At Gemmis we know how easy it is to end up with viruses, spyware, adware, and other malware infections. To decrease the risk of contracting one of these infections, follow these simple guidelines.
Invest in quality antivirus
As with most things, the free version probably won’t be the best. Installing a business grade professional antivirus software could make the difference. The additional protective features and protection against threats are worth the cost.
Update anti-malware applications
The latest threats will change and update themselves, so it’s vital to do the same with your anti-spyware and anti-virus programs. Keeping these programs updated means they will stay equipped to fight the latest threats.
Viruses are not just fast moving, they can be pretty inventive. This means they work to outsmart the protections you have in place. Performing a daily scan adds one more obstacle they need to get by in order to infect your computer.
Regardless of the source, you should always be wary of a link or attachment within an email. The seemingly simple action of clicking a link can destroy critical data, corrupt windows, and infect other machines.
If you didn’t manually arrive at a certain website or page, don’t enter user account or personal information. Instead of clicking a hyperlink, reopen the webpage on a new browser by typing in the address manually.
