Computer Security Tips

Malware is easily distributed. Here is some valuable information about how to defend yourself:

  • Microsoft ended support for Windows XP on April 8th, 2014! Windows XP computers are extremely vulnerable to exploits used by hackers. Upgrade your operating system from Windows XP to Windows 7 or 8.1 to be vigilant against hackers and viruses.
  • Use a complete anti-virus solution such as Microsoft Security Essentials (Support ended with Windows XP) avast 2014!, AVG Free Antivirus, or Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014.
  • Update your anti-virus program daily. This happens automatically unless you use an anti-virus program that is not free and the license expires. The bad guys update their code daily, so you need to as well.
  • Get and install the latest updates for ALL of your computer programs. Be proactive – this is really important.
  • Be vigilant. Bad guys will attempt to take advantage of your existing trusted relationships (such as the relationship you might have with a company like Microsoft).
  • Be aware that these types of attack are prevalent and dangerous and that attackers will try to take advantage of you, your computer and your assets. Use caution online.
