Trojan Horses And Protection Of Your PC

April 06, 2010 By: lilybird Category: Software

You know already that there are different kinds of malware and spyware, such as viruses, spy programs, adware and computer worms, but now it is time to speak about a special kind of malware.

Maybe you hesitate to protect your computer and try to skimp on security of your PC, so understanding what threats are hidden in the links and how serious they are must help you to start considering on the proper protection of your PC. You know what viruses are but what is a Trojan horse? It is not a virus, because a virus reproduces itself, but a Trojan horse does not.

But what are these malicious programs and what they do to your computer? Those nasty programs do not make duplicate copies of themselves like internet worms do and they do not replicate. On the contrary, they may seem to be very helpful and legitimate, honest and friendly to your PC. They may appear to suggest you some help and to be your friend; they try to do some good for you but their background is malicious and carries tasks that are destructive on their basis and damaging to your computer. They can get control of your computer even without you think of it and they repeat it many times until it will be too late to change something. Such nasty programs usually gain access to your operating system and it is almost impossible to get rid of them. Thus, your computer must be well equipped with good protective programs to remain functional and healthy.

Developers of such malicious malware (very nice people indeed!) invented a great many various types of Trojan horses, such as keylog Trojans or key loggers, backdoor Trojans and some other nasty programs. Sometimes they can be two in one slot, for instance, both backdoor Trojans and keylog Trojans in one. This makes one program very powerful and it collects data from your computer and sends it back to those who then use your information against you.

As a rule, the hard drive of your computer is not screened by these programs in order to get information. Keylog Trojans monitor users (or loggers) record your actions and you will fall victim to these malicious programs when it comes to bank accounts or online business transaction. Thus loggers attempt to get remote access.

Such Trojan programs may be really very destructive and harmful to your database and your computer in general. It will easier for you to understand the necessity of protecting your personal computer if you know exactly what those programs do to your computer and what they have as objectives. The developers of such programs have one thing in mind: to make as much harm as possible to your machine and destroy it and to invade your private life and business information. Think of protecting your computer today but choose good antivirus software.

Protecting Your PC From Viruses.

April 06, 2010 By: lilybird Category: Software

What about virus and spyware protection for your PC? And what about the difference between spyware and viruses? Do you know it? Do you know that your antivirus software program will not detect any spyware downloaded in your PC, and vice versa – your anti spy program cannot detect viruses in your computer. Yes, you really need a solution for both those problems. You may use a separate program for spyware and viruses like virus blockers and standalone spyware, or you may take software that includes both those features and is able to protect your PC from both problems.
But there are some features which are vital for your online safety whatever software you choose for your PC. You will be vulnerable to infections if you do not have the definitions of the latest spyware and viruses, so you need automatic updates as they are very important to keep your computer safe and at the top of its speed. When you use manual updates, you may forget to update in time, but having your programs automatically updated every time you surf the internet, you feel relaxed. Your information will be still at risk if your program only blocks viruses and spyware but does not do any scanning for existing or hidden problems, or if it only detects but does not clean different forms of malware.
Maybe you have faced it several times and need to remove spyware from your PC today. Your computer may malfunction if it is overheated; if you played much online gaming or run many programs at the same time. When your computer gets too hot, it is a hardware problem, but when some spyware or a virus is placed on your PC, it usually does not affect the physical system of your computer, but it attacks the brains of your laptop or desktop.
The evident sign of infiltration is appearance of additional web browsers that pop up with ads for products that are not related to what you are looking for on the internet. The aim of this malware is to make you buy this or that product. They say that those who create malware are those who create the software to remove it. But those pop-up ads are annoying and you can get rid of them.
Restore a system and return your PC settings to a time before the invasion had occurred. Malware is kept in a separate location and when you reboot your PC; all the foreign programs are eliminated.
Activate your pop-up blockers to stop appearance of all the additional web browsers. Then install software that removes all foreign programs from your computer system. It costs money, of course, but if a foreign software invaded your PC, remove it without any hesitation and you will protect your database and your computer.

Viruses And Spyware Knowledge.

April 06, 2010 By: lilybird Category: Software

Do you know the difference between virus and spyware? And what should you do to protect your PC? You should know useful information about how to protect yourself to keep your private data safe online. Users often confuse different types of malware attacks like virus and spyware and continue to think that a good antivirus program is able to protect their computer and they are safe from all other threats… But it is not like this and when you think so you stay vulnerable and open to all kinds of undesirable infection.
From this short article you will know the difference between a virus and spyware and how to stay really safe and protected online defending your computer against both a virus and spyware.
Spyware is designed to spy on you; these programs come with different things that you download online, for example, with free games, or graphics of emails that you happen to open, or when you click on links in pop-up ads – in all those cases spyware may get into your PC. When spyware gets in, it records and monitors everything you do on your personal computer and sends all the data back to the source. It may know what software you use, what buying or browsing habits you have and in definite cases it can record keystrokes and steal your personal passwords and even your banking information and your credit card information. Usually spyware collects data about you and then composes a profile and some unethical advertisers can use it in order to spam you with various spam advertising and so on. That is how spyware works in your computer.
Unlike spyware programs, virus programs damage your documents and files and make your computer slow down its work in general. A virus program is a malicious program or code and when it gets into your PC, it will do all the activities it has been programmed to do in your computer. We call those viruses as these malicious programs behave in our computers like viruses in our bodies; they spread themselves through emails and other ways.
The best way of defense against viruses and spyware is prevention. You should never click on any pop-ups floating on your computer screen, even if you click on the button ‘cancel’, it can install spyware on your computer. You must just close them clicking on the ‘x’ button. Do not download ‘cracked’ or free software; do not click email links if you do not know who and why has sent you that email.
The speed and performance of your personal computer depends on how well you maintain it and its hardware and software. Do not try to save any money losing in quality of the software you download into your computer.
