    5 Critical Steps to Protecting Your Computer on the Internet - To turn on...


    (Page 3 of 6 )

    To turn on automatic updates in earlier versions of Windows XP, click on the Start menu, click Control Panel and then double-click on System. On the "Automatic Updates" tab, click the option to "Automatically download the updates and install them on the schedule I specify."

    To turn them on in Windows 2000, click on Start, click Control Panel and then double-click on Automatic Updates. Again, click the option to "automatically download the updates and install them on the schedule I specify."

    Now when Microsoft releases updates, they will be downloaded for you automatically and Windows will tell you when they are ready to be installed.

    3. Install & Update Antivirus Software

    Most new computers come with antivirus software these days. You might have Norton, McAfee, PC-Cillin or another brand. No matter what program you have, you will need to update it when you get connected to the Internet.

    It doesn't matter how new your computer is - there will be new viruses, and new updates for the antivirus software, since it was loaded.

    The exact process is different for each brand of antivirus program, but most of them will have an icon in the bottom right corner of your desktop, beside the time. The icon might be a picture of a shield (McAfee), a stethoscope (Norton) or something else.
