Protect your PC against malicious software

You must have had to deal with malicious software in the past since you found this article. Indeed, we have all had to deal with malware, even though our well-paid anti-virus software was active. Anti-virus software is useful, but it can’t stop all kinds of malware, and therefore it won’t protect your PC from all external threats.

This isn’t something new as everyone knows that anti-virus has its limitations. There are other ways through which you can increase the protection of your PC and make it almost malware-proof. Some of these tricks require advanced knowledge of the PC and its options. If you don’t have the knowledge to set those defenses up, then seek assistance from people who are versatile with computers.

Basic anti-malware protection tips

Very few people install a firewall, and even fewer of those people utilize all of its options. The latest PCs come with a pre-installed firewall. People don’t touch it, and it stays dormant while performing its essential functions. This software is very versatile when it comes to protection from web-based malware. You can set it to block all types of data transfer from the Web. In that case, you will be the one that will have to authorize every data transfer, including cookies as well.

Installation of the anti-virus software is mandatory if you want to protect your PC. It does have its flaws, and it slows down the processing speed of the PC, but it provides excellent protection against certain malware.

Using complex passwords may be boring, but it does help with the security. You can find a lot of programs that crack passwords and the complexity of the password determines whether the program will be successful or not. A program like that will require around 20 hours to crack a simple password that contains a word or several numbers. But if you mix words and figures as well as capital letters then the program will take several days, or even a month to crack that password. No one is patient enough for that.

Some additional ways to protect your PC

Never use generic passwords that you get from the site. A skilled hacker can crack a password like that in less than an hour. Whenever you create an account on a site and share your personal data, be sure to change the password you are given. Use a complex password that has numbers and letters, capital letters and other signs.

Spam, both in emails and social networks, carries malicious malware. This malware may be a virus that will destroy your system, software that will slow down your computer or spyware that will transfer your personal data to someone else. Never open spam messages, no matter what they say.

The latest type of spam are the messages on social networks like Facebook. Those messages contain files that require unzipping. Once you do that, the malware is free to do anything with your system. Don’t touch those files. Whenever someone messages you something that looks suspicious, ask them about it. There is a good chance that they didn’t send it and that it is virus.
