You are about to discover how  this report is likely worth a lot more than the $162.50 I paid for some of this information.When you consider the value of your data and  the time and aggravation it will save you, this information is priceless. I hope this helps you and your business.

I just returned from the computer store that I have used for years to help me select new equipment, repair computers and provide advice on security. It is small shop about a mile from my home. I know the owner and senior technician well. I trust their work and advice.

Having owned a business with technical people I also know that sometimes things just don’t work right even when experienced competent people work on fixing them. This seems to be true for most things.

Problem:

My main PC caught a disease. I could tell when ads started popping up while visiting my regular business and news sites. The ads were bypassing my pop up blockers. I was disappointed my anti-spyware program didn’t prevent this.

After running a couple programs,  I concluded I was not able to get rid of the spyware. I took the machine up the street and let my computer experts work on it. Like other professional service businesses they charge for their time. When they called and said all was fine I took the patient home after  paying the  $162.50 bill.  I thought it was a bit high, but they addressed the problem the same day I called.

Well the patient wasn’t cured which was a bit upsetting after having dropped the $162.50. Since it was now Saturday night I looked at the paper Richard (the computer tech) gave me and noticed a list of programs I should be using to prevent viruses and spyware. One of those programs was a spyware software program already running on one of  my other machine which was working without a glitch. (I don’t know why I wasn’t running it on all my machines. I am now.)

I installed the software and ran the sweep. Wow – I still had a critical condition on my machine. In fact, here is the report:

Items Found: 62
Traces Found: 151
Risk Rating: Critical

In a flash all of that was fixed and no more evidence of spyware on my PC. All of it is FREE except the spyware program that fixed my problems. The cost is $29.95 for a license that runs a year. Very well worth it when you look at the alternative of having to take your PC into a shop.

The List  (According to the tech., all programs can be downloaded free at www.download.com

AVG free edition: Anti Virus www.free.grisoft.com I use this program and like it a lot
Spybot: Anti Spyware..Free www.spybot.com Just installed it.
Spysweeper: Anti Spyware www.spysweeper.com There is a free verson but I found if you have a problem the licensed version fo $29.95 is well worth it. Highly Recommended
Adaware: Anti Spyware, Mailware www.lavasoft.com No experience with this program
Ewido: Anti Spyware, Mailware www.ewido.com No experience with this program

Regarding this list: you will find a lot of information of anti spyware, anti mailware and anti virus software on line. The above is what one technician is recommending. Personally I have great results with AVG and Spysweeper.

Wait There’s More:

Backup Your Files: There are a number of alternatives for this. For about 4 years now I have been using Pocket PC which is a portable hard drive. It is small and has a lot of space plus it connects to my USB port. I really like it but have found the need for more space so I am using another model. Key point is: the backup is what is important. There are quite a number of  quality portable hard drives on the market. Don’t over analyze, just get the one with the most space you can afford and has the size you can travel with if you choose.

Firefox: the more I use this browser the more I like it. Download it free at http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/ There seems to be fewer security issues with Firefox.

Access Codes: user names and passwords to all programs and machines need to documented and stored in more than one place. If you are a business, I recommend at least two people have this documentation. If you are an entrepreneur I still recommend two people have this information. Yes I know all about RoboForm. I use it and recommend it. My first point remains.

Customer Database Records (Your List): I know one internet marketer who takes a copy of his list to his safety deposit box at his bank once a week. He understands how valuable this is. Alternatives include having the data on multiple machines and backup storage devices and the list must be copied and stored offsite on a schedule that makes sense based on how rapidly your list changes. NOTE: if you use third party membership and autoresponder software, you must download your list regularly into your computer and then follow your computer backup procedures.

This report will only help you if you take action!!!  Come to think of it everything seems to be dependent on making choices that will help you and your business then taking action.  You now know, the rest is up to you.

  1. I actually love the RoboForm software myself. I use it all of the time and it takes all of the menial everyday tasks that I have to perform on my computer daily and shortens them extremely! What once took me fifteen minutes to complete now takes me only one second because RoboForm does the same task with just one click. In fact I wrote a Report about a lot of RoboForm’s capabilities for use that aren’t even touched on in the User’s Manual for RoboForm. You can get that Report here:

    There is also a FREE version of RoboForm that you can download on this web page, just to test the RoboForm software out for yourself! I highly recommend it!

  2. I’m a big fan of online backup for data protection. Not only is it completely automatic, but your data is safely stored offsite so it provides an essential part of any disaster recovery plan.
