My technical life, day by day.

Just another WordPress.com weblog

No body likes to be sick, and your computer doesn’t either. Just like you take precautions to avoid getting sick, you should do the same to keep your computer virus free. Below are some tips to do just that, its pretty simple to stay away from viruses if you use some common sense.

  • NEVER open spam email. NEVER. If you don’t know who its from, don’t open it.
  • Scan every email you want to open, I don’t care if its from the President, just do it.
  • Keep your anti-virus software up to date, its worthless if its not.
  • Back up your data regularly. Just in case you do get one, your not up the creek with out a paddle.
  • If you do not recognize the file extension of the attachment in an email, delete it. Best to play it safe.
  • Never click on pop ups unless its a pop up you expected. If its an ad for something, don’t click it.
  • Do not download programs that come from any kind of pop up. If you want the program go to the vendors site directly.
  • Keep your operating system up to date. Turn on automatic updates.

Keep these things in mind while you browse the net and open email. It will help you stay clear of viruses and other pests.
