Computer & Internet security tips

Computer security tips need to be understood by every one who has or uses a computer system.
We cannot stop being attacked since the growth in technology and computer literacy is high. These guys make use of some tools we hardly know its uses on the internet. The best thing to do is to ensure you get the most secured software provided by computer security companies. Or else, learn how to fight back.

Making sure your computer is secured is one thing every computer owner should be interested in. My recommendations here would be Norton, avast or AVG software programs. Even though there are many good antivirus software out there. These software programs have anti-spyware scanning and firewalls and anti-virus scanning technology. I recommend these ones because, I have used them. Get them on your pc and never leave them off. always update them so that new programme can be updated on your PC to fight with virus or spyware.

Also, get software that would monitor your pc especially laptops software like, laptop cop . It can be used for many things, like deleting files in the stolen laptop and more.

Anti Virus software makes sure, no virus is downloaded on your pc. If there is any virus, it raises an alarm.

Avoid spywares because they cant be easily removed once installed and also can steal some information or cause a breach in privacy.

A firewall wall software is a must have software because it doesn’t easily allow external computers to have access to your files.

Always lock up your pc with a password. This would stop all unauthorized access since information can be obtained directly from your pc.

Always backup your data to avoid being a victim of hard disk crash.

You can also Increase Computer Speed And Stability By Removing Corrupted Registry Files With Ccleaner.
