Why should one pay for antivirus software?The Free versions only stop the latest virusses, the older trojans and other virusses are dropped off. Most of the antivirus programs these days do regular adjustments to your software in real time.
Pirate anti-virus software can cost you dear
If you have a pirate
version, you are not able to access the latest upgrades. The better antivirus applications have more functionality and is usually more user friendly; easier to install and set up yourself.
Free antivirus that works
In South Africa, banks provide some really good anti-virus software. Just remember to allow it enough time to update.
Where do the downloads go?My suggestion
: Create a Downloads folder within your "My Documents" folder. ... Why?... So that when you do backups
, your downloads are also backed up. If something happens and you have to restore your computer, you can restore all the downloads too, otherwise you will lose all the downloads you have done over time and you won't even know what you have lost.
Backup or Weep:
Backups are incredibly important. You can save yourself a hell of a headache, wasted time and frustration if you back up regularly
. Can you afford to lose all the time and effort you spent on collecting documents, information, the pictures of special occasions, etc?
Internet Explorer downloads
When you download files, Windows usually saves them in the Downloads folder, which is located under your user name in the Users folder on the drive where Windows is installed (for example C:/users/your name/downloads).
When you are saving the file, save it to your "C:/MyDocuments/Downloads" folder.
Some different types of files are saved to different folders by default. For example, if you right-click a picture on a webpage and then choose Save Picture As from the menu, the picture will be saved to the Pictures folder by default. If you're not sure where the file was saved, you can search for it from the Start menu.
If you are using Firefox as your browser, do the following:At the very top of your page you have File, Edit, View, History...Tools, Help. Click on "Tools". In the drop-down menu select "Options" and the tab "Main". Halfway down the page you will see something that says "Save files to" click on this option and then browse your folders and select "C:MyDocuments/Downloads" That you have just created (see "My Suggestions" above.
Firefox will in future download everything to this folder automatically. Firefox is a much better Internet browser than Internet Explorer, and much faster.
