How to Ensure Virus Protection on My PC
For your system to have a better fighting chance against today’s incessant security threats, it has to be prepared. Here are some practical guidelines they can follow to minimize the risk of infection and attack.
Install Quality Antivirus
Many computer users believe free antivirus applications are sufficient to protect a computer from virus or spyware infection. Such free antivirus programs don’t provide required protection from the endless list of threats. Computer Repairs North Lakes will recommend top quality anti virus software.
Use Recent and Up to Date Anti-Malware Applications
Antivirus and anti-spyware software requires regular signature and database updates. Without these critical updates, anti-virus programs can’t protect PCs from the latest threats. End-users must keep their antivirus and anti-spyware software up to date. All Windows users must take measures ensuring that their anti-malware software stays current and continue to provide protection against the most recent threats.
Perform Daily Scans
Regularly, virus and spyware threats escape a system’s active protective engines and infect a system. In other cases, users may inadvertently instruct anti-virus software to allow a virus or spyware software to run without knowing.
Irrespective of the infection source, enable a complete daily scans of a system’s entire hard drive. These regular daily scans can be valuable in detecting, isolating, and removing infections that initially escape security software’s attention.
Viruses work by attaching themselves to a drive thereby installing themselves on any other media connected to the system. Connecting USB drive or external hard disks to a system can result in the automatic run of such threats.
Don’t Click On Email Links Or Attachments
Don’t click on unsolicited email links or attachments. This is very important, still, computer users constantly fail to heed the warning. A single click on an email link or attachment can corrupt Windows, infect other machines and destroy valuable data within seconds.
