How to prevent malware
Hello, today I have received too many calls from my relatives who are not so technology-savvy asking me to fix their bloody computers. Thing is, I don’t have time to do this anymore. So, in this post I am sharing some tips on how to keep malware and visruses away!
First of all, you should not download from unknown and untrusted sources. Sites like torrents or the ones where you try to download something or retreive activation code for certain software usually have viruses, spyware and malware. On my business laptop, I never use such sites. And I don’t have any other computer 😉
Next thing I would suggest is to install some sort of anti-malware software such as Malware-Bytes Anti-Malware. I believe I blogged about it before. You don’t have to pay for it, free version is just fine, it will keep scanning your computer in the background every day or once a week or month, depending on the options. It will also keep blocking all the dodgy connections which will automatically prevent from new viruses.
So I hope that you learned something new today to keep the malware and viruses away.
