Maintenance Tools

In the Wild West frontier of the Internet you are bound to bump into some bad guys. It is a double edged sword in that because it is so free you have access to an unbelievable amount of information and at the same time, it has access to you. The right array of "maintenance tools", combined with smart internet surfing skills should keep you free from the real nasties that are out there.

A proven antivirus program is a good idea. We like NOD32 by Eset very much because it is light weight and has demonstrated some very pre-emptive behavior in our shop when transferring data from a customer machine to our shop system.

Along with an antivirus program, Spybot Search and Destroy, Adaware from Lavasoft and Malwarebytes are good companions. These two programs need to be manually run from time to time. We like to add to this group of programs with a good temp/cookie controller like IE Privacy Keeper which we set to remove all unneeded cookies, temporary Windows files and Prefetch files everytime we get off the internet. Combine this array of programs with good behavior and you should be fine.
