avoiding viruses, spyware, malware and adware


It is best to run different types of protection, always running anti-virus program and anti-spy/mal/ad-ware programs as needed.


Use a Good Antivirus Program

Link to Trendmicro.comInstall update and run often, a good anti-virus program such as Avast or Avira. This is based on independent testing from AV Comparatives. As for paid anti-virus I prefer Trend Micro's Worry-Free Business Security Services.



Install, update and run on a regular basis antimalware software. My favorites are Malwarebytes and Superantispyware both have free versions. Best to run both at least once a month.


Every month or so run an online antivirus scan like Trend Micro's Housecall.


Once a year download and reinstall all of the anti-virus products you use.
