It is impossible to imagine our life without internet. Thanks to the World Wide Web, everyone has opportunities for education, work, entertainment and search of information. We learn something new, keep in touch with friends and family, can make purchases online. But as often happens - when there are new opportunities that facilitate our lives - there is always something in opposition. And today the Internet is fraught with many dangers.
One of the main dangers should be considered computer viruses. Despite the fact that viruses have appeared much earlier than the Internet became popular, is it the Internet that has become a major catalyst for their development. The rapid development and commercialization of Web opened new horizons for virus writers, which undoubtedly occurred them to taste. That is what the Internet has given to the viruses and their creators:
To date, the majority of computer viruses spread through the Internet. They get on our computers from the infected web sites and through fraudulent advertising network. Sometimes we are opening the door to viruses, when running dubious programs of unknown origin or agreeing to run "flash player update" and "browser update" (which are not updates at all). Today viruses mainly perform many “additional” tasks, aimed at enriching their developers. In their malicious activity, we can identify a number of key areas:

Let us understand what it is. Delta Toolbar, Ask.com, Yahoo! Toolbar, Babylon. Familiar names? If something like that was once installed on your computer or opened in the Internet, you have dealt with Adware. Adware are programs that do not perform any useful function but designed to advertise. These are programs that are "encoded" in the browser or the system and begin to rotate ads on your computer. Though they do not bring real harm to your computer, they make it difficult to work on the Internet, make it less comfortable. Settings of your home page and search engines may be reset and some unwanted websites with a lot of ads can be opened instead.
When the toolbar is out of control.
Indeed, there are many dangers just waiting for you in the Internet. They threaten not only the security of your computer but also the safety of your personal data. And although there are cases where virus infection occurs independently of any user (for example, due to vulnerabilities in browser), the user himself often helps attackers to get to his computer. So, what do you need to do to protect yourself and your computer?
