25 Computer Viruses What is a virus? a computer program designed to replicate and spread on its own, preferably without a user s knowledge How do viruses spread? Computer viruses spread whenever infected diskettes or files are exchanged. Clicking on links in some websites. Exchanging computer disks or viewing attachments.

26 Computer Viruses How can you protect yourself from viruses? Have an Antivirus program installed on your computer: A variety of Anti- Virus programs are available, however none are 100% effective. ECRL uses Microsoft Security Essentials Regularly scan the computer for viruses (at least once a week). Keep your virus definition files up to date (at least once a month, more times if possible). Keep updated in regards to the latest security patches for your operating systems and applications

27 General Computer Tips The Golden Rule: When all else fails, REBOOT. Ctrl+Alt+Del (all at the same time). IN WIN XP A Close Program or Task Manager dialog box will appear. Select the task you want to end (or the ones that say they are "not responding") and select End Task. If this doesn t work you can reboot the machine, pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del twice in succession.

28 General Computer Tips Turn off the Windows XP Desktop Icon Cleanup message Right click on your Windows desktop, and left click on Properties. Go to the Desktop tab. Click the Customize Desktop button. Uncheck the box that says Run Desktop Cleanup Wizard every 60 days. Note: This feature was removed in Vista.

29 General Computer Tips Keep all of your working files in one folder. The My Documents folder is offered by Windows expressly for this purpose. The benefits of keeping all your files in one place are multiple. One, you know where all your files are, two, it's easy to back them all up at once, and three, your machine will run faster. Don't put your personal files on the root of the C: drive. If you store a large number of files in the root folder, you could corrupt your disk file table which could lead to a "NTLDR is missing" error message when you boot the computer. Very bad. If you have personal files on the C: drive now, move them to the My Documents folder. Uninstall programs that you are not using. But don t just delete the program. Remove it correctly so you won t cause Windows errors. Go to Start, Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs. Find the program you want to remove in the list, and click the Remove button. If you download a zip file and expand it, delete the original zip file when you are done. If you aren t already using one, get a good surge protector and plug your computer and peripherals into it. If you live in an area with bad lightening storms, unplug you computer and peripherals during the storm.

30 General Computer Tips Clean up your documents. Go through your document folders and look for files you no longer need, then delete them. If you don't feel comfortable with this, then buy an portable external hard drive and backup your files to that drive for safe keeping, then delete them from your computer Clean up your temp files folder. In Windows XP, go to C:\windows\temp and delete all the files in that folder. Note: You may find that some files won t delete, just ignore them and leave them there. (It s because the system is using them at that moment). Clean up your temporary internet files. You can do this easily in whatever browser you are using.

31 General Computer Tips DO NOT Open Unknown s Open Unknown File Downloads Install Incompatible Hardware and Software Randomly Delete Files

32 Computer Updates Update programs when prompted

33 Computer Updates Update Google Chrome Update Internet Explorer ECRL recommends using Google chrome Internet Explorer is a web browser included with Windows, so updates for it are included when you install Windows updates. To enhance the security of your browsing experience and to help fix or prevent problems with Internet Explorer, make sure that you install all available updates for Internet Explorer. If you see a message telling you that important updates are available, or that optional updates are available, click either message to view and select the updates to install. Make sure the Internet Explorer updates that you want are selected, click OK, and then click Install updates. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
