Is your computer malfunctioning due to viruses? Most of the computer users experience the save quite often. To protect your PC from a virus attack, you should understand exactly what a virus is. Computer virus is a software program which is designed with malicious intentions. It is not very difficult to keep your computer running like a brand new-one with the regular maintenance and updation of your anti virus software from time to time. It is basically spread via internet. In this article we have discussed about some of the best ways to protect your computer from viruses and spyware.
  • For better computer protection, you should use an Internet firewall. Operating systems like Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP with SP2 comprise built-in firewall and this is turned on by default. Check whether it is on or not. If not, turn it on.

  • You should also update the operating system regularly as Microsoft releases updates to protect the users from virus attack. Have you installed the most recent version of Microsoft Office? Your Microsoft Office programs will also be updated by Microsoft Update.

  • It is a must to install an antivirus software program and update it regularly. AVG, Avast, Norton, Macafee, etc. are some of the most renowned names in this regard. You can start with the trial version and if you find it satisfactory, then go for the paid version.

  • It is also suggested not to open an e-mail attachment from an unknown source. In most of the cases, these attachments contain viruses and spyware. You should also use strong passwords to protect your computer from unwanted access.

  1. People always want good anti virus for their computer and laptop. If your problem involves software, hardware or service brands, most reps will pass the buck. Then you start again. Add to the mix some manufacturers charge for support. IT support is the way to keep all of your tech in tune through a subscription-based tech support center.

  6. I remember the times when I get these viruses that restrict you from connecting to the Internet. I never get those kinds of problems fixed by myself. Good thing I know someone from Markham computer service center. They don't just help you with problems with viruses. They can also give you network support. Toronto has a lot of these great service centers. Without them, I wouldn't have fixed my computer.straverb

  33. Great, I will follow all these points you have mentioned to protect my computer from any virus. The most common issue people face with their computers is that they run slowly, and the internet speed isn't good, or doesn't work at all. So, you need to purchase some RAM or other types of memory from a computer parts and accessories store online, and install it into your computer.
