COMPUTER SAFETY with COMPUTER INTERNET SECURITY

THE QUESTIONS AND THE ANSWERS

A handful of Questions.

  • Who needs Computer Internet Security... do I?
  • who really needs protection for their computer...do you?
  • Do you really need to worry if you have dail-up and not broadband...?
  • Are you at risk if you only surf the internet a few hours a week?
  • Are you at risk if you just open e-mail from family and friends?
  • But you just have a quick question on which type of hinge to use!

Just some of the Answers to put you in the picture.

  • If you have a connection ANY connection to the internet you are vulnerable if you do not have a form of computer internet security installed, you will get no warnings.

  • If you are on an in-house network connection with a computer and that computer has internet connection you also need computer security protection.

  • If you have dail-up and not broadband... you ARE still at risk - just the same, if information can get to you through your internet connection, albeit at a slower rate than broadband - you can bet those worms can also wriggle down the line and reach the inner workings of your computer and over time mess it all up.

  • When you surf the net you often come across some nice special offer that you can download free or test at home, sometimes unfortunately these can be impregnated with a virus, unbeknown to the people offering the download.

    You probably wouldn't find out until things started to go wrong and by then you may have passed the virus on yourself countless times.

  • If you receive e-mail from family and friends who do not have computer internet security they could easily be passing a virus onto you without knowing.

  • If you are in anyway connected to the internet without computer internet security installed then you could already be in trouble and your going to have to clean up - fortunately the best software cleans and protects when you install.

I know that it sounds really bad, and in truth it is, as long as you don't have something to protect your computer, as long as you don't have computer internet security - you are an easy target.

What are we protecting here! well, for example when I protect my computer I am also protecting by business and as one thing pays for the other - by doing so I am protecting my homelife and my home, as well as paying towards my home improvement projects.

Yup, computers have become so important and will become even more so in the future so we have to be responsible in how we use them and by protecting ourselves we are also protecting any other computer we link to via internet or messaging.

Unfortunately, new viruses are frequently being unleashed on a vast amount of internet surfers without them even realizing, and they in turn pass the virus on to other computers with innocent e-mail messages, hence the name virus, they spread quickly and hide away in then eat away at systems that do not have protection.

BE AWARE AND SURF WITH CARE

The two really big names are McAfee's VirusScan and the Norton Antivirus Program. Remember, which ever program you choose, to get your regular updates and to keep scanning your system for viruses that may have slipped through.

That's why award-winning McAfee VirusScan-trusted by millions worldwide-automatically scans your email, attachments, shared disks and downloads, then immediately starts to clean or quarantine infections.

For example McAfee VirusScan automatically checks for virus updates* whenever you connect to the Internet, so your protection stays up-to-date against the latest threats, including spyware.
