blackturbokitty Posted March 5, 2012 Share Posted March 5, 2012 It's surprisingly very easy to avoid viruses. These are some good points to keep in mind:1. Try to keep your operating system up to date as much as possible. You're just asking for trouble running a Windows OS that Microsoft no longer provides updates for. Windows XP and on does all of this for you if you remember to set to automatically download the updates.2. Run up to date viruse scanner from a reputable company. Leave it's real time shields enabled.3. Dont use Internet Explorer. It never was secure and never will be. Besides, things work better in pretty much every other browser and your safer from viruses. 4. Be careful what you install and if it seems very strange, dont use it. 5. Be careful what you click on. 6. Avoid porn, and sites providing torrents or warez as much as possible. 7. Facebook applications and games can be full of viruses, you should pretty much avoid most of those. They provide no value anyways. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
