How to Protect Your PC From Searchtopresults.com and Other Adware:

  • Get a powerful antivirus or anti-malware software that can detect and remove not only viruses, trojans, spyware, etc., but also adware and PUPs (potentially unwanted programs). Or get a separate anti-malware tool (for example, AdwCleaner) in addition to your antivirus and run it every week or two.
  • Keep your operating system, browsers and antivirus up to date. Cybercriminals always search for new browser and operating system vulnerabilities to exploit and sometimes find them. If a vulnerability is made public, software creators will usually release an update soon to patch the vulnerability. If a program stops getting updates, it can become a gateway for malware (like Internet Explorer: you can get malware just by visiting some rogue site on that browser). As for antiviruses, their creators are always on the lookup for new malware samples, which are then added to antiviruses’ databases. That is why it is important to keep your antivirus up to date.
  • Download and use a good ad-blocking browser extension: uBlock Origin, Adguard, or Adblock Plus. Before downloading make sure the extension is a real deal and not an imitator with a similar name. Those are often adware themselves.
  • Don’t click on links blindly and don’t open attachments in spam emails.
  • Don’t download software from shady websites. You can easily download a trojan (malware that pretends to be a useful application); or some unwanted program could get installed along with the app.
  • When installing free programs, don’t rush through the process. Select Custom or Advanced installation mode if possible, look for checkboxes that ask for your permission to install third-party apps and remove those check marks. Read End User License Agreement to make sure that extra software is not going to get installed and browser settings are not going to get changed.
  • If you use remote desktop software on your computer, select a long, strong password.
  • Get a good firewall for your computer or at least turn on the inbuilt one.
