How Do I Secure Windows?

The first step to securing your computer (today we will talk about Windows) is to determine what is at stake. Learning as much as possible on your computer, the security of your network will make you easier to be able to estimate when your system is compromised, and will greatly improve your chances of staying safe. windows lock Windows

Obviously, a computer that does not have Internet access but is used as a typewriter is much safer than a computer that is used on the web together by many family members. It may be used to download files or to participate in internet chat sessions, etc. Regardless of the intended use, there are three basic steps for your security: You must have anti-virus software (and keep it upset), never open files from sources you do not know and your system always needs to be up to date.

Beyond that, there are some other precautions that can be taken and will further ensure the security of your computer.

1. Use a firewall. This will offer you a different level of protection. You can have a hardware firewall - like what's on your router. There are also a lot of 3rd-party software applications that you can apply to your operating system. Windows also has a Firewall.

2 Use "difficult" passwords as much as possible. Using your dog's last name or first name for a password puts your security at risk. Much of this information can be easily discovered by hackers. Of course you should not use your children's names or other personal information. A strong code should contain letters, numbers, and special characters (such as?% * # @) That are not used to describe a real word. You should also change your password frequently - at least every 30 days.

3. Rename the Admin account. Because the Administrator account is by default, it gives the hacker 50% of the information it needs to access your computer. All he has to do is break the password. To make things more difficult, a good practice is to rename the Administrator account.

4. Create a password for the Guest account. The Guest account is also installed by default and uses a blank password. In general, the account is disabled and is not a threat. However, some hackers use utilities to activate the Guest account. With an empty password, it is very easy to break your system. Set a password for the Guest account, and leave the account off.
