to protect your computer from hackers, viruses, spyware and trojans?
We find nowadays that we need a good firewall to prevent hackers, a good anti-virus program to guard against viruses, and two or more anti-spyware utilties to stop spies stealing information from the computer.
When did you last scan with your own anti-virus and anti-spyware programs?
I have a Dell Dimension 2350 that operates with windows XP.
I am having problems installing programs onto my computer, I have 2 administrator accounts, and when I attemp to install something it gives me an error that says
'You do not have access to make the required system configuration modifications. Please rerun this installation from an administrators account'
even though I am using an administrators account to attempt to install programs. I don't know if this is related but a few weeks ago my volume stopped working and I try to reistall the sound device but it says that it is not present everytime I restart my computer.
When I try to use my windows update the windows installer just freezes and then cancels the update.
Could both of these problems be related?
I am very greatful for any help given it is very frustrating.
And if I can fix this can anyone recommend any software to prevent this from happening again.
Again thaks for any help.
