want to run a xxxx program . Always select "no" or
"cancel," or close the dialog box.
Prevent Spyware Installation
Spyware copies several files to different directories and
changes the registry. Use a spyware remover - a
program dedicated to removal of sypware.
Run a legitimate product to remove spyware e.g
Ad-Aware, Microsoft Window Defender, Webroot's
Prevent Identity Theft-Beware of phishing scams - a form of fraud that uses
email messages that appear to be from a reputable business (often a financial institution)
in an attempt to gain personal/ financial account information. These often do not
include a personal salutation. Never enter personal information into an online form you
accessed via a link in an email you were not expecting. Legitimate businesses will not ask
for personal information online.
