Spyware, Viruses, Adware And Scams! Do You Know How To Protect Yourself?

Apr 12, 2008
Are you new to the World Wide Web? If so there are a number of things you should be aware of. Even if you have spent just a small period of time on the web, you will probable have come to realize the sheer amount of free information, great services and opportunity that the web has to offer.

But if you are a novice I must warn you just how treacherous this cyber playground can be! For every genuine opportunity there are a whole load of scams waiting for you and where ever you find things free you run the risk of running up against the pests of the internet; spyware, adware and the worst of the lot viruses!

Spyware, viruses and alike can cause you all kinds of problems, but just like scams if you know what to look out for and how to protect your self from them you can surf the net relatively safely. If you get your self the right spyware, virus and adware protection software and keep it up to date on a regular bases, and then do a little research on a good content web site dedicated to spyware, viruses and alike; you can both, protect your computer from being affected by these internet pests and as a user avoid coming into contact with them in the first place, by knowing what to avoid when you see it.

This has worked for me now for some time. A couple of years back I did have some run-ins with spyware and viruses that caused me to eventually reinstall my version of windows. But since I have kept my computer spyware and virus software up to date and leant what to avoid when on the web, I have had no real problems.

Even when you feel you know enough about spyware and viruses, it still wouldn't do any harm to keep a close eye on the info on the web about spyware and viruses as the ways people try to make you fall victim to them will undoubtedly change over time in an attempt to catch more people and you wouldn't want to get caught out.

On the whole I think the internet is a great invention and its possibilities are endless, but we must respect it and be on our guards at all times. Nothing in this world is perfect and all good, but if we can stick to the good and avoid the bad, than at least we will be closer to that ideal.
