Download and install some type of virus protection. The ones that came with your notebook are just trial versions. Try downloading AVG FREE or Avast for your notebook. Also try Ewido, Spybot Search & Destroy and Spyware Blaster. I would also look into using a host file to help keep out the baddies. Remember your mission, if you care to except it, is to keep the baddies out of your computer.
Hope this helps.
I just bought my first laptop yesterday at Circuit City and it is a HP DV5220US. I was told by the salesperson the first thing to do after it is charged was to download the trial virsus protection then I could get on internet.
The problem is she said that until I purchased it I did not have full protection and could still get a virsus. I was wanting to download the good free virsus and spyware software that I found on this website.
I would appreciate it if you could tell me where to post this so that someone could tell me the steps of what I need to do. The last thing I want to do is get a virsus since thats the problem with my desktop now.
