A few Things on Internet Security

The most common reason for getting a callout for a computer repair is inadequate internet security. This is a bit of a pity as there is nothing wrong with the hardware and the whole situation could easily have been prevented. One of the most common computer repair scenarios seen is clients using the internet security that comes pre installed on a system. In most cases it simply is a poor quality program, even though the retail version may still be expensive. The second most common scenario we find is clients using a free antivirus program to protect the entire PC. Viruses are one of the less common forms of 'nasty's' these days and Trojans and spyware and the like are far more common and very destructive, to combat these a full internet security suite really is required as having seperate antivirus and spyware rarely seems to do the trick these days. Even worse, for real trouble free computing, you really need the best internet security suite at any given time, as the inferior ones rarely to the job adequately. By doing the job adequately I mean letting precious little through for the duration of the license of the software, usually a period of 12 months , so no reinstall of windows is required. So our advice is (obviously) to get a Jim's IT consultant to review the internet security every 12 months (when the license needs renewing) in order to be running the best software available, believe me this will change. It's cheaper than Computer Repairs involving the operating system. Also as a word of caution many people are caught out buying internet security suites at large stores which sell attractive retail boxes. The people in these stores merely need to sell software and don't have to install it or maintain the computer or do computer repairs. It also matters little if the Internet Security is inadequate, therefore it almost always is...
