There are more thiefs in the cyber world than in real world. Most of you might be protecting your computer, if not please follow the steps. Since there are other software programmers here, please add on to my list.
1) Install a good virus software. Many are avialable in shops. But each of them has an UPGRADE option. Upgrade it at least weekly and run it in your computer DAILY . Some good virus program are
1) Trend Micro's ( can get from shop or can purchase over web)
* Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security
2) Norton - antivirus
3) McAfee Wirus scan
You computer should have one of these OR equivant of one this. It should be updated at least weekly and run it daily.
You should have a good Anti-spyware. These are very dangerous. It can give you pops advertisemtns and will spy our information in the computer like credit card number , bank info and other personal imformation. so having a good anti-spyware IS A MUST.
There are lots of them on the internet
sybot and adware are the most popular. they may not kill everything "worm" in your computer; but still best bet. Microsoft has a new one. Many say it is good. I have not used it yet. ALL THESE ARE FREE. All you have do is click on "download". It will take a couple of HOURS to install , get update and run. Do it when you have lot of time.
These people claim, then can remove ones not cleaned by above . TRY it.
update patchs on your computer from Microsoft.
Do this once in a month or so: ( atleast )
STEP 4: install a personal firwall. I am not sure how useful is this.
STEP 5 : update Internet Explorer
You can try this brower ( new one also )
see any of this help you ?
Do not download ANY Free stuff. like games or clock or screen savers
or anything like that. Nothing comes FREE. We know Adam and Eve received from free advice and what it cost them. :)
Backup , backup and backup - your stuff.
is this any helpful?
STEP 8: dont connect your computer to internet unless there is a need. Some keep it connected. There you have cable, or DSL where is an option in spyware program to "stop internet trafic " use it.
Anything else ? :)
