SAFETY TIPS

Think before you click!

 

AVOIDING VIRUSES

  • Have 1 good Virus Program (more than one just causes problems)

  • Keep it up to date

  • Remember if you say you “trust this sight” you are shutting off your antivirus!

  • You will NEVER be contacted from Microsoft the IRS or the FBI via phone, this is a scam and you need to hang up and shut down your computer. Never give them money.

 

 

GET UPDATES

  • Software updates are required to keep things running because things change and the software has to change with it in order for it to work properly.

  • NEVER install an update from a pop up when you are on-line (it is most likely a Virus). Instead install directly from the manufacturers website.

  • Programs that require updates > Your Windows (Microsoft) this will be done automatically. Note: update links for Adobe Reader- Adobe Flash – Oracle Java are located below

  • DO NOT shut down during an update.
