Everyone knows that starting with a fresh computer is the best part of having a system. This is the time it runs the fastest, the smoothest and is untouched by terrible things like a virus. But every once in a while, there may be an ad that appears indicating that a download is necessary to scan the system. This scan can lead a person to believe that there are issues with their existing system, or there may be if they do not perform this task. For many people, these may seem like reliable and trustworthy sources and sites, so they do not question whether or not a download should occur.

However, this is the worst part of all. Considering that in reality, it is literally and virtually unknown where the download is coming from, the challenge then becomes where the user should put something on their own system. Many of us have been fooled by something that looks genuinely sincere and correct. It may appear to come from our own bank or a friend, but in fact, it is a virus.

This virus will create constant pop-ups that require restarts or will flash with a number of issues identified. Leading to many frustrating hours of closing the program or being annoyed with a reminder that something is wrong when you are unsure of how to fix it or where the issue came from.

The problem lies in many of the background processes. In many cases, these pop-up items are downloaded unbeknownst to the person who has even gone through and unselected the portion that indicates to download it. Downloading it anyway. This is a frustrating process and it was usually not even on purpose. However, there is a way to clean the system. This process requires some work and some trust in the process, but it can and does work. The other aspect to consider is that the process of clearing the Advanced Mac Cleaner needs to be double checked to ensure the entire virus and scanner has been removed from the system.

Using the uninstaller above is the best route to take. This will minimize the frustration, but it will also remind the user to be cautious what they download and from where. This should be a reminder that items downloaded from the internet should be viewed with caution, regardless of the source. Today, we are frequently online and produce a digital footprint regardless of where we go. Our information is shared via wifi when we login to a company service and we leave ourselves exposed to anything that the internet has to offer when we download products from it.

Even reliable and credible sources need to be viewed with care and an eye of caution. Unless you have developed the product, it is better to not download it. In truth, if everyone treated their own home computers like a work computer for the government, there would be much less virus sharing and downloads occurring.
