Broadband is an always on connection where while to computer is on it is connected to the Internet (you pay according to what you download rather than for how long you are connected).

This can be a problem as while you are connected to the Internet, the Internet is connected to you. Reasonable precautions against viruses and hackers are therefore recommended.

  • You absolutely must have up to date antivirus software and update it regularly.
  • You should also have a personal Firewall installed and running on your PC to stop unauthorised access from the Internet.
  • You must also have Microsoft Windows Updates running and be up to date with the patches issued by Microsoft.
  • You should consider using an “Adware” removal software package (Adware are advertising information which get installed from some web sites and cause unnecessary pop ups and links appearing)

Be Secure!
