How to protect the computer?

90% of all malware on the Internet are really simple to uninstall, because they are not very smart. The most important complication is not the quality of malware but their quantity. So, each user have to understand not just how to delete viruses, but in the first place, how to avoid them. Here's a list of advices and if you'll listen to them, the results will be impressive.

  • E-mails are very frequently used to send malware. If you do not recognize the sender of an e-mail - you shouldn't open it. The e-mail attachments should be only opened with help of "sandbox" tools.
  • All propositions in the Web that promise you large benefit needs to be closely thought out before you accept it. The majority of them are harmless, designed to increase the rating of the website, where they are placed, but some of them are leading to true scam schemes that may make you face the financial losses.
  • The installation of any programs, and particularly the unpaid ones, should be closely revised. There will be lots of important info such as place of installation, the terms of agreement and other things. Some tools use a trick called "Partner installation" or "quick installation", which means that in addition to the needed file you get 2-3 useless ones. You should refuse such propositions, because malware use such method of distribution very often.

These advices are very easy, but each of them gives you a chance to prevent the contamination by hazardous software. Even if the application of the rules is making you feel inconvenient - you should understand: they are necessary to abide. Let your system be safe and fast, and if you encounter any difficulties - simply let us know in the comments.
