Description

If you take your PC to a computer shop to get a virus cleaned it can cost anywhere from $50 to several hundred dollars. Here is a link to the Geek Squad's page on virus cleanup's so you can get an idea of what prices they charge. Geek Squad Prices

This course is designed to give you the tools and strategies to surf safely online without the fear of getting a virus and all of the negative consequences that can stem from getting a malware infection. The steps detailed in this course will equip you with the ability to explore the online world confidently knowing that your system is protected and your files will be safe and secure.

Most people will purchase an anti-virus program with their new PC and think that they are protected from online hazards, but unfortunately that is far from the truth.

I have worked on thousands of PC's in my day to day work infected by malware and they were "protected" by pretty much every brand of AV software available. Nothing will give you 100 percent protection but the methods I go over in this course give you a level of protection and security well beyond what the average user is aware of.

Here is a link to a recent article form PCWorld that highlights the current threat from viruses. PCWorld Article


By following the steps in this course you can avoid the hassle of getting a virus then having to pay possibly hundreds of dollars to get it removed. Join over 850 students currently taking the course.

The 5 Main Strategies are:

  • Typical precautions like antivirus and antimalware applications.
  • Multi-Tiered Backup Strategy
  • Virtual Machines for system isolation
  • Bootable USB Flash Drive for further system isolation
  • Setup secondary PC for online activites

This was a well thought out and presented overview of what to do to protect your computer. Every computer user needs to know this info. I would highly recommend this to everyone who uses the internet. - Jodi Smith
