Protect your computer from viruses and spyware
   
 

At one time or another, most of us have heard about viruses and spyware. A virus is a program that attempts to spread from one computer to another causing damage to the computer. Some viruses employ different kinds of deception; they may display unwanted messages or alter the information that is normally displayed on the screen. Spyware is software that displays advertisements (such as pop-up ads), or collects personal information. This might sound scary but by using a virus scanner and a firewall program you can considerably reduce the risk of viruses and spyware.

If you want to learn how to protect your computer, why not take a look at our computer book Protect, Clean Up and Speed Up Your Computer for SENIORS. This book will show you how to set up a firewall and how to use the antivirus program Microsoft Security Essentials. You will also learn how to manage privacy settings in Internet Explorer. We also discuss how to optimize Windows and how to clean up the hard drive. In short; this book is vital if you want to protect, clean up and speed up your computer.
