Our tech explains: how to avoid viruses and parasites

Have you infected your computer in the past? The process of removing it can be costly and frustrating.  Here are some tips to make sure you avoid viruses and parasites in the future!



When searching, watch out for advertisements!

When you search for something, be sure you are going to the intended web site.  In the image above, anything in the green area is safe.  Links in the red areas are not always bad, but depending on the search, can lead web sites that have parasites.  For example, if you search for Starbucks, their web site will normally be first in the green section.  You may notice one of the ads will say starbucks.8m.com, or similar, which may take you to a junk web site.


If someone sends you a link randomly, use caution!

This is a sign of an e-mail address that has been hacked. If you aren’t expecting a link from the person, don’t click on it!  If you aren’t sure, call them!  These links almost always lead to a virus.  Luckily, even basic antivirus programs catch most of these scams.


Go to web sites you know

If you are looking for news, for example, go to cnn.com and don’t click on any associated links.  Normally big web sites like these are fine.  However, going to smaller blog style web sites to get your news might put you at risk for more parasites.

Using these tips can help you avoid parasites in the future.  If you ever have a question about a specific web site, or if your machine has become infected, feel free to give us a call!  We are happy to help.
