1. Do not use administrator mode
Do not use administrator mode. Create a standard user without administrator rights and use this instead. Nearly all viruses cannot install without administrator mode.
2. Do not install unneeded software
Do not install any unneeded software, especially free software. Most viruses disguise themselves as useful and free software.
3. Do not use free antivirus solutions
Free anti-virus solutions usually have limited functionality. A bad anti-virus program will slow the system down to a crawl. We support the NZ ESET NOD32 anti-virus.
4. Do not overheat computers
Do not let computers overheat by direct sun light or sucking in dust. The dust will block the fans thereby causing the computer to overheat and possibly damage or burn out components.
