It is important to have a virus protection plan. Some ISPs,
like us,scan your email for viruses before you received it.
It is still imortant to have virus software and keep it's virus
library, also called definitions, up to date. We recommend daily
or weekly updates and our prefered software is Norton Antivirus
by Symantec because of it's reliability, ease of use, and ease
of update. Link
addition to viruses, spyware has become a big problem. We recommend
installing and running Adaware 6.0 or later to clean spyware
'pop up' software from your computer.
of the things that can slow down your computer are applications
that start up when you boot up your computer. Check the start
up folder in Windows found at Start > All Programs > Startup.
Remove anything that is not essential to your system operation.
Another place to look is in the Msconfig options. with a little
should be able to sort out what every application is so you
can eliminatethe ones you don't need. Start > Run > msconfig
> OK then select the Start Up tab. Reseach everything on
the list and uncheck anythiing that is not necessary. This task
needs to be done periodically.
