How To Protect Your Children Online


Protecting your children online is usually much harder than protecting yourself. Children are subject to the same threats that you might be subject to while you are online. Sometimes they are even subject to threats which are worse. Children have to be protected from the online threats, & sometimes even from themselves. Protecting your children online requires discipline, education, & a little use of technology.

Among the threats to which children are subject while they are online are:
  • Harassment.
  • Exploitation (child pornography, abduction, trafficking) & stalking.
  • Exposure to sexually explicit material.
  • Identity theft & fraud.
Threats to children come in the same ways they do to adults. However, children may be more susceptible due to a number of reasons. Among these reasons are:
  • Children are generally more trusting.
  • They may not obey authority figures such as mum & dad.
  • They want to be socially active & accepted by their friends & peers.
Protecting children online involves several facets, such as:
  • Educating them on threats & how these threats are perpetrated. Make your children aware of the threats & what could happen if they do certain actions on the Internet.
  • Encourage your children to talk to you & let you know when someone is trying to get too close to them or get information out of them online.
  • Discourage your children from giving out too much information about themselves (such as photos, home address, phone number, school, friends, etc.)
  • Restrict Internet access. Make sure you know when your children are on the Internet, what they are doing, & with whom.
  • Schedule Internet access to a time when you are able to be at home & talk with them about it, see what they are doing, & so forth.
  • Don't permit unsupervised access. Deny Internet access to your children in their room. Allow Internet access only in public or common use areas (such as the family room, etc.)
  • Make sure you can see the monitor at all times while your children are online. Be wary of children who demand too much privacy online - what do they have to hide?
  • Install & use network monitoring tools such as Net Nanny.
  • If needed, restrict Internet access on the wireless router, DSL router, or even on the computer itself by setting a password that you only know so that your children will only be allowed to login when you can supervise them.
  • Install a firewall that blocks chat or instant messaging programs, or access to certain sites.
  • Install software that limits surfing to certain times of the day, or requires parental permission.

I help how to remove trojan/other virus from my window 7 laptop.please help me.


Here's a fee-based service to do it for you:

http://us.norton.com/nortonlive/

To detect the threat level, you may want to try the free (& advertised on TV) web site
www.MySafePC.com, but virus removal will cost $$ - they're happy to tell you you're infected for
free, though.

Here's Symantec's list of things to do:

If you suspect that your computer is infected with a threat or you receive a threat alert, and you want to make sure that your computer is secure.

You can perform a virus scan to eliminate any known threat from your computer. Scanning your computer for threats is easy if you follow the step-by-step instructions provided in this article. The scanning process may take an hour or more, depending on the number of files you have on your computer.

To detect and remove all the threats from your computer, follow these five steps:

• Install the latest virus definitions.

• Stop all running programs and temporarily disconnect the computer from any network.

• Run the virus scan.

• Install the latest Windows updates.

• Run a full system scan once again to ensure that there are no threats.

The first step is to check whether you can install the latest virus definitions, as some threats may block your access to all the security products' Web sites including Symantec's Web site. The subsequent steps vary depending on whether you can download the latest definitions from the Symantec Web site or not.

Have a virus on my toshiba laptop, can i resolve this by restoring the factory settings?


Hi Andrewfairwa.

Yes, you may remove all the security threats in the Computer by restoring it to the Factory settings.

But, restoring the Computer to the Factory settings will also delete the Data in the Hard Drive.

Hence, you may try performing a Complete System Scan to check for any Virus or security threats.

You may perform the Complete System Scan by using the Anti-virus Application installed in the Computer.

If you have not installed any Anti-virus Application installed in the Computer, you may perform a online System Scan.

Let me provide the detailed steps to perform the online System Scan.

You may perform the free Online Scan by visiting the below link:

http://www.bitdefender.com/scanner/online/free.html

Please open the above link and click on "Start Scanner".

This will start the free Online System Scan.

Once the Scan is complete, check if the Virus or any security threats are removed from the Computer.

If there are still any threats, then you may backup all the important Data and restore the Computer to the Factory settings.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.

I did a scan on my pc and it detected 38 virus th


The easiest and lowest  cost thing to do would be to download Avast!. It is a virus protection software, and if you google search that name, you can download a free trial.  After you download it and you start to set it up, it will ask you if you would like to do a boot time scan on your next restart.  Says yes, and when you restart your computer, it will do a virus scan before booting into windows.  This allows it to remove threats that may be in running memory.  It is very slow, but does a very good job at getting rid of viruses and whatnot.
