Be A Better Computer User

According to US nationally syndicated technology radio talk show host Leo Laporte…

"Every security expert says the only way to be sure you’ve gotten rid of it all (spyware and viruses) is to format the hard drive and reinstall Windows from a known, clean source, usually your Windows install CD. It is guaranteed that more (spyware and viruses) are on your system. Before you format, make sure you backup your data.

The anti-spyware and anti-virus programs will not protect you (completely), you have to protect yourself by changing your behavior. Don’t open email attachments or click links in email. Make sure you run Windows Update often. Don’t go to websites you aren’t sure are safe. Don’t download files you don’t know are safe (file sharing is a perfect example)."
