PostSubject: How to prevent spyware   Mon May 20, 2013 12:56 am

Spyware and other unwanted software can

Invade your privacy

Bombard you with pop-up windows

Slow down your computer

Make your computer crash

Here are several ways you can help protect your computer against spyware and other unwanted software.

Step 1: Use a firewall
While most spyware and other unwanted software come bundled with other programs or originate from unscrupulous websites, a small amount of spyware can actually be placed on your computer remotely by hackers. Installing a firewall or using the firewall that's built into Windows Vista and Windows XP provides a helpful defense against these hackers.

To learn more about firewalls, read What is a firewall and get answers to your Frequently Asked Questions about firewalls.

Step 2: Update your software
Visit Microsoft Update to confirm that you have automatic updating turned on and that you've downloaded and installed all the latest critical and security updates.



Thanks
