Painless (and FREE) P.C. Protection

Viruses, Bugs, Worms, Dataminers, Spybots, and Trojan horses. The Internet is a veritable minefield of things that can invade your PC and affect it's Security and Performance.
You can do something about it and you can do it FREE, using some or all of the following programs and tips.

Anti-Virus protection.
One of the best Free programs for this is AntiVir Personal Edition Anti-Virus software. Download it from:
Install on your PC and leave it running to block any incoming bugs or viruses! It can also be used to scan your system for any previous invasions, but be patient, this takes about 15 minutes to complete. Worth running periodically, to check all is ok.

FireWalls and Broadband.
If you are on Broadband, consider using Firewall software. Most good ISP's now supply free. (eg AOL). If yours doesn't, you can get a reasonably good Free personal firewall system from 'ZoneAlarm' at http://www.zonelabs.com .
Tip ? DON'T leave your PC connected to the Internet when you are not using it! Reduce the chance of something loading while you are not monitoring things !

SpyBot finders and Ad blockers.

http://www.lavasoft.de for AD-Aware
http://www.safer-networking.org for SpyBot

Some General Tips
Get in the habit of , every time you disconnect from the web, deleting ALL files from the following folders:
C:/WINDOWS/Temporary Internet

Beware 'Boys Toys' and 'Freebies'! Think, if someone wants to spread a bug, get tracking software onto your PC etc, the best place for them to do it is places where you go to get 'freebies' to download! The above sites are normally 'ad free', but be aware that if you download porn, free music, free games, free software, there is often a 'price' to pay. Always use the above programs after visiting ANY of these sorts of sites!
