A computer user should remain diligent and follow a​ few simple steps to​ protect against the​ threat of​ a​ virus:
1 .​
Evaluate your current computer security system .​
With the​ threat of​ a​ new generation of​ viruses able to​ attack in​ a​ multitude of​ ways,​ the​ approach of​ having just one antivirus software version has become outdated .​

2 .​
Only install antivirus software created by a​ well-known,​ reputable company .​

Because new viruses erupt daily,​ it​ is​ important that you​ regularly update your antivirus software
3 .​
Make it​ a​ habit to​ always scan all new programs or​ files no matter from where they originate.
4 .​
Exercise caution when opening binary,​ Word,​ or​ Excel documents of​ unknown sources especially if​ they were received during an​ online chat or​ as​ an​ attachment to​ an​ email .​

5 .​
Perform regular backups in​ case your system is​ corrupted .​
It may be the​ only way to​ recover your data if​ infected.
