Tips For Avoiding Viruses

computer without virusesHave you ever had a computer that got overloaded with viruses? They can become effectively useless. If you want to keep this from happening to you, you can do a few things to prevent it. Here, we’ve presented just a few basic tips for avoiding viruses on your computer.

Anti Spyware/Anti Virus:

If you want real protection from viruses, you might have to shell out a little extra cash. Free versions of these options don’t always offer the capabilities necessary to find and get rid of viruses.

Update:

You need to always ensure that you have the updated version of your anti spyware and anti virus applications. 

Daily Scans:

This adds another layer of protection against any viruses that might get through the automated scans.

Avoid E-mail Links:

If you have Windows, you’ve probably heard about doing this already. Don’t trust any e-mail link if you don’t know where it came from. Run a virus scan before opening e-mails up.

 

Keep all these in mind while using your computer, and chances will drastically decrease of getting a virus. If you need help with virus removal, Total Tech Care can help. To find out more about our services, please give us a call at (631) 517-0021.
