Some Free advice to keep safe whilst browsing and updating on-line software:

Microsoft do NOT call individuals to tell them they have issues on their PC and charge for a fix. These call centres tend to be from the East and say they are calling from ‘Windows’, it is a complete SCAM and do NOT let them take control remotely of your desktop! They will soon after ask for debit card details, do NOT give those either.  Initially switch off your router and tell them you already have ‘Double Glazing’ or better that you do not have a computer!

Running Windows 8, but prefer the start menu of XP/7?  Try the ‘classic shell’ program. www.classicshell.net

Windows 8 and 8.1 have built in security, but its not as good as a third party security suite. L.C.S. recommends NOD32 Internet Security.

Using XP still and don’t want to upgrade. This is fine, just make sure your security suite is a full suite inc firewall and Anti-virus V e.g.  Zonealarm, Norton Internet Security

When installing adobe Reader / flash player, or any other software from the web.  Always try to install it directly from the manufacturers website. During install always check for other software that is offered…….Do you really need it?

Try not to use more than one security suite (Antivirus/Firewall, one of each is fine), else this can lead to vast slow down and also loss of services and Internet.
