Backup is your best friend. Keep backups of your system on a regular basis to offline storage & keep those safe. https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/136226-backup-software/



It is not enough to just have a security program installed. Each pc user needs to practice daily safe computer and internet use.


Best practices & malware prevention:

  • Follow best practices when browsing the Internet, especially on opening links coming from untrusted sources.
  • First rule of internet safety: slow down & think before you "click".
  • Never click links without first hovering your mouse over the link and seeing if it is going to an odd address ( one that does not fit or is odd looking or has typos).
  • Free games & free programs are like "candy". We do not accept them from "strangers".
  • Never open attachments that come with unexpected ( out of the blue ) email no matter how enticing.
  • Never open attachments from the email itself. Do not double click in the email. Always Save first and then scan with antivirus program.
  • Pay close attention when installing 3rd-party programs. It is important that you pay attention to the license agreements and installation screens when installing anything off of the Internet. If an installation screen offers you Custom or Advanced installation options, it is a good idea to select these as they will typically disclose what other 3rd party software will also be installed.
  • Take great care in every stage of the process and every offer screen, and make sure you know what it is you're agreeing to before you click "Next".
  • Use a Standard user account rather than an administrator-rights account when "surfing" the web.
  • See more info on Corrine's SecurityGarden Blog http://securitygarden.blogspot.com/p/blog-page_7.html
  • Don't remove your current login. Just use the new Standard-user-level one for everyday use while on the internet.
  • Do a Windows Update.
  • Make certain that Automatic Updates is enabled.
  • https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12373/windows-update-faq
  • Keep your system and programs up to date. Several programs release security updates on a regular basis to patch vulnerabilities. Keeping your software patched up prevents attackers from being able to exploit them to drop malware.

Stay safe.  I wish you all the best.     😎
