The internet is one source where your computer becomes vulnerable to viruses and spyware. So it is not just enough if you have your anti-virus software installed on your system. To protect yourself while you are surfing the internet, it is a good idea to develop some good browsing habits. Here are some of the things you should do to safeguard your network and your computer:

*Pay attention to what you download or run. Try to download material only from websites you feel can be trusted.

*Don’t open e-mails from people you do not know.

*Never open attachments in strange messages or formats from people you do not know.

*Always log out of your e-mail programs instead of just closing your browser.

*Clear your history files (like cookies, internet history and temporary files, etc.), logs and personal files

*Remember to backup your files periodically.

*Disable your internet connection whenever you do not need it.

*Use a spam filtering system in your e-mail account to take care of any harmful e-mail that may come in.

*Use a spyware filtering program to block spyware.

*Create a separate e-mail account for operations prone to problems like mailing lists and registering on web sites. Get a separate email account for personal email.

*Keep updating your system to the latest security patches introduced by Windows.

*Password-protect your work especially when other people have access to your computer.

*Enable firewalls to safeguard your system.

Love to hear what you think! Thanks Would make us Smile :)
