Tips to Protect Your Computer From Viruses and Spyware

  1. Update your anti-virus protection. We recommend and use Kaspersky.

  2. Keep your Windows Operating System up-to-date with the latest service packs and security patches.

  3. Secure your wireless network.

  4. Don't click on any emails sent from your bank, credit card, etc... that ask you to visit their site, this is often times a scam. Instead, type in their known web address to access your account.

  5. Hover over email and web site links to make sure that they match where they say they are going

  6. Only visit reputable web sites. The same goes for downloading files.

  7. Don't open attachments from email addresses that you don't know.

  8. Create a user login on Windows that does not have administrative rights and use that everyday
