Tips for the average computer user
A common practice to keep your computer running smooth is learning to safely navigate across the web. Using common and trusted sites is one way to ensure a good computing experience. Avoid "Giveaway!" and "You're a Winner!" websites and advertisements, also avoid downloading any programs that you are not familiar with; this is where the bulk of adware and spyware come from. Make sure you are up to date with the latest virus protection and system updates.
