Basically, any malware presence within a system will cause the user’s browser to be hijacked, the search attempts to be redirected, while having to contend with unnecessary pop up adds and also the sites you visit tracked.
In most cases the malware is able to reactivate itself into the system, even though the user is thought to have eradiated its presence. This is mainly because the malware is able to embed itself deep into programs and is rather difficult to detect until it surfaces in the form of trouble for the user. However, it is possible to follow a variety of basic preventive measures to help remove the malware through a series of spyware removals. Other viruses, which are sometime categorized within the malware platform would include worms, Trojans and everything that generally attacks the software of the user.
The invasion by malware can take on several different forms, and these are usually hard to detect in the initial stages until considerable damage is done. Malware often comes hidden within other programs such as Kazaa, iMesh and other file sharing programs. The popular contribution of the malware would be to provide revenue for the pop up ads where income is generated when the user opens these. Others would include websites being presented under the disguise of being full of informative content, thus encouraging the user to open such files.
