    Post Steps to keep your computer secure

    Follow these steps in order to keep your computer clean, secure, and running efficiently.

    Install Antispy - Search and Destroy - Download install Antispy(yahoo prefareble) - Search and Destroy them. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    Commercial Spyware Removal/Protection Programs - If you feel more comfortable installing a commercial Spyware removal program then we recommend WebRoot's Spysweeper or Lavasoft's Ad-Aware Professional. There are many commercial products on the market, but unfortunately most are misleading and substandard.

    Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    Click once on the Security tab
    Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    Click once on the Custom Level button.

    Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt

    Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable

    Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable

    Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt

    Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt

    Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt

    When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.

    If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.

    Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future. Watch out !!!!....Never forget to install a good firewall.

    Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

    Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. It's very serious and see it happen almost every day . Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

    Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.
