In today’s age, computers are our lives. We have our phone numbers, business appointments and important documents stored on them. How on earth do we manage our computers for business and information. We use our email for personal uses to loved ones, websites and total strangers. It’s hard to keep up with everything without a good head on our shoulders. Sometimes we are careless with our things and we tend to lose our password and username, then we have to get them back via email. How can we manage helping ourselves with these small problems. You keep a note of every password and username you have in a safe document on your laptop or pc.
This is easy, just create a simple document either in text or word with your password on it and put it into a usb or disc of some sort. Put the disk in a safe place where you can find it easily.
Windows sometimes can be a pain in the butt, you can keep your computer safe by only downloading from safe websites like download.com, snapfiles.com and softpedia.com. If you need drivers, go to driversguide.com to get a free account and download those files and back them up to a disc , diskette or usb. If you want a safer solution without any bugs, try ubuntu linux, it seems to be a really good use these days. It’s free and easy. Make sure you backup for files and pictures to cdrom or dvd before you try ubuntu. If you have another computer besides the one you use currently, you might want to try it. It has everything you need for efficiency in productivity.
When surfing the web, make sure you have something like zonealarm, mcafee or avg. There are malicious websites out there that have malware. Malware can multiply itself on your hard drive and wind up in every single folder you. Malware tries to force you to give out your personal information or use a program you thought you got rid of. Make sure none of your credit card information is on your computer if you have this on your computer. If you find a specific file that keeps prompting on your computer like antivirus 2009. You probably need to visit symantec.com for a free antivirus scan. Antivir also is a good alternative to symantec. You get a free home version to use and if you want to upgrade, you don’t have to be forced into that either. You can also try opensource versions of antivirus software like clamav and moon antivirus.
