Here are some Preventive tips to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future:
1. Browse more secure
- WOT - Know which websites to trust
Web of Trust - this free browser add on warns you about risky websites that try to scam visitors, deliver malware or send spam.
- Open Internet Explorer
- Click on Tools > Internet Options
- Press Security tab
- Select Internet zone then place check next to Enable Protected Mode if not already done
- Do the same for Local Intranet, Trusted Sites and Restricted Sites and then press Apply
- Restart Internet Explorer and in the bottom right corner of your screen you will see Protected Mode: On showing you it is enabled.
- Windows XP users can visit Windows update regularly to download and install any critical updates and service packs.
- Windows Vista / 7 users can update via
Start menu > All Programs > Windows Update > Check for Updates (in left hand task pane).
- If you think you're using a "safe" P2P program, only the program is safe, not the data.
- You will share files from unsafe sources, and these may be infected.
- Some bad guys use P2P filesharing as an important chanel to spread their wares.
Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.
7. Backup regularly
You never know when your PC will become unstable or become so infected that you can't recover it.
8. Use Strong passwords!
9. Email attachments
Do not open any unknown email attachments, which you received without asking for it!
Keep your Browser, Java, pdf Reader and Adobe Flash Up to Date.
Make sure your programs are up to date - because older versions may contain Security Leaks.
