Ransomware may infect the user’s laptop in various manners, trying to trick the customer to let virus penetrate the computer. Advertising programs act differently. In fact, adware aren’t really dangerous and can’t be named “viruses”. They can drive you mad; they make the Internet browsing very difficult, yet they can’t cause any damage to the customer’s PC and the private data. In this regard, advertising utilities are distributed by legal methods. Some users download it by themselves, reading and confirming the EULA. The most effective technique is the bundled installation with useful free programs.
Let’s talk about the additional installation manner. This way is simple: infected files are attached to the installer of useful program. The file is completely closed, and its content can’t be seen. Installation is the only manipulation that man can do and he, in the majority of cases, does this. Thus, if customer installs the wanted software, virus installs too. Promotional tools are spreading in legal ways, so, they need to notify you about their actions, and receive the permission. As long as the virus has not sneaked into the machine you still have some chances to avoid it. This chance is named “installation for experienced users”. During the installation process you can choose in which manner you want to install the program. It may be recommended or advanced. The recommended manner lets the virus to choose what to install. And, in the majority of cases, it decides to install all trash that is there. If you pick the second way, you will see the list of files, ready to be installed, and will have the ability to choose personally, which programs to install. Names of installation techniques may be different, but the core is always the same – the swindlers want to convince you that the best decision is to close your eyes and click “Yes”. If you will understand the manners that harmful programs use to infiltrate your computer, it might help you to avoid infection.
If you wanna know, why there are so much advertising programs, and are they profitable, we can explain it. Actually, at its big value, legal ad brings not many clients. The disposition of any advertising on any web-page costs lots of money, and the cost increases in direct proportion to the value of the site itself. Google and Yahoo offer more complex advertising strategies, but they aren’t as efficient as Perisbritneybig.ru. For advertising on the web-sites, the ratio of views to clicks is not more than 10 to 1. We want to point out that 10 percent is the incredibly good result, but more often the count is between 1 and 0.01%. Adware is leading 90% of its victims to the specified web-site and it will cost less. Many customers don’t consider adware harmful, until their PCs are completely clogged, and use these computers for years, experiencing great discomfort while browsing the Web, and considering that this is normal. Such people ensure a constant flow of visitors to suspicious websites, helping them to function for a long time.
Now, since Perisbritneybig.ru is uninstalled, we want to tell you how to avoid infection for a long time. Besides the anti-viral software, there is another thing that can defend your PC and your information against malware: it’s your own attainments. Programs don’t make errors, but people do, and these mistakes are the main cause of adware infections. There are some rules that you should abide, if you want to keep your machine safe:
- The antivirus on your laptop always has to be updated to the latest version and activated. Some adware may ask you to switch the anti-virus off. It might be executed in form of a pop-up window or in other way. You shouldn’t abide to such requests.
- Do not neglect the browser advices. Internet browsers can easily detect the perilous web-sites, and they see when user tries to perform something suspicious. If the browser notifies you about the peril of some website – don’t go to this site.
- Client should avoid performing anything on the suspicious web-sites. When we say “dangerous”, we mean all the types of web-pages with services “for adults”, foreign exchange broker’s web-pages and lesser-known sites that distribute free media-files or defective goods.
- You must closely follow the installing of all programs. User agreement is too massive, and there is a bunch of useless info, but there might be something considerable. If you are installing the good program, designed by prominent software makers such as Microsoft, Piriform or Kaspersky, you can rely on their standing. But if you are installing free software in such way, you will jeopardize your PC and the information kept on it. When you install any program, it might show you the choice between a “common” and “for advanced users” manner of installation – choose the “complex” option.
- Be watchful with e-mail letters. If you receive a letter that you did not expect, and you don’t know the sender – it is advised not to open it.
- Always store significant data on an external media. If the PC is often subjected to attacks of viruses, the best solution would be to keep the significant data on an external media, which may become your backup if the laptop will be heavily infected.
The advices are easy, but the profits from the adherence to them are really high. If some of your requests are still unanswered – just comment this item and we will answer you ASAP.
