BEST PRACTICES FOR AVOIDING COMPUTER VIRUSES
To have a fighting chance against today's rampant security threats, end users have to be informed and proactive. Here are some practical guidelines they can follow to minimize the risk of infection and attack. IT professionals must encourage their users to follow several security practices to minimize virus, spyware, and malware exposure.
These are three ways to help you stay virus free.
Install quality antivirus
Many computer users believe free antivirus applications, such as those included with an Internet service provider's bundle service offering, are sufficient to protect a computer from virus or spyware infection. However, such free anti-malware programs typically don't provide adequate protection from the ever-growing list of threats.
Instead, all Windows users should install professional, business-grade antivirus software on their PCs. Pro-grade antivirus programs update more frequently throughout the day, protect a wider range of threats, and enable additional protective features, such as custom scans.
2. Don't click on email links or attachments
It's a mantra most every Windows user has heard repeatedly: Don't click on email links or attachments. Yet users frequently fail to heed the warning.
Simply clicking on an email link or attachment can, within minutes, corrupt Windows, infect other machines, and destroy critical data.
Users should never click on email attachments without at least scanning them for viruses using a business-class anti-malware application. As for clicking links users should access Web sites by opening a browser and manually navigating to the sites in question.
3. Disable Auto-run
Many viruses work by attaching themselves to a drive and automatically installing themselves on any other media connected system. As a result, connecting any network drives, external hard disk, or even thumb drives to a system can result in the automatic propagation of such threats.
Computer users can disable the Windows auto-run feature by following Microsoft's recommendations, which differ by operating systems.
