Virus and Spyware Protection – Always make sure that you have an active Virus and Spyware protection. We offer “Secure It” which you can purchase from one of our Customer Service Representatives. If you can’t afford one, there are some good free ones that you can search for on the internet. This is very important or you could lose your entire Operating System and possibly your hardware.

Microsoft Updates – Always install your Express High Priority Windows Updates. If you have your Windows Updates turned on, Windows will send you an alert that will pop up on your task bar when Updates are ready to be installed.
