No Fix, No Fee Guarantee

Using the internet you can very quickly communicate with friends and relatives from afar-- but when staying in touch with relatives don't forget your internet safety reflexes.  Instead of just accepting whatever updates are offered to you, we recommend that you take a minute to pause before you click ok and think if it is a program you use that is wanting to update or just a cleverly disguised malware vector.  In addition to watching updates being recommended to you, you should also be cautious when installing new software.  Oftentimes when installing free software from the web you will be able to choose between the "express" installation options and the "custom" or "advanced" installation options.  Users clicking "express" are presented with few choices, but by selecting the "custom" or "advanced" options you are often given a choice of whether or not to install additional programs that are often installed without a users' knowledge and can lead to all kinds of unwanted side-effects.  Google is notorious for secretly installing Chrome in this fashion when users go to install Adobe Reader or Flash Player, and although it isn't technically spyware or malware I for one don't like things getting installed on my computer unless I specifically go looking for it.  You don't have to be a genius to use the advanced options so don't be intimidated by it and get in the practice of doing so when you have an opportunity.  It's a lot easier to do that than it is to uninstall each of the 3 or 4 programs that snuck in when you tried to install that absolutely essential online video player that you probably shouldn't have been installing.
