Malware might get into the user’s laptop in lots of methods, trying to deceive the operator to let malware enter the PC. Commercial software don’t need to try so hard. In fact, the advertisement utilities don’t cause immediate injuries to man’s system and cannot be named “viruses”. They can drive you mad; they interfere to use the Internet, although they can’t inflict any injury to your system and the data, stored on it. In this regard, adware is distributed fully legal. Many customers install it personally, reading and confirming the EULA. The most effective technique is the download in one package with useful unpaid programs.
You should know what is the additional installation manner. The way is not difficult: viral files are attached to the.Exe file of the wanted software. The file cannot be opened, and you can’t see what’s in there. The only thing that user can perform with this file is to run the installation. This means that if you’ll install the program that you wanted to, virus installs too. Even if adware causes some inconveniences, it is completely lawful, since it doesn’t injure the machine and the information, kept on it. As long as adware has not crept onto the computer you still have a chance to avoid infection. The opportunity to do so is called “installation for experienced users”. The option comes in a special box, during installation, where you are asked to select the installation way between “recommended” and “difficult”. The easy way means that you just click install button until the installation procedure will end. If you choose the advanced way, you will see all tools, prepared for the installation, and will be able to decide personally, which programs to install. Actually, it doesn’t matter how the installation techniques are called – point is that the scammers want you to be stupid and follow the instructions. We hope that knowing the manners that viruses use to break into your system, it may assist you to avoid infection.
If you want to understand, why there are so much advertising programs, and is it profitable, we can tell you. This question is easy to answer: the cost of the legal ads is too big and its effectiveness is too low. The deployment of any ad on any site is worth the money, and the price increases in direct proportion to the web-site attendance. Commercial disposition of the website in search results of any search engine is even more worthy. At the same time, this advertisement on any site can attract no more than 10% of all visitors who have seen a banner. We will specify that 10 percent is a phenomenally great outcome, but ordinarily the ratio is between 1 and 0.01%. Advertising program can lead 90% of customers to the needed web-site and it will cost less. Usually, users don’t think that adware is hazardous, until their computers are completely dead, and use those computers for years, suffering the different issues when surfing the Web, and considering that this is normal. These people ensure a constant flow of visitors to suspicious websites, assisting them to function for a long time.
Now, when adware is deleted, we will explain you how to protect your system from infection for a long time. Besides the anti-viral tool, there is another thing that will defend your PC and your data against unwanted harmful programs: it’s your own knowledge. Programs don’t make mistakes, but people do, and these errors are the main cause of malware infections. To prevent the infection you should abide to certain advices, so we made a list for you:
- The anti-virus on your machine should always be properly updated and enabled. Some adware might ask you to turn the antivirus off. It might be performed in form of the system message or in other manner. You must not abide to suchlike requests.
- Do not neglect the browser prompts. Browsers have their own ways of adware tracking and counteraction against user’s hazardous actions. If the browser warns you about the unreliability of some page – you shouldn’t go to this site.
- Never use the facilities of unreliable web-pages. When we say “untrusted”, we mean any type of web-pages with services “for adults”, web-sites of foreign exchange brokers and shoddy web-sites, which spread pirated content or defective products.
- Always carefully observe the installation of any software. User agreement is too massive, and contains a bunch of useless information, but there may be something important. During the installation of the good software, made by internationally renowned software vendors such as Apple, Piriform or Skype, you can trust in their fame. But the young developers spend all time in search of funds, and they might accept to spread viruses via their own software. If during the installation you are given the choice between a “common” and “for advanced users” manner of installation – pick the “advanced” option.
- E-mail messages are the highly comfortable manner for web-criminals to spread adware. If you have a message that you did not expect, and you do not know who send it – it is advised not to click on it.
- Always keep important information on an external media. If your laptop is often subjected to attacks of hazardous software, the wisest choice would be to keep the significant information on an external media that may help you if the system will be heavily contaminated.
If you adhere to all these hints, you will avoid getting any malware. If some of your requests are still unanswered – explain it in the “comments” box and we will reply to you ASAP.
