Before we get started, we invite you to recommend this page to your friends so that they, too, are maximally educated on the issue of protecting their own computers.
As most of you use the Internet on a daily basis, it is very important to have reliable protection on your computer in the form of an antivirus program that is regularly updated and that is constantly running and active. Most modern antivirus solutions have so-called scanners that scan every program and every file you try to access or run. If you do not have an antivirus program installed, we invite you to install it as soon as possible.
Recommendation: Avast Free antivirus (free for home use), BitDefender Free (free for home use). BitDefender Online Scanner is also a great method for detecting viruses.
It is very important to keep in mind that free versions often do not have all the features as commercial ones. If you want better protection of your computer or computer network, you can contact us with an inquiry to offer you the most favorable solution for your needs. Navigo SC d.o.o. is an authorized distributor of renowned manufacturers Avast and BitDefender, which were rated the highest in all independent tests.
It is very important to note that all computers on the network must have active protection. Protecting just one computer will not help and you will constantly have a problem with one or more computers. Especially if they are networked or frequently use removable storage, which is one of the most common methods of spreading the virus (more details on USB memory protection can be found below)
More advanced computer protection
Unfortunately, antivirus alone is not enough to protect your computer. It also takes some knowledge of using a computer as well as a couple of additional tools that will help quite a bit. One of them is MalwareBytes which also has a free version. This tool is great for removing viruses and toxins that have somehow slipped through antivirus protection.
Another tool that has also gained a great reputation over the years is SpyBot Search And Destroy (when visiting, select one of the download servers). It is highly recommended that you refresh the sig when running the specified program. definition and then run the Immunize option.
BitDefender USB Immunizer is a great tool that will automatically “corrupt” every USB you plug into your computer, but so that viruses can’t spread through it and run automatically on your computer. The specified option is realized by creating the AUTORUN.INF file, but in such a way that the specified file cannot be deleted or modified. The file just mentioned was used by the virus because all the commands listed in it are automatically executed when connecting portable USB sticks.
A similar tool is the Panda USB Vaccine, which protects portable USB sticks in an identical way.
Unfortunately, so-called firewalls are mostly turned off on user computers, and they are extremely useful programs that help prevent attacks on your computer that come from other initiated computers or from malicious computers. If you don’t already have a firewall installed, at least try not to shut down the built-in Windows firewall.
Other useful tips
Keep in mind that the virus itself is older than the antivirus program, and in order for the antivirus program to recognize a virus, it needs to have regularly updated definitions based on which it detects and removes viruses. Please read the following recommendations in detail and adhere to them as much as possible:
do not click on a pop-up window before reading in detail what is written on it
when installing individual programs, do not blindly click Next, Next, but follow what the dialogs ask you. Very often, by installing various programs, unwanted programs are also installed (various toolbars that display advertisements, install additional programs, etc.)
do not save passwords on shared computers (reading rooms, libraries, internet cafe, etc.)
use enough complicated passwords (12345 is not a good password and is very easy to guess)
be sure to keep your antivirus updated regularly
be sure to include regular opera updates. system (Windows updates)
scan your computer regularly
