Antivirus Prevention: Keeping Computers Free From A Virus

New computer viruses are being created everyday by cyber criminals who are working hard towards achieving their aim. Eugene Kaspersky, a computer security researcher, reported in an article in Security News of November, 2005 that his lab receives 200 to 300 new samples of viruses and Trojans everyday. This shows the enormity of the problem.

The viruses infecting a computer are of many types just like their human counterpart. Some are benign and some others absolutely fatal; a few of them quietly damage the system like termites without the user even being aware of its presence until the damage assumes enormous proportions. The treatment of computer viruses also has human analogy which is prevention and cure.

Preventing the virus from entering a computer can be achieved by following a cautious approach to any new programs, files, e-books etc. that are loaded on to the system. They may be copied through floppies, CDs etc. manually or may be downloaded online from another system or the internet. They should be scanned first with antivirus software before being copied or opened. The right click option of most antivirus software makes it easy to scan any suspicious file or program. “Scan it first” should be the general rule.

Firewalls can filter out or warn potential virus threats but they can not completely eliminate them because viruses can be hidden in several ways in data as well as in programs to escape from firewalls detection. Prevention is better than cure, so goes a saying. But it may not always be possible to prevent all types of virus threats and eliminating the virus that has surreptiously entered the system will have to be resorted to sooner or later.

In order to mitigate the damage from possible virus attacks, backing up of important files containing data or programs or both should be carried out periodically. This could be done by burning CDs or stored in removable hard disk. The programs and data could be stored in separate drives like C and D drives, with the latter allocated larger space than the former. All important information like proof of purchase of software, software registration, setup info, activation codes etc. should be stored in a file in D drive. Most of the virus infections are likely to happen in the programs part of C drive. Hence it should be scanned daily for potential viruses. The larger D drive could be scanned on fortnightly or monthly basis.

Good antivirus software is a must to detect viruses and quarantine or eliminate them. There is a wide variety of antivirus programs available in the market and the following is a quick guide to finding the good ones.

1. The antivirus software must be able to give both passive and online protection. Passive protection provides service on demand like when scanning specific drives or files to detect possible virus infection. Online or active protection is a memory resident antivirus program that continuously looks for probable incoming virus threats.

2. Independent testing agencies like Checkmark, PC World, AV test.org etc. give out periodical recommendations on anti virus software available in the market. They could be consulted before selecting a particular software package. Anti Trojan forum rates anti Trojan software periodically; this provides a good idea about the quality of the software. More than one antivirus or anti Trojan software would be required in order to protect from all possible threats.

3. The anti virus software should be constantly updated in order to keep newly emerging viruses at bay. There is an ongoing battle between creators of viruses and antivirus software developers. New patches are made available within hours of detection of a new virus by antivirus software developers and are updated online to all customers. Hence antivirus programs can become obsolete very quickly if not updated in time.

Many ISPs (Internet Service Providers) and email service providers offer server side protection against spams and viruses. They should be preferred in order have an additional layer of protection.

To conclude, in order to protect from viruses the computer user must have good anti virus software that is constantly updated, follow safe practices and he / she must always be alert any new developments as the battle is an ongoing and continuous one.

They have a powerful set-up for complete sales and management solutions and you can receive product demonstrations if you are unsure about buying software or even unsure as to what software you should buy. You can even find a complete Enterprise 21 product overview list, which will help you to find the software you are looking for; this includes a fully integrated warehouse management system.

UB-04 Software
As the Chief Information Officer of a major corporation it is my job to find new software and introduce it to the company I work for. After researching a few website's I became very interested in a particular one called UB-04 Software and after introducing the company I work to UB-04 Software's website, they were to say the least, impressed.

UB-04 Software is a leader in high quality, affordable and reliable form filler software. After using their software, I felt more organized; I felt like I had more time on my hands to do other important work-related things and overall, I just felt like things were accomplished in a more efficient way. I do not have to spend hours on end trying to find new form-filler software because I got everything that I needed from UB-04 Software.

They have everything in medical billing forms and their interfaces are simple to read. There was a free ten-day trial as well, which I liked because I did not want to introduce the company I work for to a website that could not perform. In ten days, I saw just what UB-04 Software was capable of and I was so impressed that I introduce the company I work for it right away.

If you are looking for easy-to-read, easy-to-manage form-filler website and a website that has awesome customer service, there is no reason to keep looking, Ub-04 is the go-to place and I do not think there is any reason to go somewhere in the future!

Outright
As the leading financial organizer at workplace, I needed to find a website that would help me to organize the finances I have to keep organized. After looking online for a while, I thought I would never find a website that fit perfect with what I needed. However, just when I was about to give up hope, I found a website that I immediately liked from first sight.

Outright is an online accounting website that is not only safe and secure, it is so easy to use. I know what you are thinking and I was thinking the same thing about online websites, you are thinking that they are very hard to manage and extremely difficult to understand. Outright is not like that at all, instead the website is extremely easy to navigate and every element of online accounting is explained in great detail, which has helped me because I had so many questions from the start.

Outright is perfect for small businesses and self-employed individuals and they truly help businesses to stay on top of things like invoicing, receipt tracking and contact management. There is an awesome free 30-day trial, which was great for deciding if I wanted to go with Outright or not. Even though I did like what I saw from the beginning I was not so sure yet, if I wanted to go with the website or not. After that first month however, I was very impressed.

I feel more organized and Outright has helped me to accomplish that!
