Security

Keep Windows, your web browser and applications up to date since most malware exploits weaknesses in your software. Regular updating closes down these vulnerabilities.

Up to date Anti-virus and a Firewall are absolutely essential. There are paid-for Security packages like Norton or Kaspersky that include comprehensive computer and internet protection.

If you are more confident using computers and if Security packages seem a bit pricey then there is an array of free programs that you can use to build multi-layer Security solutions.

Don't get malware in the first place is the best defence. For example, don't follow links from unknown websites or e-mails if you can help it. Type the address into the search bar or type the URL directly into the address bar.

Also when you shop on internet sites you don't know, remember to check them against customer reviews. www.trustpilot.co.uk is a useful website to do this.
