Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I ran a Belarc Advisor test on my computer today. The score result was just 3.13 & fairly low. The Belarc Advisor performed a security audit of my system using the CIS Level-I benchmark appropriate to my operating system. The result is a number between zero and ten that gives a measure of the vulnerability of my system to potential threats. The higher the number the less vulnerable my system. Could you pleasetell me how can I go about increasing my score in future?

    I am not sure what "OS" means, however my computer runs automatic window updates on a regular basis (not quite sure if this is the samething).

    As for antivirus, I currently have Norton installed, it comes with it's own personal firewall too. as a back up I have windows firewall activated.

    Yes. You would normally need to apply updates to the OS from the Windows Updates site; unless you have... have you?

    What antivirus and firewall do you have if any?

OS means Operating System.

On your machine, disable Windows Firewall as it is known to conflict with Norton's Firewall and leave you disabled.

Also, go to click on the Continue Button start downloading Windows Defender and install it.

Then rerun your protection score and post back any change.

Belarc is not considered to be the software to own and use for benchmarking your computer's vulnerability.

The USB port for my Canon printer is not being recognized in Win 7

First, I would like to advise you to download free Belarc Advisor which will take a very detailed picture of your system and accessory devices as well as installed software of all types. This will aid you when asking for help:

Belarc Advisor Free Personal PC Audit Version 8 4

It will (for example) tell you of updates to your OS that may be missing and also security updates.

The USB problem can be related to numerous things; driver for the Canon or your board's USB ports, cables (if not wireless) or a dead USB circuit.
Take a look at the list of devices in the device manager and check for any signs of trouble such as red 'X' marked items.

If you have any brand-specific diagnostic software (i.e. Dell, HP etc.) run it to look for problems.

Bookmark this page so you can find it again and reply back via 'comments' if you find something amiss.

Most laptops have replaceable keyboards that are not very difficult to replace. Just search for the model number, which should be on the bottom, or get a utility like the free Belarc Advisor

That will give you a model number. Then, you can search for that model number and replacement keyboard. And get the service manual from the laptop mfrs website.
