    14 Household Ways To Protect Your Computer From Viruses

    Computer viruses are deadly. They often spread without any apparent
    contact and can be a nuisance, or even worse, fatal to your computer.
    Individuals who create these viruses, estimated at 10-15 new ones a
    day, are the electronic version of terrorists. Their goal is to inflict
    havoc and destruction on as many people as possible by disabling,
    stealing, damaging, or destroying computer and information resources.
    Often, they have no specific target in mind, so no one is safe. If you
    access the internet, share files or your computer with others, or load
    anything from diskettes, CDs, or DVDs onto your computer, you are
    vulnerable to viruses.

    Fortunately, there are good guys working just as hard as the hackers to
    develop cures for viruses as quickly as they send them off into
    cyberspace. And there are many things you can do to keep your computer
    from catching viruses in the first place.

    Solution 1: Anti-virus Software...

    Solution 2: The Virus Scan...

    Solution 3: Delete first, ask questions later...

    Solution 4: Beware of virus hoaxes...

    Solution 5: Beware of filename extensions...
