How to stop Malware

As with all unwanted internet files and applications, there are three essential actions to be considered:
1. Malware Scanning to detect whether any file has secreted itself on your drives or in your registry
2. Malware Removal. This involves software that can identify and remove the malware
3. Malware Prevention. It is essential that you block any further invasion once you have removed any existing malware files

Because there are so many forms of Malware, you may need to deal with certain types individually.
eg.
Antivirus software
Spyware removal software
Popup blockers
Firewalls
Anti-Spam Blockers

First steps for malware removal

As a general rule we would recommend running a free scan for spyware and adware using a program like Spyware Nuker or NoAdware. This will normally identify any malware applications other than viruses. From this you will be able to decide what other actions you need to take.

Firewalls
We recommend that invest in an effective firewall such as Zone Alarm

Antivirus Software
It is essential to employ a good Anti-Virus software such as Norton Antivirus or Mcafee, which will constantly monitor your emails and internet browsing, and provide regular live updates and support.
Anti-virus programs such as Norton Antivirus* and Macaffee* will automatically monitor and scan incoming files for viruses. Any viruses recognised are immediately quarantined and an attempt is made to eliminate the virus and repair infected files. Failing this, the files can be deleted, This is OK if the files are Temporary Files, but caution is needed if they are program files.
These Antivirus softwares also enable the licence holder to automatically update their software to take account of new developments. The rate at which viruses and trojans are developed means that they are always one step ahead of the software companies, and it is often wise to occasionally use more than one Antivirus program.

ISP Antivirus Software
There are several ways of preventing these viruses, depending upon your ISP. Many ISPs now provide an antivirus scan, which eliminates the majority of suspicious attachments before forwarding the mail.

Increase internet security

Email accounts are under almost continual attack from unwanted emails (SPAM), and various forms of Malware viruses and malicious programs. Email attachments and file downloads are the principal portal of entry for many viruses and unsolicited programs. Certain types of file attachments are common vectors of viruses and trojan horses.
One of the most effective controls lies within Outlook Express. Just Click on Tools, then Options, and then Security and Privacy and you will be able to select the level of security you require.

Be Alert
Don’t respond to emails where you are uncertain of the validity of the sender. Always check the email address of the sender.

Another way that emails can spread malicious or unsolicited programs is by encouraging the recipient to visit a site and download files often purported to be free. Generally, if you do not know the sender, or are unsure as to their authenticity, do not open attachments or respond to their invitation to visit their site.

A good anti spam software such as SPAM NUKER is an effective way of keeping unsolicited emails at bay, by requiring verification form the sender.

Hoax Viruses
Prevention Check the virus name out on the internet
Spam Nuker

These hoax emails can also be spread using worm viruses which infect address books, so it is also very important to maintain an effective and up to date Anti Virus program
