October 24, 2008

A part of owning a computer is knowing how to keep it running like it did when you first brought it home, with just a hour a week you can keep your computer running like new, and even better.  The first and most important thing that you can have on your computer is a antivirus. Having a up to date antivirus is the first step to preventative maintenance. The next step is to run a anti spyware program that runs with your computer to keep your computer protected while you are browsing the web, which is the number one culprit of computers being infected, most of the time you don’t even know that your computer is being infected until it is too late. All that it takes is for you to go to a web site that appears to be legitimate but in actuality it is not and it installs malicious software on your computer. There are many different types of viruses, adware and spyware out there, lets start by discussing what exactly adware is and how if affects your computer.Adware is a small program that gets installed on your computer without your knowledge, once it is installed it generates pop up ads based on what you search for on the internet in hopes that you will click on a ad and ultimately purchase the product, which is benefiting the person who installed the adware on your machine in the first place. There are also many programs, in which are free that are bundled with adware, this is how they compensate for the cost associated with the free software.

Next lets discuss spyware, spyware is much more of a threat than adware is, spyware can take your personal information such as credit card numbers, bank account information, user names and passwords from your computer and send it to the attacker.  Spyware gets on your computer the same as adware.

Viruses are also a threat to your computer; there are many different types of viruses on the web as well. Some will erase your data from your computer, while some will propagate through your home on office network and infect other computers.

The best thing that you can do is to be proactive and keep your antivirus up to date and to perform preventative maintenance in your computer.
