Make sure you always update your operating system and any installed software on your computer. The latest updates are generally available on the manufacturers web site. For instance; to update Microsoft products, go to http://update.microsoft.com. Some operating systems and software have the update feature available from within the software itself. Check with your manufacturer for the specific updating procedure.
Updates generally fix bugs that were found later on after the software was released. If you are experiencing a glitch or error message, sometimes the simple solution is to install an update. In addition, updates patch any potential security weaknesses. For instance, Microsoft regularly releases updates to patch any recently discovered security “holes” which could allow a hacker or malicious software to attack and infect your system.
Keeping your computer up-to-date, running a updated anti virus software, and practicing safe internet browsing habits will help keep your experience with your system a pleasant one. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
Recently, we have been receiving quite a few calls to remove a spyware infection called Internet Security 2010. While this type of software is not new to us, it seems like it is getting much easier for computer users to get infected. Now, even more so, you need to make sure your computers are protected with the latest Antivirus software and kept up to date. You also need to practice safe browsing habits. Never install or click on a program that claims to have found “x” number of infections on your computer. Avoid downloading “free” type of software such as screensavers, games, etc., as many of these programs are bundled with malware that can infect your computer.
If you happen to get infected with a virus, spyware, etc, do not purchase anything that is suggested. For instance, Internet Security 2010 will prompt you to “Purchase Now” to remove the infections for $49.97. This is a scam and will not fix your computer. The best advice we can give, if you do not feel comfortable cleaning up the virus, is to call us as soon as possible. We have years of experience cleaning up these type of problems and will get it done right. Call 732-681-2360 or visit us at www.monmouthcomputer.com to submit a service request.
