Please read the following information that I have provided, which will help

you prevent malicious software in the future. Please keep in mind, malware is

a continuous danger on the Internet. It is highly important to stay safe

while browsing, to prevent re-infection.

Software recommendations

Free Antivirus

*Microsoft Security

Essentials
: this is Microsoft's free antivirus/antispyware program. It

equips you with protection against viruses, spyware, trojans, rootkits, and

worms. It is also light on the computer's performance. Note: when installing

this, you have both an antivirus and antispyware. Make sure you also get a

firewall.
*AVG Free: this is one of the most

powerful, and easiest to use security software. The free version equips you

with protection against viruses, spyware, trojans, rootkits, worms, and

rogue software. Note: when installing this, you have both an antivirus and

antispyware. Make sure you also get a firewall.
* Avast!: This is an advanced malware

removal antivirus program. The free version equips you with protection

against viruses, spyware, trojans, rootkits, worms, and rogue software.
*Avira Antivir: this is an advanced

malware removal antivirus program. The free version equips you with

protection against viruses, spyware, trojans, rootkits, worms, and rogue

software.
*Rising Antivirus: this is a

lightweight, and great virus destroyer. It removes tough viruses, and even

rootkits and trojans get destroyed.



AntiSpyware


  • SpywareBlaster

    SpywareBlaster is a program that prevents spyware from installing on your

    computer. A tutorial on using SpywareBlaster may be found

    here.


  • Spybot - Search & Destroy
    .
    Spybot - Search & Destroy is a spyware and adware removal program. It also

    has realtime protection, TeaTimer to help safeguard your computer against

    spyware. (The link for Spybot - Search & Destroy contains a tutorial that will

    help you download, install, and begin using Spybot).


Anti Malware

*Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

* is a great malware removal program. It is recommended for anyone's

arsenal. There is a paid version, which is highly recommended, but the

program will work fully for free.

Firewall


*

Tallemu Online Armor
: The free version is just as good as the

premium. I have linked you to the free version.
* Comodo Firewall:

the free version is just as good as the premium. I have linked you to the free

version. The optional security suite enhances the firewall by 40% increase. If

you would like to install the suite that includes antivirus, then remove your

old antivirus first.
* PC Tools Firewall Plus: Free

and excellent firewall.

NOTE: Please keep ALL of these programs up-to-date and run

them whenever you suspect a problem to prevent malware problems.

Resident Protection help
A number of programs have resident protection and it is a good idea to run

the resident protection of one of each type of program to maintain

protection. However, it is important to run only one resident program

of each type since they can conflict and become less effective. That means

only one antivirus, firewall, and scanning anti-spyware program at a

time. Passive protectors such as SpywareBlaster can be run with any of

them.

Rogue programs help
There are a lot of rogue programs out there that want to scare you into giving

them your money and some malware actually claims to be security

programs. If you get a popup for a security program that you did not install

yourself, do NOT click on it and ask for help immediately. It is very important

to run an antivirus and firewall, but you can't always rely on reviews and ads

for information. Ask in a security forum that you trust if you are not sure. If

you are unsure and looking for anti-spyware programs, you can find out if it

is a rogue here:
Spyware Warrior: Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products & Web Sites

Securing your computer
  • Windows Updates - It is

    very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows

    are kept current with the latest critical security patches from

    Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools >

    Windows Update
    , and follow the online instructions from there.
  • http://**************** replaces your current

    HOSTS file with one containing well known ad sites and other bad sites. This

    prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them

    to 127.0.0.1, which is your local computer's loopback address, meaning it

    will be difficult to infect your computer in the future.


Please consider using an alternate browser
Mozilla's Firefox browser is a very good alternative. In addition to being

generally more secure than Internet Explorer, it has a very good built-in

popup blocker and add-ons, like NoScript, can make it even more secure.

Opera is another good option.

If you are interested:



Virtualization
Please consider using virtualization software to prevent permanent changes

to other programs and data in your computer. Some examples are below:

Application level virtualization (For regular users)

*Sandboxie-Sandboxie runs

your programs in an isolated space which prevents them from making

permanent changes to other programs and data in your computer.


Benefits of the Isolated Sandbox


* Secure Web Browsing: Running your Web browser under the protection

of Sandboxie means that all malicious software downloaded by the browser

is trapped in the sandbox and can be discarded trivially.

* Enhanced Privacy: Browsing history, cookies, and cached temporary

files collected while Web browsing stay in the sandbox and don't leak into

Windows.

* Secure E-mail: Viruses and other malicious software that might be hiding

in your email can't break out of the sandbox and can't infect your real

system.

* Windows Stays Lean: Prevent wear-and-tear in Windows by installing

software into an isolated sandbox.

System level virtualization (For advanced users)

*VirtualBox- VirtualBox is a powerful

x86 and AMD64/Intel64 virtualization product for enterprise as well as home

use. VirtualBox is an extremely feature rich and high performance product .

*

Wondershare Time Freeze
-Virtual system safeguards real system
# Easy switch between virtual system and real system: To enter virtual

system, you don't need to reboot computer; to return to real system, just

exit System Protection, and you can save or discard virtual system data

freely.
# Effective virtual system tool: Time Freeze creates a virtual environment as a

twin (copy) of the real system, on which you evaluate applications, watch

movies, and perform online activities. While the real system is under

protection, you no longer have to worry about viruses, spyware, malware

and other threats.
# MBR protection: Time Freeze 2.0.3 enhanced protection to the boot sector

of hard disk so as to guarantee the normal startup of system.


Happy surfing and stay clean!
