Default 10 Steps To A Safe, Smooth Running PC

Here are some steps to keeping your computer security safe.

"Next to spam, spyware is the internet's biggest annoyance. By definition, spyware is "any software that covertly gathers user information through the user's Internet connection without his or her knowledge, usually for advertising purposes. Once installed, the spyware monitors user activity on the Internet and transmits that information in the background to someone else. Spyware can also gather information about e-mail addresses and even passwords and credit card numbers." The amount of spyware that exists on your pc is dependent on the amount of internet surfing you do. A good rule of thumb here is to scan for spyware once per week or whenever poor system performance surfaces."

Spyware and malware are the worst, because they slow the entire system down and can be acquired easily through the frequent use of Internet. Good thing there are lots of programs nowadays created especially for these.

If it is heavy, just breath!

Great share! Don't always depend on the report of your internet protection. It is still best to do manual scanning for spyware to make sure you're really protected.

I especially couldn't get along without RoboForm password manager as you mention in your article. I use RoboForm2Go (runs from USB drive) so you can also be protected on any computer you use.
