Stop Computer Viruses, Spyware and Hacker Attacks

by Kwan H Lo


New computer viruses, spyware and hacker attacks are coming out every day. Be a smart consumer, know the difference of these security threats and choose the software carefully.


The number of computer viruses, spyware and hacker attacks is increasing at enormous speed every year. These security problems can cause mild to severe damage to the computer, including system crash, loss or corruption of files, bank and identity theft. Nevertheless, many PC users still overlook the importance of antivirus, antispyware and firewall software. To protect your PC, consumers are advised to follow these simple steps:

1) Educate yourself about the nature of computer viruses, hackers and spyware, choose the software program suitable for your need.

Computer viruses, hackers and spyware are different security threats. Each of them requires dedicated software for its own purpose. For example, an antivirus program detects and removes computer viruses, but it cannot detect most of the spyware programs which are usually bundled with free download, nor can it block hacker attack. Likewise, a personal firewall cannot protect the computer from viruses and spyware.

2) Renew the license of your antivirus, firewall and antispyware software annually. New computer viruses and spyware can escape the detection of outdated database. Update the software weekly for full protection.

3) Select the antivirus, firewall and antispyware software carefully. Do not download or run any free scans unless you have conducted thorough research on the software publishers.

There are many reports that some free downloads installed hidden applications to the computer. Others used outdated database for scanning. Using these antivirus and antispyware software can damage your computer system, create security holes and provide a false sense of security. Buy only from reputable software publishers, such as Symantec, McAfee, Trend Micro, Zone Labs, Webroot, PC Tools.
