The Best Practices for Preventing Viruses and Malware on Your Computer

Each day, many people face various challenges associated with the operation of their computers. One particular problem that they face is the erratic behavior that is displayed after the Operating System, especially Windows, has finished loading. Such behaviors may include, but are not limited to, the mouse moving by itself, the CPU working at 100% without user intervention, files disappearing even though the user did not delete them, and lots of unrelated and unwelcome popup windows appearing when the Internet browser is open. These are usually the signs of viruses and malware on the computer. So, how can you prevent viruses and malware from appearing on your computer?

First of all, install an anti-virus program. Some popular brands include McAfee, Norton, and even free ones like Avast and Avira. These programs help to find and remove viruses and malware from your computer.

Secondly, you can install anti-malware software like Malware Bytes. It scans your computer and automatically deletes any malware that is found.

Thirdly, when downloading files, always check them for viruses before opening them on your computer. This will ensure that they are safe for your machine. In addition, when you are going to copy files from removable media to your computer, scan them first to ensure that the files are clean. Kaspersky Antivirus has a wonderful feature that automatically scans removable drives for viruses as soon as they are inserted into the USB port. As it relates to general anti-virus and anti-malware protection, ensure that the software for each program is set run in the background so that they can provide continuous protection once the computer is turned on.
