Tips To Make your Computer Secure

Tips To Make your Computer Secure

Here are some tips which will enable you to make 
your PC more secure.


1- Never, ever turn off the resident protection of your 
antivirus even if it 

decreases performance. Upgrade if necessary.

2-Keep your virus definitions up-to-date. Use the 
automatic update feature of 

your anti-virus and try not to ignore the "Do you want to update now" 

message however often it might pop up.

3-Even if you update regularly and you have not seen 
any suspicious activity 

on your PC, do a deep scan at least once a month.

4-Always create an emergency boot disk and keep it 
in a safe place.

5-Run a deep scan in safe mode at least once every 
two months to kill viruses 

that would otherwise remain hidden.


1- If you are unsure about the alert displayed by your 
firewall, try searching it 

on the internet.

2-A firewall is a powerful tool that requires an 
understanding of how the 

program works and exactly what it is doing and whether it is secure or not. 

Reading the help files is extremely important in 
successful configuration of 

your firewall.

3- If you are running a third party firewall,be sure to 
turn off the Windows 


4- You can temporarily disable a firewall by right clicking the icon in the tray. 

This is handy when you know a site is one you can trust but your firewall is 

blocking it. But remember to re-enable it as soon as possible.

5- Read firewall notices carefully when they pop up so that you don't let a bad 

thing in or prevent good traffic.


1-You should regularly check for updates. Enable the automatic update 


2-Remember to do a scan every now and then, or schedule scans if your 

program allows it. If you don't want to sit that long for scans to complete, use 

single folder for all your downloads, then scan only that folder, Windows 

installation folder and the Registry. Alternately, you can do a quick scan if 

your program allows it.


1-. Be patient with anti-spam software, it will get better over time.

2- Even if it looks that your anti-spam software is working great, periodically 

check the 'Spam' folder for good mail. None of the anti-spam software is 

perfect right now.

3-Don't give your anti-spam software too much rules, because it will not learn 

anything then. It is better if it learns on its own.
