Windows Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Easy tips to protect your Windows from hackers and malware

Easy tips to protect your WIndows PC from hackers and malware

In the news recently there have been some high-profile security scares for computer users. Common sense alone isn’t enough to protect your Windows PC from malware – malicious software that disrupts your computer’s operations or gathers sensitive information about your online behaviour.
Hackers can attack your PC in so many different ways that employing several layers of anti-malware protection is the only way to keep your PC malware-free when it’s online.
Here are seven steps to protect your computer from Malware. Check out the video above to find out more.

Tip 1: Install, update and use anti-virus software

Installing antivirus software may sound like an obvious first step to protect against malware, but not everyone bothers to do it. With so many options now available, though, there really is no excuse. Microsoft offers its own free download in the form of Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows Vista and 7, while Windows 8/8.1 has Microsoft Defender built in.
Once installed, it’s vital to regularly update your anti-malware software’s database and run system scans at least once a month.

Tip 2: Keep Windows up to date

Hackers often discover new ways to bypass Windows’ built-in security features, which is why Microsoft issues small operating system updates every Tuesday and larger ‘service pack’ updates once or twice a year. These will be downloaded and installed automatically by Windows update, but only if this feature is properly configured.
To check that it’s working normally, type Windows Update in the Start menu search box in Windows Vista/7, or at the Start screen in Windows 8/8.1. Look on the left of the Windows Update window and click Change settings and use the drop-down list to check that Install updates automatically is selected - anything other than this risks a crucial update being missed.

Tip 3: Turn on the Windows firewall

Windows has a built-in ‘firewall’ that protects your PC from unwanted attention via the internet. This software firewall is enabled by default and works alongside any hardware firewall that’s built into your home broadband router. Check its settings by typing “check firewall” in the Start menu search box or on the Windows 8 Start screen and choosing Check firewall status from the results.
Two green tick marks mean the firewall is working normally, else you’ll need to select Turn Windows Firewall on or off on the left of the window and enable one or both options that appear.

Tip 4: Use the latest version of your web browser

Web browsers are vital applications, but just like other software, they can contain bugs. Hackers are quick to capitalise on these and create bogus (or infect genuine) web sites with data designed to exploit them. Once a web browser has been compromised in this way, a hacker can monitor everything you type, including passwords to credit card numbers. That’s why it’s vital to use the latest version of your web browser - anything other than this may be a security risk.
Microsoft includes updates for Internet Explorer. Search for Windows Update and check its optional updates section to ensure you’re also using the latest version of the application - which is Internet Explorer 11, if you’re using Windows Vista, 7 or 8/8.1.

Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will also update themselves automatically, but don’t ignore their requests to restart the browser when such an update has been downloaded and is ready to be installed.
Emails that appear to be from a recognisable online service asking you to log into a site to confirm some personal details are always fake. These emails are usually caught by your email application’s spam filter, but if one does slip through and you click its link, your web browser should detect and block the site it takes you to. This does depend on your web browser being aware of the fraudulent site, though, which is another good reason to always use the most recent version.

Tip 6: Use the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool

If you suspect your PC has succumbed to malware and your anti-malware software doesn’t detect it, there are two steps to take.
The first is to download and run the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool from the Windows Download Centre. This will detect and remove specific types of malware and is very simple to use, although it isn’t a replacement for a full anti-malware application.

Tip 7: Still infected? Use a boot CD.

Some malware can hide within Windows and make itself difficult to detect and remove. If your own anti-malware software and the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool fail to shift it, you’ll need to download and burn a free anti-malware boot CD – refer to your computer’s manuals for instructions on how to boot from a CD as the process varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

clock March 25, 2015 05:36 by author Mark

Hi guys today I will explains How to Upgrade From Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. Ok let me to show you.

As we all know, Microsoft has introduced Windows 10 for its user, but it is still not finished and does not yet contain all the features that will make it more reliable and powerful for users. There is a question in everyone's mind of whether Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for Microsoft users or will there be a charge. So people are waiting for it eagerly. We know that Windows 10 will run on a set of devices, these devices have various sizes of screens. I think the Windows 10 update might be free because Microsoft wants to make it the best platform or operating system for its users.

Upgrade Windows 8.1 into Windows 10

Step 1

The first step is to download Windows 10 from the link Windows 10 Setup. When you click on this link you will see a window with an option to get started as in the following picture.

When you click on the install button your window will install and you will get a message as in following picture. This will also run from zero percent to a hundred percent so it also might require some time. One thing to note there is that during this process your PC will we restarted many times.

After clicking on the use express settings we will see a window that asks for a Microsoft account. Here you have the option to use an old account or you can create a new account. Here I go with my old Microsoft account.
