How to Prevent Dangerous Web Surfing on Computer

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

People love surfing on Internet because they can even find everything they need on Internet. But, not every one pays attention to a fact that some websites can make your computer dangerous by virus infection, for example, adult sites. You may think the famous and respectable websites are safe. That is not the truth. Once these respectable sites have been hijacked, they will get you in trouble too. Then, you may ask: how to prevent dangerous web surfing on computer?

If you are surfing some infected or dangerous web sites, the Private option in some browsers like InPrivate in IE, Private Browsing in Firefox, or Incognito Mode in Chrome can do nothing for you to prevent your computer from danger. Because in Private mode, the browser will never record the history of sites you have visited, but your visited sites will do harm on your computer during your browsing. What’s worse, it may make your computer slow or crash.

The following tips will help you to reduce the possibility of being infected by dangerous sites:

  1. Install some security software or antivirus software on your computer, and keep them update regularly.
  2. Update your browser to the latest version
  3. If there is a warm message from your browser that the page you are trying to open is dangerous, stop visiting it, even though the site is known as a trustable one.
  4. Scan your hard disk by computer security software regularly, for example, weekly.

Just take several minutes and few clicks on your mouse, and then you can keep your computer safe and running smoothly by preventing dangerous web surfing on compute!
