your PC from the future viral attacks. Except the AV-tool, there is another thing that may defend your machine and your data against malware: it’s your own experience. Programs don’t make mistakes, but people do, and these mistakes are the main cause of viral infections. To avoid the infection you should abide to certain rules, so we made a list for you:
- The antivirus on your PC should always be properly updated and enabled. Some adware might ask you to disable the antivirus. It might be performed in form of the system message or in other manner. You shouldn’t listen to suchlike requests.
- Do not neglect the browser advices. Browsers have very efficient ways of malware finding and counteraction against customer’s dangerous doings. If the browser warns you that a particular page is hazardous – do not go to this site.
- You shouldn’t use the facilities of perilous web-pages. When we say “malicious”, we mean all the sorts of sites with pornographic content, ForEx broker’s websites and shoddy sites, which spread free software or defective products.
- Always watch carefully for the installation of any programs. User agreement is too massive, and there is a bunch of useless data, but if you’ll read it – you might know something considerable. During the installation of the paid software, created by world-known software vendors such as Skype, Apple or Adobe, you can believe in their name. But the junior developers spend all time in search of resources, and they easily consent to spread malware with help of their own software. If during the installing you are given the choice between a “recommended” and “for advanced users” manner of installing – pick the “advanced” variant.
- E-mail messages are the very handy way for hackers to spread suspicious programs. If you gain a letter that you didn’t expect, and you don’t know the sender – you should not open it.
- Always store important data on an external hard drive. If the machine is often attacked by malware, the right choice would be to store the significant info on an external media, which might become your backup in the case of highly dangerous infection.
If you adhere to these advices, you can avoid getting any adware. If you still got some problems to solve – just comment this item and we will answer you ASAP.
