Our advice to avoid viruses

  • Ensure that you have adequate virus protection which is regularly updated. Also make sure that your operating system is up to date and patched with the latest security updates. Scan your computer on a regular basis (this may not be necessary if your security software does this for you automatically). Install and run a firewall on your computer. If you use a router, this usually includes a hardware firewall.
  • Do not open any attachment or file in an email that you are not expecting, regardless of whether this is from someone you know or from an unknown or suspicious source. Newer email viruses can appear as though they have been sent from friends or colleagues, so check with the sender directly to confirm that the email is legitimate. If not, delete the file. Be very suspicious of any offers or claims made – they are rarely what they seem.
  • Reduce the risk of downloading viruses and Trojans by only downloading files from reputable websites, such as software manufacturers' own sites.
  • Regularly back up your files, preferably keeping the backup copy separate from your computer. If the worst does happen, you will then at least have a copy of all of your work, photos and other information.
