Keeping Your Computer Safe! Everyone Should Read This!

First: Remove any virus software you have unless it’s AVAST.

Go download Avast Antivirus Home Free edition from Install it and register it…its free guys…and its good…it catches most everything and its cheaper than Norton which slows down your computer muchly.

then…just to be safe

go to and download MalwareBytes…do a full scan on your computer…i bet you 10 bucks you got something on there…and remove that stuff…THATS THE STUFF YOUR OLD ANTIVIRUS MISSED

Now go to

Download Spybot Search and Destroy:Spybot - Search & Destroy can detect and remove spyware of different kinds from your computer. Spyware is a relatively new kind of threat that common anti-virus applications do not yet cover. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you didn't intentionally install, if your browser crashes, or if you browser start page has changed without your knowing, you most probably have spyware. But even if you don't see anything, you may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging that is silently tracking your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile of you that will be sold to advertisement companies. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm in trying to see if something snooped into your computer, too :)

Next:Download and install Spyware Blaster From Here:

Spyware, adware, browser hijackers, and dialers are some of the fastest-growing threats on the Internet today. By simply browsing to a web page, you could find your computer to be the brand-new host of one of these unwanted fiends!

The most important step you can take is to secure your system. And SpywareBlaster is the most powerful protection program available.

  • Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted software.
  • Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
  • Restrict the actions of potentially unwanted sites in Internet Explorer.

SpywareBlaster can help keep your system spyware-free and secure, without interfering with the "good side" of the web. And unlike other programs, SpywareBlaster does not have to remain running in the background.

NEXT: go to and download firefox and never look at IE7 or 6 again…ever for any reason…they still have a huge security hole in them that you have to deal with which is where MOST of todays major viruses like Vondurante come from…do it

I am not an expert....I got this information from the guy who works on my computer and from a few other people....Please Ask your Computer Guy.

But for heavens sake, don't do nothing...Protect your computer.

Firefox is fine, but I am a computer tech. No person has ever been able to prove to me that Firefox is more secure than IE. In my experience people get viruses from going to the websites that have the threats built into them. It does not make any difference what software you run, nothing is bulletproof. The better advice is for internet users to be selective about the sites they visit. In my opinion 90% of the coupon sites have threats built into them. I see it every day!!! I know what it costs to eliminate infection from a computer and it is not worth the coupons.

Thanks for you imput...I agree that the printable coupons are not worth it is you computer is not protected. So, Ladies you have heard it from a computer tech. Coupon sites have threats built into, if you aren't going to protect your computer properly...don't print...just get them from another source.
Thanks so much for your imput...
