Is your computer safe from Internet thieves? 

Using anti-virus software on it's own is no longer enough to keep your computer safe. You also need to block off your PC with a Firewall. A Firewall is software you install to block off unwanted traffic to and from the Internet. With a broadband connection it's doubly important you use a firewall, as your PC is always online and always at risk from viruses, spyware and fraudulent activity.

Options. As usual the more you pay, the more you get.

Anti Spyware

Spyware is software downloaded onto your computer that monitors your activities. Not all spyware is malicious, but some illegal spyware also known as malware, is deliberately designed to steal personal details from your PC. This usually happens to computers that do not have firewall and anti-virus software, or not regularly updated with the latest updates to these programmes. Firewall software like that provided by McAfee will usually include anti spyware.

Phising
'Phishing' is an attempt by fraudsters to 'fish' for your banking details. You'll see this as an email that could appear to be from your bank or someone you know. You'll be asked to click a link to a fraudulent log on page designed to capture your details.

As with all email, if in doubt delete it, especially those with links or attachments. For maximum protection, make sure you keep your computer up to date with all the latest security patches to your operating system (see: Microsoft Security Updates, Microsoft Support). Regularly update your firewall and antivirus programmes.
