Step 1: Virus protection.
Virus protection is a must have. We suggest the following 2 antivirus programs from most secure to least.
- ESET – NOD32 for Home or Business (BEST)
- Microsoft’s Security Essentials (FREE)
Step 2: Backup.
While most corporate environments provide backup services, you should have a copy for yourself too. At home, what would happen in case of a fire or theft of your computer.
We always recommend an emergency backup copy. Large FLASH drives (sometimes called THUMB Drives) or Western Digital backups provide additional security.

Step 3: Malware, Spyware protection.
While these aren’t typically scanned by most antivirus programs, they are just as dangerous.
- Spybot Search and Destroy (Free)
- MalwareAntiBytes (Free)
Step 4: Monthly maintenance.
Just like a car, your computer needs constant care. Updates of virus protection, OS software, and more are crucial to getting the most of your computer. trueITpros, LLC recommends having a professional check of your computer every 30-90 days. Some software packages do exist, but unless you really understand what they are doing, we don’t recommend running them on your own.
