A couple of things to be wary of until you successfully Palikan Search Virus
Adware viruses like Palikan Search Virus rarely do any direct harm to the computers they infected. Some of them are pretty harmless and only display annoying Ads, but there are also many who serve as “droppers” for other viruses and also as distributors of phishing or bloatware scams.
In either case your best course of action is to simply ignore any message or advertisement Palikan Search Virus throws your way. Be careful as the Ads can get very creative and try to appear as system related messages in an effort to convince you of the existence of some problem that needs to be resolved. If you are seeing pop-ups or banners about
- missing plug-ins
- needed updates for Java, Flash
- required codecs or video players in order to be able to view online media
- “free online scans” that report virus installation, registry errors or other
then you know that the virus is trying to run a scam on you. NEVER download and install anything prompted to you by Palikan Search Virus. If you believe that you might really need the plug-in or that Java update then you should go to the official site that distributes the update and download it from there.
The straight up Ads are not safe either. What might seem like a legit promotion on an online store you frequently visit can actually be a phishing attempt going for your log-in information. The link from the Ad takes you to a site that looks exactly like the site you are used to visit, but the URL will be slightly the same. If you try to log-in into this fake site you account name and password will be recorded and the hackers can use it later to log-in to the real site and make purchases in your name from there.
Some threats reinstall themselves if you don't delete their core files. We recommend downloading SpyHunter to remove harmful programs for you. This may save you hours and ensure you don't harm your system by deleting the wrong files.
