First Week of April Brings Increase of Spyware and Malware

I received an email from the Director of Business Development, for SuperAntiSpyware, that was a reminder that the first week of April (coinciding with “April Fool’s Day”) brings an increase in spyware and malware infections.  Also included in this email was 6-(six) tips, that I want to share with you, to remind computer users to be extra vigilant during this period of increased spyware activity.

  1. Don’t open emails, files or attachments from people you don’t know.
  2. Be extra cautious opening emails, files or attachments from people you do know.
  3. Don’t be fooled by “scareware” tactics. Know what software you are using, and familiarize yourself with how it delivers warnings and alerts.
  4. If you’re considering giving your social networking activities a break, now might be a good time. No one will miss you if you take a week off.
  5. Stay away from websites that you haven’t visited before. Think before you click!
  6. Run multiple layers of security software. There are many free and effective solutions that will co-exist well with each other.

If you are looking for another layer of security protection, that will play well (co-exist) with the other security software on your PC, then give SuperAntiSpyware a try!

There are two flavors available: the FREE version [ Get It Here ] and the paid version [ Get It Here ] .  The difference between the two is that the paid version provides “realtime” protection, while the FREE version does not include real-time blocking or scheduled scanning.  Irregardless of what version you go with, this is a GREAT security software option to have installed on your PC that is endorsed by “What’s On My PC…”

    Very good Rick. It would be better if we all do this!

    ‘Stay away from websites that you haven’t visited before. Think before you click!’

    I suggest a site check on Norton Safeweb first before visiting a site.
