Recommendations For Preventing Virusesclick here
So you've gotten your computer back virus free and want to start fresh and be sure this doesn't happen again, well here are some tips, but keep in mind, there is no guaranteed way to prevent viruses, if there was; Virus Scanners, Security companies and Myself would be out of business, but these are some ways to GREATLY reduce the chance you'll get any:
1) Most importantly, ensure you keep your virus scanner up to date. If you choose to have Microsoft Security Essentials installed, this shouldn't be an issue as I configure it to scan and update every day.
2) Run Windows Updates OFTEN, go to your start menu, accessories, and choose windows updates, install any updates that it recommends. An even better approach is to enable "Automatic Updates" in Windows XP, or "Windows Update" in Windows 7. Keeping Windows updated is very important, they constantly are releasing new security updates to fix any issues with Windows that might let viruses through.
3) Do not open any email attachments from people you do not know, even if you do know them, if you suspect anything about an email attachment, your better off replying to the person and confirming that they intentionally send it.
4) If you use firefox be sure to keep it updated often as well.
5) Do not use any type of file sharing program, whatsoever, a lot of the time that I am removing viruses I see a shortcut to one file sharing program or another on the desktop, these programs are notorious for allowing viruses through by naming them as popular songs and movies, and as soon as you attempt to run the file, your infected. If you do still decide to use these programs, understand the risks, and how to best protect yourself/
6) Enable windows firewall in the control panel, this will aid in blocking viruses from trying to break through open ports
