  6. Windows XP End Of Support

    After 12 years, support for Windows XP has ended on April 8, 2014. There will be no more security updates or technical support for the Windows XP operating system. Without critical Windows XP security updates, your PC may become vulnerable to harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software which can steal or damage your business data and information. Many software vendors will no longer support their products running on Windows XP as they are unable to receive Windows XP updates. Most PC hardware manufacturers will stop supporting Windows XP on existing and new hardware.

  7. Tip of the Day Always keep an eye on what you click and download, including music, movies, files, browser plug-ins or add-ons
    Be wary of pop-up windows that ask you to download software or that offer to fix your computer. Often these pop-ups will claim that your computer has been infected and that their download can fix it – don’t believe them. Close the window and make sure you don’t click inside the pop-up window. Do not open files of unknown types, or if you see unfamiliar browser prompts or warnings asking you to open a file. Sometimes malware may prevent you from leaving a page if you land on it, for example by repeatedly opening a download prompt. If this happens, use your computer’s task manager or activity monitor to close your browser.

    RE: How to Remove a Virus from a Smartphone

    Wouldn't just remove the malicious app. , remove the actual infection?
    Why is need it to restore to default settings?

    Hi Jack,

    Yes, removing the malicious app should work, but most users won't know which app is malicious.

    RE: How to Remove a Virus from a Smartphone

    I haven't dived into the smartphone area, so I don't know much, but would downloading Apps from their official marketplace be slightly safer than say an unknown site?

    What about advice for Rooted smartphones?

    I'll sure be looking at this when I upgrade. :D

    On some cases when an Antivirus fails to removed a threat, they advised to manual disinfection by uninstall the malicious app.
