Windows Security Solutions

Hello reader,

Aside from a decent antivirus many users don’t spend much time thinking about security on their home computer. There are at least a few applications and practices which can be useful to remember though, so let’s look at a few.

Adobe Settings

Some people don’t realize that a flash player remembers where they have been, or they didn’t realize there were settings to adjust. In either case the link will take you to the page to adjust these settings and even clear the history of the player.

Malware Removal

Malware sometimes isn’t detected by an antivirus program and while there are dozens of malware removal programs they are only good when someone uses them… (Obviously)

Cryptovirus Removal

On that rare occasion that you have a virus type that you aren’t sure how to remove go to YouTube and look it up. A large metropolitan police department spent a considerable sum of money to remove a Cryptovirus in 2014, but the solution had been on YouTube for a year by then already.

Snort

An intrusion detection network can be configured to alert you to unusual packet requests and even tell you if someone is trying to change your filesystem. Snort is such a system, as are Suricata and Samhain.

Anti Rootkit

The first antivirus company to use heuristic scanning is still one of the best in the business. A tool to remove rootkits is available at the link above and can be essential to preventing the loss of administrative control on a secure Windows system.

I’ll do more articles like this in the near future, if you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comment section.
