    Default DANGER!!!VIRUS ALERT







    DO always use up-to-date anti-virus software. Being up-to-date is critically important. Note that an illegal copy of anti-virus software can't protect you against harms as it does not update automatically.

    DO scan all new programs or files that may contain executable codes before you run or open them. For instance, you shouldn't run programs directly from emails.

    DO keep your computer up-to-date. Always update Microsoft Windows with the latest version.

    DO use Internet firewalls. Microsoft provides a free firewall for each Windows XP user.

    DO regularly back up your data and prepare for recovery, as even the most expensive anti-virus tools are no guarantee of 100% free from virus and worm attacks.

    DO follow the above suggestions to improve computer security, though nothing will offer a full guarantee.
    DON'T download software from any sites that you don't trust.

    DON'T open email attachments (or even emails) from people you don't know.

    DON'T open email attachments with file extension (.EXE, .BAT, .COM, and .PIF), Microsoft Word documents (.DOC) and Visual Basic scripts (.VBS) directly from emails even if you know the sender. Never open .VBS files. It is risky.

    hehehe, some scammers will use the "big brother is watching you" method to get unprepared and unsuspecting email users to click and be hacked in the process. really nice tip on how to get yourself protected at the basic level. add rootkit to one of the malicious codes roaming around. and phishing websites. also be wary of emails declaring you won a lottery worth millions of dollars from some far-off place in Timbuktu and that you have to send money via Western Union to claim your price. at the end of the day, it's pure common sense that should protect your life in the online community.
