These are the advice and recommendations from Trend Micro, the internet security I am presently using. It is valid until December 5, 2010 and I am still thinking whether to buy computer security from them. So far, they are doing well. Keep reading below to help your computer safe from those viruses and malwares.
“Following the advice below can help keep you safe when using your computer and the Internet.
Threats from websites
Only submit personal information to secure websites (look for https:// at the start of the address).
Do not click links in email messages; type the website address directly into your web browser instead.
If you see a warning from Trend Micro or your web browser about a suspicious website, then close the window, even if you have visited the site before (some attackers can now temporarily implant malicious code in popular websites).
Do not install software offered by unfamiliar websites, especially if you supposedly need it to open a photo, music, or video file.
Threats from files on this computer
Do not accept or open files from people you do not know.
Avoid using unfamiliar files passed to you on portable drives (like portable flash memory USB drives).
