Avoiding Malware

  • If you use a Windows computer make sure you run Windows Update.
  • Use Antivirus software-keep it up to date!
  • Be cautious-avoid opening email attatchments, peer to peer file sharing and installing software from dubious sources.
  • Use a Broadband Router.

Removing Malware

  • Keep Antivirus up to date. Try using an effective, though less known, Antivirus program such as Nod32.
  • Run removal tools provided by Antivirus companies.
  • Manual removal directions are often available from antivirus companies, i.e. Symantec's SARC

Users can prevent most malware by using safe computing practices.

They can avoid opening email attatchments, stay away from peer to peer file sharing websites (Kazaa, Limewire, etc.), use a simpler web browser like Firefox, click NO when a dubious web site wants to install software on their computer, and keep Windows up to date by patching regularly with Windows Update.

Safe computing is enhanced by Technical solutions.

A broadband router will stop unsolicited traffic from the Internet and hide your computers inside a hardware firewall. Antivirus software will protect against known malware and attempt to stop what it interprets as virus-like behavior. Privacy and content filtering services such as iPhantom bundle corporate level IT experience and technology into a hardware solution for the home or business. Having a reliable backup system in place removes the drama and "excitement" from a malware outbreak. Virtual private networks can ensure security while allowing remote users to access network resources as well as securing unsecure transmission over public Wi-Fi networks.
