Finding The Perfect Anti Spyware Software

Finding The Perfect Anti Spyware Software



Finding the​ Perfect Anti-spyware Software
Fortunately,​ there are generous individuals and organizations who
have the​ facilities to​ review the​ work of​ the​ Anti-spyware
developers and make the​ results available for all of​ us everyday
users of​ the​ Internet .​
The challenge for us is​ to​ know where to​ go for these results and
recommendations,​ and to​ know which of​ the​ anti-spyware and
anti-virus programs to​ use on​ our computers .​
There are many web masters,​ newsletter,​ and Blog publishers who
constantly monitor the​ results published by the​ anti-spyware
reviewers .​
Most of​ them pass these information alerts on​ to​ their
readers and subscribers,​ often offering suggestions and advice
based on​ their own personal experiences and expertise .​
A real benefit for us is​ that most of​ the​ top rated anti-spyware and
anti-virus programs are free,​ or​ available in​ Trial or​ Demo versions .​
All we need do is​ find out where to​ get them .​
But first,​ we need to​
find the​ reviewers who post the​ alerts .​
If subscribing to​ newsletters and Blogs isn't your usual surfing
activity,​ you​ can do a​ search for security alert newsletters or​
security alert blogs .​
For example,​ do a​ Yahoo search for security
alert newsletter (use the​ quotation marks to​ get the​ most
appropriate search results) .​
Do the​ same for a​ Yahoo or​ Google
search on​ security alert blog .​
(Blogs are web logs) .​
Investigate the​ first and second pages of​ the​ search results and
select three or​ four of​ the​ listings as​ a​ starting point .​
Many
newsletters are published on​ a​ monthly schedule and may not
contain the​ most current information .​
Some are published weekly .​
They may be better choices .​
Blogs are usually much more current since Blog authors often post
their information every couple of​ days - some even on​ a​ daily
basis .​
Blogs are riding a​ major wave of​ popularity .​
For the​ serious
searchers of​ current information,​ this is​ a​ great benefit .​
There
aren't as​ many Blog sites as​ web sites yet,​ so it's often much
easier to​ find the​ information you're looking for .​
Many Blog authors make their publications available for RSS (Real
Simple Syndication) readers .​
If you​ have added a​ RSS reader to​
your browser,​ you​ can get up-to-the-minute alerts presented to​
you automatically .​
You don't need to​ go looking for them .​
Many updated browsers,​ like Netscape 8 and Firefox include this
feature as​ part of​ their package .​
Expect the​ newest Internet
Explorer to​ have a​ RSS Reader,​ too .​
Don't be overwhelmed by all of​ the​ information you​ get .​
After doing
these searches and reviews once or​ twice,​ it​ will be a​ simple task
to select what you​ need to​ keep yourself current .​
For starters,​ it​ is​ generally accepted practice to​ select and use at​
least two anti-spyware programs .​
Choose from among the​ two or​
three that receive the​ highest recommendations and ratings from
the newsletter and Blog authors .​
Be especially watchful for and
select one of​ those programs that provides 'Real Time' monitoring .​
(Which means that they monitor and catch any incoming bugs that
may try to​ infect your machine while you​ are online) .​
Downloading instructions are nearly always present with the​
reviews .​
If not,​ you'll find sites like c|net.com to​ be a​ good source
for download links .​
Just don't forget to​ check for and update your security software .​
The spyware writers won't give you​ a​ break if​ you​ do.
