Setting Up Your AntiVirus Software

Written by Richard Lowe

Continued from page 1

But wait, if you have your antivirus program running won't it catch and stop any viruses that you happen to open? Yes it will, but you could still copy it to someone else, or another person could grab it overrepparttar network (if you are in a company, for example). Or perhaps for some reason you turn off your antivirus program, then you could accidentally open it up and destroy your system.

Scanning for viruses in scripts on web pages

Believe it or not, you can catch a virus from a web page. All you have to do is viewrepparttar 132041 page and bang, you are infected. There are not many of these yet, but you can bet there will be inrepparttar 132042 near future. These are particularly nasty because, well, you don't have a choice about executingrepparttar 132043 virus.

These are not likerepparttar 132044 email viruses, which require you to actually open an attachment. They are not like other viruses, which require you to execute a file. These simply require you to view them. Pretty scary, if you ask me.

Thus, as you can see, it's very important to keep this feature enabled at all times. That way you will catch and destroy these things before you get hurt.

Regular updates

Be sure to subscribe to and userepparttar 132045 regular virus updates. You see, new viruses are found all ofrepparttar 132046 time, and if you don't update your definitions you will be vulnerable. In fact, after a few months of no updates your antivirus software becomes virtually worthless.


The features of your antivirus software are put there for a reason. My advice is to enable everything. Turn it all on. These days you cannot be too careful - or, if you prefer, you can disable something and perhaps lose your data. It's your choice.
