Malware Causes Popup Ads
While popups are a lot less common than they used to be (due to built-in popup blockers in most modern browsers) they can still occur depending upon what you are doing on the internet. Malware can cause the victim to be bombarded with popups and advertisements, some of which may be for legitimate products while others are simply websites attempting to place more malware on your computer.
Malware Causes Your Browser To Keep Getting Redirected
Not all redirects on the internet are malicious, however, if you are trying to reach a website you frequently visit and keep ending up on an unfamiliar site, you probably have malware. Sometimes these redirects are highly noticeable, others may direct you to a version of the website you are trying to visit that is intended to cause harm to your computer or even bank account. Pay close attention to the URL in the address bar. Browser extensions can often cause problems with this as well.
Malware Causes Mysterious Social Media Posts
Have you seen strange posts from your friends about sunglasses or models in Russia? Chances are they have been affected by malware that affects social media. Interacting with these posts or messages can actually result in you becoming infected as well.
Malware Can Disable System Tools
