General Computer Questions
What is a download?
To download means to copy (or transfer) data from one computer to another, usually over the Internet. Popular kinds of downloads include music, videos, apps, and programs. Browsers and toolbars are also downloads. Downloads can be free or cost money, such as a 99-cent song downloaded from iTunes.
How do I install a program and avoid the additional bloatware/adware?
Read each dialog box carefully, as there will usually be a way to opt-out of additional software. Be sure to uncheck any extra install box options.
How do I avoid downloading toolbars/add-ons?
Many toolbars and add-ons can be avoided by opting out of extra software included in a program’s installation (see above). Using a strong antivirus program and safe Internet browsing practices will also protect your computer against these annoying downloads. Finally, running regular antivirus scans will alert you of downloaded toolbars and add-ons which are potentially harmful, and give you the option to remove them.
I already have an antivirus program, isn’t that enough?
hen it comes to antivirus programs, it’s all about quality. Some antivirus programs update more often than others, adding new malware to their database on a daily basis. Different programs offer different protection — do you know whether your antivirus also covers trojans, adware, and spyware?
Even if you have an antivirus program, there’s no substitute for regular tune-ups from an expert Technology Advisor. Along with preventative care, proactive service is key to a holistic maintenance program.
Why would I need to backup my files?
We all know it’s never a good idea to put all your eggs in one basket. Fortunately, in the digital world, your entire basket can be copied and stored in case you ever need it. If your computer is damaged, lost or stolen, it can be very hard to recover precious photos and important financial documents without a backup in place.
Frequent backups prevent data loss, and Data Backup service sends your data to a strong, secure cloud, so you can recover it any time disaster strikes.
