Your Internet Safety - Then and Now

Back to the "old" days of the Internet, some of between 8 and 10 years, we have much less concerned about viruses, worms, Trojan horses, etc., as we do today. One reason for this self-satisfaction from the fact that most of us uses a tiny slow dial-up. It has meant that our computer has been used only for a short time, and it lasted forever be downloaded.

Today, with a large number of people increasingly, with a top speed of the connection or broadband, things are very different. Your computer connected to the Internet, it is necessary that every minute. Malware is much more dangerous and the most refined that only two or three years. You need to efforts to help protect your computer against this threat, installation and maintenance of security software correct.

Do not be intimidated by it. It is not difficult. Once everything is installed and running, it takes just a few minutes a day
Their computer security and security is not just your care. If your PC is infected, there could be an impact on an attack or another 600 million computers connected to the Internet. So, each of us has a public responsibility, even mandatory, in our own computer, and protect them. Not counting the time, money and avoids the frustration to avoid problems.

If you have a broadband connection, another, what we can do is ask your Internet service provider and to help them, ask a manual connection. This means that you can, if you click on an icon on the desktop to connect to the Internet, and another symbol, probably in the message (system tray), on the other.

A small inconvenience, perhaps, but your connection is only when you need it. And most important, you know, more aware and, if it is active.
