Be Safe and Secure

Virus SafeIt's unbelievable the way things are today; hackers get into peoples computers and steal information; identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America with millions of Americans affected; and computer viruses - malicious little programs that unscrupulous individuals create to cause havoc and destruction to people's computers and email systems. The good news is that it's very simple to help safe guard your information and help protect your computer from outside intruders. What is required is a good firewall and anti-virus and anti-spyware/malware software. Based on what and how you use your computer, I will recommend the protection that is right for you.

If you don't take precautions it is not a matter of if something will happen to your computer, it's a matter of when. If you're computer is not protected it is very vulnerable and must be protected Immediately!. The longer you wait the greater the chance that you're computer will be compromised which can lead to expensive repairs.

Virus Removal

Virus RemovalSome viruses are very destructive. Some will erase information from your computer. Some will even prevent you from starting up your computer. Some will make your computer run slow. Some will infect computers of people you have in your email address book . Others will disguise themselves as an anti-virus program which will pop up out of nowhere claiming that your computer has lots of infections.

If you have a virus or suspect that you do and you don't know how or have the means to remove the virus,  please call at once. You will be given prompt and immediate attention.

Spyware, Adware and Malware

Spyware, adware and malware are programs, much like a virus, that get downloaded into your computer when you visit certain websites or open an email attachment. They send back information that's in your computer to whomever you received them from. They can tell someone what websites you visit, record your keystrokes, steal your passwords, bank account numbers and other personal information. They can also change settings in your computer, take over your computer, and hide your files. Even worse, delete your files. These programs can add up over time and cause your computer to slow down. If you do not have any anti-spyware software in your computer there are many that you can be downloaded for free.

There are many anti-virus and anti-spyware programs available. Some you must pay and are subscription based. Others are free. Many of the free programs rank higher in their effectiveness to protect your computer than some of the paid counterparts. I have several free Internet security programs available for download on my free software page.

Please note that NO Internet security program is 100% affective. Not the free ones or the ones you pay for. The reason for this is that hundreds of new threats are created every month. Your Internet security program will not be able to check for these new threats until an update has been issued by them. So it's very possible that a virus or spyware program can infect your computer before your anti-virus and anti-spyware programs are aware of them. This is why it's necessary have these programs update themselves either automatically or manually on a regular bases.

It's also important that you do not have programs installed that hackers use to gain access to computers.
