How to make Personal Computer secure?

Follow The steps below to make your personal computer SECURE :-

Step 1
The first thing that you should have is a user name and a password specific to your account. If you have several users create several accounts. You can do that in your control panel under user accounts.

Step 2
You should have some virus protection or anti-spyware program. There are many. I have used McAfee, Norton and Trend Micro. I found that they were all very user friendly. If your are unsure what one is best for you do a comparison online there are many sites that review software. You should keep your security software up to date by downloading the updates regularly.

Step 3
On all of your passwords you should have a combination of letters and numbers. At least one of the letters should be capitalized. This will make it harder for hackers to phish your password and get into your account.

Step 4
Dont tell anyone your password. And of course change your password at least once a year probably six months would be more safe.

Step 5
Set your security software to perform weekly or bi-weekly scans that way you dont have to think about it.

Step 6
Dont open any email you are unsure about. Dont go through the bulk mail or spam you are only looking for problems and should find something else to do.

How to remove Trojan Horse Virus manually ?

Trojan Horse Virus
Manual Remove Trojan horse

Disable the System Restore feature on your computer. If this is still turned on, the system will restore any deleted files, including those infected by the Trojan horse. This can be done by going into the My Computer file and looking for the Performance option. Then select File System, Troubleshooting and Disable System Restore.

Turn on the computer and run it in safe mode. Restart the computer and when the words begin appearing on the screen, press the F8 key. This takes you to a new screen, where you'll select the safe mode option. Let the computer start as it regularly would before you continue.

Go into the Control Panel by clicking on the "Start" button at the bottom left-hand side of the screen and looking for the Control Panel. Select the Add or Remove Programs icon. The computer should then show a list of all programs existing on your system.

Look for programs that include Spyware or adware on your computer and select the Remove program option. Many users have found it helpful to look for programs that they didn't install and those that were installed when they downloaded a game or other program onto their computer.

Open the Windows System folder and delete all files that include the Trojan virus extension. Go through the list twice to make sure you removed all virus files. Then restart the computer in normal mode and check the folder again. If all the files are gone, you'll be ready to move on. If there are any remaining, remove them and restart the computer.
