Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Add a limited user account if you're running windows. If you don't know how to do this google is your friend. You should never log in your admin account unless it's absolutely necessary.Don't be fooled browser like Google Chrome making your system secure. The problem is scripting can infect your machine. It's best to use Firefox Browser with no script Firefox addon. Then you will want to install a program called sandboxie. This will help with blocking software or malware installation when you're using sandboxie.
Of course use a good antivirus software. Microsoft Security Essential is recommended and it's free, they just don't advertise about it.
If you are truly paranoid you will want to run a vpn. A vpn service will hide your real ip. There is several free vpn solutions. Hot shield anchor free is the one I use.
Just remember not to install programs from untrusted sources and always scan for malware. If you truly want a more secure system, linux is by far better. You will get security updates within a few days to a week whereas you can wait for a month on windows.
