Computer Protection Programmes
Working on the Internet from a home computer, it is primarily necessary to protect against viruses and computer attacks. To protect against viruses, a good antivirus programme must be established and its database updated at least once a week. What program? AntiViral Toolkit Pro, DrWeb, McAFEE or other?
In addition, there is a need for strict prevention rules:
- Before you launch the program (yes and any file) on the diskette, flash drive or CD, check it on the viruses.
- Never keep passwords for Internet access in remote access properties and call programmes. Introduce them manually directly in connection. I recommend that complex passwords be developed with this password generator.
- The file, downloaded from the Internet or e-mailed, will first be stored on a hard drive and check on the viruses. If you didn't order this file, remove it without checking.
- Practical advice on Outlook Express
Most anti-virus programmes can continuously monitor all programmes and launchable files, as does AVP the Casperian Laboratory Monitor. In this case, even if you accidentally forget to check the file on the virus, and it turns out to be infected, the AVP Monitor is blocking this file and won't let it go (this does not apply to self-propelled E-mail viruses).
Let's do a little competition for antivirus programmes... Only those programmes I had the opportunity to test at work were involved in my personal competition. DrWeb took the first place; second place was Norton AntiVirus. AVP Casperian. For a more precise location, look at the results of the active infection test and the current antivirus rating♪
