    Default How to protect your system from VIRUS

    NOTE:You must unhide the system files first.

    This How To helps a lot to those pupil who don't want any virus in there computer. This how to deals with protecting your system from virus that enters your computer from Pen drives and other removable drives

    You should do following thing to protect your system from VIRUSES-



    1. HAve an updated antivirus program i recommend Quick Heal plus 2008 because it actually repairs the file in 90% cases.

    2. If u recieve an email attachment from an unknown source delete it

    3. If u recieve an email attachment from one of your freind, first confirm from it and before opening read the complete file name of the attachment. Viruses most probably have the extension like these

    "school girl.avi.vbs", "hot.jpeg.bat" etc always look at the last extension.

    4. When you want to use a pen drive or any usb drive, CD/DVD Drive then as soon as you connect the drive presss SHIFT key it disables AUTORUN. Now scan it from ur antivirus program. If u r not satisfied then do the following

    open cmd
    type the drive letter of ur usb drive say H: and press enter

    now look for the Autorun file if any using DIR command

    If there exist AUTORUN file then type AUTORUN.INF and press enter

    the autorun file is now opened in notepad
    Sample Autorun File[autorun]
    open=foo.exe bar
    ;ShellExecute=index.html
    icon=foobar.ico
    action=Foo Bar
    shell=doubleclick.exe
    shell\configure=&Configure...
    shell\configure\command=setup.exe
    shell\install=&Install...
    shell\install\command=setup.exe
    Shell\Option1=Text1
    Shell\Option1\Command=option1.exe
    Shell\Option2=Text2
    Shell\Option2\Command=option2.bat
    label=My backup data

    why go to all the bother when a good antivirus will do the job and if you have winpatrol installed then you are quite safe. This is too geeky for most, ok if you have nothing else to do but most just want a pc that works easily

    I'm with you, Seti. I'll stick with WinPatrol, Security Updates, Autorun disabled, no filesharing, A/V, firewall and safe surfing. Its worked a charm for me all these years.

    I have tried it back in 2008 just to test the software and I was not impressed with it. Personally, I don't recommend Quick Heal to anyone.
