Safe Computing

  • Do not open files emailed to you by strangers or click on links in email messages that seem odd
  • Make sure that your computer is running a fully up-to-date virus checker which checks all new files before you open them
  • Turn on Windows Automatic Update
  • Check manually for updates to programs which you have installed (e.g. Microsoft Office)
  • Make sure you have a firewall installed and running
  • Make regular back-ups of important documents.
