Antivirus Tools

The biggest threat to a Windows system is a virus. How or why a virus attacks and how it spreads is a very big issue. Hard nut to crack but the common ways r this,


  • an infected floppy or CD
  • an infected file over the network
  • an infected file from the Internet
  • an infected file you received via e-mail or instant messenger.


so u can use this following AVS to protect ur system from an attack...

Firewall

Anyone who is responsible for a private network that is connected to a public network needs firewall protection. Furthermore, anyone who connects so much as a single computer to the Internet via modem should have personal firewall software. Many dial-up Internet users believe that anonymity will protect them. They feel that no malicious intruder would be motivated to break into their computer. Dial-up users who have been victims of malicious attacks and who have lost days of work, perhaps having to reinstall their operating system, know that this is not true. Irresponsible pranksters can use automated robots to scan random IP addresses and attack whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Now if u have windows XP & a avrage user then can really on their inbuilt firewall... but todays internet hacker a very easily bypassing the windows Protection... so u might think of 3rd party tools
