Malware may invade the user’s computer in various ways, in attempts to force you to let virus enter the system. Adware do it another way. In fact, adware aren’t malicious and cannot be called “viruses”. They are annoying; they interfere to surf the Internet, but they can’t cause direct harm to your workstation and the personal files. In this regard, adware is spreaded fully legal. Some users install it by themselves, on the website. The most popular way is the download in bundle with useful toll-free programs.
The technique of bundled penetration has to be explained separately, because it is the very common way of infection by viruses and hijackers, as well as by all kinds of counterfeit browsers and toolbars. This manner is easy: infected files are added to the installer of free tool. Such file cannot be opened, and its content cannot be seen. The only action that victim can perform with such file is to run the installation. This means that if you’ll install the tool that you looked for, virus installs too. Even if advertising program causes lots of inconveniences, it is absolutely legal, since it doesn’t spoil the PC and the files, stored on it. At the moment of penetration the user still has the chances to avoid it. “Advanced installation” is the opportunity to intercept the malicious program until it enters your laptop. It can be found in a separate box, during installation, where the virus asks you to choose the installation method between “preferable” and “for skilled users”. The recommended method means that you just install anything that is in the file, even if there are ten completely futile programs. If you pick the advanced manner, you will see all programs, prepared to be installed, and will have the chance to decide personally, what to install. Actually, it doesn’t matter how the installation techniques are named – the bottom line is that the web want you to be dumb and abide to their instructions. If you will understand the methods that unwanted programs use to penetrate your PC, it might assist you to avoid infection.
Many visitors want to know why scammers create adware that irritate users so badly, if they can easily publish advertisements in designated places? That’s really easy: the value of the legitimate advertisement is major and its performance is too low. You cannot just locate the banner on the reputable site, because it will cost a lot. Commercial placement of the website 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 should itemize that ten percent is a phenomenally good outcome, but commonly the count goes on tenths of a percent. Advertising tool is leading 100% of customers to the needed page at lower cost. Most people don’t consider adware hazardous, until their PCs are absolutely dead, and use those laptops for years, having significant discomfort while browsing the Web, and considering that it’s OK. Such customers provide a regular flow of visitors to untrusted sites, helping them to function for a many years.
Now, if adware is deleted, you should understand how to avoid such threats for a long time. You know that the anti-viral program is the basis of your PC’s defense, but just software isn’t enough. Most often, the operator is the weakest link of anti-viral system, which allows malware to enter the PC. To avoid the infection you need to abide to certain rules, so we created a list for you:
- Anti-virus is the first line of your system’s protection, that’s why it must be turned on and updated. Some malware can ask you to switch the anti-viral program off. It may come in form of a pop-up window or in different manner. Such messages are absolutely viral, and you should disregard them.
- You should not neglect the browser advices. Browsers have very efficient techniques of threat detection and reaction on user’s dangerous actions. If the browser warns you about the peril of the web-site – you shouldn’t visit it.
- Never use the facilities of perilous websites. When we say “unreliable”, we mean any kind of sites with X-rated content, web-sites of foreign exchange brokers and third-class websites that distribute pirated software or defective goods.
- Always closely supervise the installing of all tools. License agreement is too massive, and there is a bunch of unnecessary info, but there may be something considerable. During the installation of the worthy program, created by reputed software vendors such as Piriform, Microsoft or Kaspersky, you can trust in their name. But if you are installing free programs in this way, you will jeopardize your PC and the information stored on it. If during the installation you are given the choice between a “simple” and “for advanced users” way of installing – choose the second variant.
- Be watchful with e-mails. If you gain a letter that you did not expect, and you do not know who send it – you shouldn’t open it.
- Always copy significant files on an external hard drive. If the PC is often attacked by perilous programs, the best choice would be to store the important files on an external hard drive, which might assist you in the case of particularly heavy infection.
