Keep your computer in top performance
Computers can contract many different problems from all kinds of contact. It is best to avoid unnecessary contact with other disks, USB drives, computers, websites and especially shared services like music and video download sites and programs. If it is free or very low priced, be very careful, It is probably a trap to infect your computer.
Make Sure you have the latest operating system, Antivirus program, Advertising, Spyware, and Malware software protection scanning and blocking is helpful but the best defense is to avoid the problem in the beginning.
PLEASE don't forget to do the DAILY updates and drive scans at least once a week.
We are getting lots of requests to check out programs and websites to see if they are safe! Please understand that it can take many hours of work to check out a single program or website. If the programmer ,webmaster or invasions from other sources makes changes after the inspection, our efforts are wasted and we must start all over. If you want us to check out a website or program a charge for our time will be made. The following is only a short list of the items to avoid. Basically, if it is free or very low priced, be very careful, as programmers and websites must make money somehow, (by means that are good or bad!!).
