Protecting a PC, Is That Really Easy?

Computer Security and Protection

Yes, Protecting PC is really so much easy that we need some idea about computers and most importantly the knowledge to use our basic common sense. Wonder if your computer has got infected by a virus how do you resolve the issue? Its quiet simple you just go download an Antivirus Software and then scan the computer and quarantine the virus.

But wonder if that did not work out, what you are going to do? The answer is you will seek the help of someone. But my advice is that before you seek the help of someone, you yourself can try checking out what are the miscellaneous activities that have taken place in the computer, and then find the file and delete it or else,

If you feel that you don't have enough knowledge of how to delete the file, just try sending the file to your antivirus software developer using some option such as "Submit your File for Analysis".  If you still got the problems, then try the virus removal process. BUT BE SURE YOU DON'T DELETE THE WRONG FILE or DLL.

The above paragraph is about the case if your system is infected. But on daily basis new worms, viruses, Trojans, spyware etc are developed, how are you going to prevent from these kinds of future security threats?  Yes, you can prevent and protect yourself from such kind of new internet security threats by installing an Antivirus or Internet Security Suite software, which has got an automatic updating feature in it. So what happens is that the company from where you purchased the software, would be detecting new viruses or worms and write a program i.e. Virus signature which prevents the those viruses from entering your computer, and also if you system got infected before the signature got updated, once the signature gets updated, it would quarantine the virus. So it's always good that we have updated internet security software in our computer.

General security that needs to be checked while you are online also include online financial / banking security, it's always good you check if a valid SSL certificate is being installed in the online banking webpage so that you can trust the website and provide your confidential banking information. And it's also good to use a Secure Instant Messenger and more over  don't disclose your personal details while you are in general chat rooms or over web messenger.

If you check and have these basic things in your computer, isn't it that simple you protect your PC and safeguard yourselves.
