Tips To Keep Your Computer Safe
Below are a list of tips on how to keep your computer safe.
- Use Your Common Sense
Make sure that you are downloading software and files from trusted website instead of any website. Remember NOT to open email or attachment that doesn’t look right to you, especially the funny link in the email.
- Use A Safe Web Browser
After all, prevention is better than cure. Research shows that Internet explorer is more prone and vulnerable to attacks from hackers than any other web browser. Try using Firefox or Google Chrome.
- Use A Good Internet Security Program
Try ESET Smart Security or AVG Internet Security as they are more safe and don’t slow your computer down. Do a virus scan on the files you downloaded from the Internet before you open or run it. Always scan your computer once a week and make sure your anti-virus is up to date. Contact us to find out the cost of the Anti-Virus programmes.
