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.


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.
