Install virus protection software and ensure that it is up-to-date
You can proactively block viruses from getting into your system by taking the following all-important steps:
- Make sure you have a comprehensive anti-virus program that protects you from all the latest threats. Newer programs automatically update themselves as soon as you log on to the Internet. If you don't have one, click here for the complete Radialpoint Virus Protection service.
- Radialpoint Virus Protection service automatically scans files as you use them, in real-time, but it is very important that you regularly perform a full virus scan on your computer. You can do this manually by telling your anti-virus program to scan the drive, or you can schedule your software to scan your computer on a regular basis.
- If you are using an anti-virus software that does not provide automatic updates, check the manufacturer's web site for updates on a regular basis to ensure you are always protected against the latest threats.
