Be Safe and Secure
It'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.
Some 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.
