How to get rid of malware?

Many users face issues like the sudden appearance of annoying ad units with a proposal to buy something, get rid of viruses, immediately update vulnerable components of their system, etc. And these messages not only do pop up while playing game(s) on the browser (with the ad blocker on service), but also during normal work on the computer. This suggests that your system is infected with a malicious file or an unwanted browser extension, having the common name of Adware, Malware. If you follow the links suggested by those pop-ups and ads, it’s likely that you’ll make the situation worse.

Untrusted anti-virus or anti-spyware software will not solve the problem!

The first thing you need to do is check your system for malware. We recommend checking the system not with one, but with several antiviruses alternately. Also, most anti-viruses recommend checking your PC in safe mode.

Here are some simple, free, but effective antivirus programs: «Kaspersky Security Cloud (Free)», «Avast Free Antivirus», «360 Total Security».

Lastly, it does not hurt to install extensions in your browser that warns about dangerous websites or block unwanted ads. So, the following extensions are recommended to help you: «Adguard», «Ghostery», «Adblock Plus».
