Six Steps to Get and Keep Your Computer Running at Full Speed

Viruses are everywhere. They run ramped across the internet and your computer just might be a virtual playground for these computer bugs. But it simply does not have to be that way. There are certain measures you can take that will stop almost all viruses, trojans, spyware, adware, and worms dead in their tracks. In fact if your computer is running slower than when you first got it, you should start practicing what I am going to tell you about immediately.

You can catch these nasties by simply checking your email or downloading a program from an unreliable source. All viruses and things like them are man made and there are several reasons why people make viruses. Most of the times though the creator does it simply to be destructive or build a reputation in the virus making or hacking community.

If these people would take that energy they put into being jerks they could be putting that energy into making product and selling it. Hell if you are going to do a bunch of work for nothing at least make it so people enjoy your work instead of making everyone hate you.

Below is a simple six step plan to protecting your computer from these harmful nasties. If you follow it religiously you should not have problems with this kind of garbage again. But if you fail to do so you are just opening a window of opportunity for something to happen.

Following these steps may not get rid of every thing that you have accumulated up until now though, so it is best to start with a clean install of Windows to assure that your system is clean to begin with. However these steps should stop any further viruses and like things get into your computer.

Six Steps too Protecting Your Computer:

1. Update your Operating System Regularly:

The first step to protecting your PC and your valuable data is to ensure that the operating system (OS) is updated with the latest security patches. This is critical as OS manufacturers such as Microsoft Windows update security features of their products continuously to cover any potential and actual loopholes.

To check whether you have the latest update, click on the Start Menu | All Programs and select the Windows Update icon. Windows will take you to their update web page. From there just click on the appropriate button to download and install and required updates. We usually advise that this be done at least once every two weeks.

2. Buy Good Anti-Virus Software:

Secondly you should have an updated anti-virus software running on your system. Make sure to choose one of the better ones on the market today - a few dollars won't break you but malware will. I use and recommend Macro Virus. It is also a spyware / adware removal tool and a pop up blocker all in one. They come out with frequent updates and have proved to one of the best I have found. You can check it out and use there free scan at macrovirus on-call.

Another great online virus scan to use is Trend Micro's House Call. You can use their free scan at House Call.
