Download Sites Could Lead To Viruses If Not Careful
Download sites could lead to viruses if the person downloading is not careful. It is fun and exciting to find new things to use and explore on download sites. There is also the element of money as times are tight for some families that subsist on a budget. Finding freeware available for download or a free copy of something highly desired can often temporarily override good sense.
Make sure before downloading anything that it is checked for bad content by whatever safety measures are available on the computer. There are also plenty of free programs on the Internet that can check for viruses and malware in files before a download is started. In the case of new computer users such as younglings or those who have never used a computer before make sure to teach these folks not to select yes on every pop up offered as a free download.
Better yet in the course of creating user profiles and setting controls on user accounts, tighten the security level of pop ups allowed, downloads permitted, and websites visited to guard the home or business personal computer until the person learns how to judge accurately and exercise that judgment in practice.
