The latest version of AhnLab engine provides the signatures of newly found malwares which are essential for detecting all existing malwares. The engine update is usually made once a day. Please check if the engine has been updated to the latest version to prevent damages from newly emerged malwares.

Adware (advertisement programs), is a malicious code that misuses BHO (Browser Helper Objects) to change the start page or trigger pop-up advertisement windows. To prevent this you should not use “Enable third-party browser extensions” option on the setting panel.
How to opt out “Enable third-party browser extensions”
Check for Windows security patches.
A system that has a weak Windows login password or has not installed the security patches will be needlessly exposed to malicious codes or hacking attacks. Not only that, but even if the malicious codes are deleted using a vaccine loaded with the latest engine, the malicious codes can attack system vulnerabilities again to re-infect and damage the system. Therefore, in order not to be infected with malicious codes spreading through vulnerabilities in the system, please make sure that the latest security patches are applied, and that the password for the Windows login account cannot easily be discovered.
1. Password Settings for the Windows Login Account (Windows 7)
2. Apply Security Patches using Windows Update
Repair the entire system in safety mode.
Some malicious codes must be repaired in safety mode because many execution files may be infected, and some of them have self-protection features. If they cannot be repaired entirely, even with the latest version of the engine, it is recommended that you boot the system in “Safety Mode (Use Network)” and scan/repair viruses.
This does not apply to customers who are using MyV3 or Spyzero ASP in Windows 98 or Windows ME.
How to Boot the System in Safety Mode
For reference, if the “Safety Mode” option is selected, Windows will start using only those drivers necessary for loading minimal devic drivers and services.
