HOW TO KEEP PC SAFE

How can you Keep  Pc safe.

After buying a good computer the first thing comes in mind is how to keep safe pc from hackers, virus and miscellaneous programs and nowadays we start fearing with these terms especially the new users  so I am writing  this page just to provide help to the newest computer user. As humans needs means of transport to move from new York to Washington  in the same way, virus, malware ,Trojans and other also need a means of transport to travel from one computer to another so  before writing more I want to explain some terms like-

  • Virus-A computer virus is an executable program, it can cause harm to your hard disk contents, or intervene in operation of your laptop or computer. In most cases, if a file that contains virus is executed or copied onto another computer, then the virus will travel to other computer By definition, a virus program is able to copy itself. and infect other computers.

  • Malware-Malware malicious software) consists of programming (code, scripts, active content, and other software) designed to disrupt or deny operation, gather information that leads to loss of privacy or exploitation, gain unauthorized access to system resources, and other abusive behavior.

  • Trojans- A Trojan is a dangerous program that masquerades as a benign application. Unlike viruses, Trojan horses do not make copy of themselves but they can be very destructive. One of the most dangerous types of Trojan horse is a program that claims to free your computer of viruses but instead introduces viruses onto your computer.

so I was telling you how virus travels . Pen-drive, Internet, removable drives (Disc, floppy, micro sd card  etc) are all the way by which virus can travel to your computer. so whenever you get a pen-drive or other removable drives first of all make a full scan .it is very important you can't trust on your friends pen drive .......other devices

  • Install a good antivirus software -  Mostly computer users get confused about which antivirus is good to use ; From my experience I would suggest you to install Avira antivir personal free edition  and if you want a paid antivirus you can go with Norton antivirus or Mcafee

Update your antivirus software regularly .Always turn on your antivirus software and make a full system scan for every 14 days sometimes users complaint that antivirus software making their pc slow so what's wrong in that antivirus software doing their job just to protect your files so it would be better to have ram 1 gb  and if  you don't want to buy Ram there are some other ways by which you can add ram to your computer visit 'How to make pc faster'

  • Install an Anti-Spyware Program - Just as you installed and use an antivirus program, it is essential these days to use a Spyware protection and removal program. These programs can be used to scan your computer for spyware, dialers, browser hijackers, and other programs that are malicious in nature. we recommend Malware Bytes' Anti-malware, Spybot - Search and Destroy, and Ad-Aware.

 

  • A firewall is a device or set of devices designed to permit or deny network transmissions based upon a set of rules and is frequently used to protect networks from unauthorized access while permitting legitimate communications to pass. in simple words I can say that firewall keep your pc safe from unauthorized connection. you don't need to install any firewall because windows 7 and xp both have preinstalled firewall. You can check yourself that you firewall is active or not  go to control panel then click on windows firewall  icon.

 

  • Virus-total is another kind of help full muti-scanner antivirus. it scan the given file by 40 antivirus moreover you don't need to install it .it is an online  antivirus scanner visit VirusTotal ,upload the file you wanted to scan .virus total give you a full scan result of the file very quickly (depending on your internet connection speed)

  • Don't open suspicious mail -4 year ago I received a mail of lottery from British bank they were asking to download the attachment form -as a nut I downloaded the file and quickly Norton antivirus reports me that file contained virus . so it would be better to avoid opening such kind of mails. so don't ever download any kind of attachment linked with mails

 

  • Excluding Norton and MacAfee no other antivirus gives the correct result of compressed files so whenever you are going to scan a compress file extract it on a folder and then make a scan . sometimes computer user thought that  files like mp3 flv wmv pdf doc and so on.... can never be infected with virus so they don't scan it . this is totally wrong nowadays hacker can use any kind of files to drop virus malware or Trojans.
