Tips

 

Antivirus protection is key today for any computer connecting to the internet. New2U Computers installs two antivirus programs on each computer we build, Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials.

How To Run Malwarebytes

Malwarebytes is a free program, but it is very effective against viruses that can infect your computer. It is important to make sure that the program is updated at least on a weekly basis and that virus scans are performed on at minimum a bi-weekly basis. The file to install Malware Bytes is included on each computer we sell or give to individuals with disabilities along with instructions for installing and running the program to protect your computer. Malware Bytes also has a paid version that will allow automatic updating of your computer. More information about the software can be found at:
