By Melanie

One of the most annoying things that can happen to my computer would be a hacker stole all my personal information. Once a hacker attacks your computer, they can ruin your computer in matter of seconds. They can download all your personal data to a computer or flash drive. Now, let’s talk about my blog about 8 Tips on Avoiding Hackers …

8 Avoid Downloading from Torrent Websites

Torrent websites are major back doors to viruses, malware and Trojans. You can also get some bad adware that makes you click on unwanted pop ups. These programs that invade your computer can ruin your hard drive, erase .dll files and change windows settings. There are even programs that allow hackers to get your information through key logging your typed keys. This means it tracks your websites you visit and give them all the passwords to everything that was visited.

7 Download a Firewall

A good firewall program is needed for any computer that uses a Windows OS. Firewalls can block unwanted activity that you can’t see harming your computer. Hackers can move in fast and attack and then no traces of them is found. A firewall will get them every time and it will show the intruders IP. This can help you tell your service provider of who is attacking your computer. They can block them, but the firewall will do that if you tell it too.

Links that have no details to where they go means automatic trouble. This can be a small file that is downloaded without your consent. This could be a tracker that allows them to attack the computer and provide them with all the passwords to your personal information.

1 Avoid Free Download Anything

If it’s free on the Internet and it’s free to download.. It might be a virus. There are not many websites that give download software free without a price.
