Hi

1] Make sure that you use accounts with full administrative rights rarely. Eg: to install/update software, etc. For other tasks, make use of accounts that do not require any modify applications.

2] Turn on the firewalls on the home network.

3] Install an anti-software product. Ensure that it is frequently updated and is capable of performing regular automatic system scans.

However, these methods are not always effective. They sometimes fail and hence, a Trojan Horse is successful in entering the computer.

If you want to know the best way to protect your computer against Trojan horses, the very first thing you should do is to avoid downloading unknown programs from unknown sources especially coming from a website that offers contents for download related to cracking or hacking. Majority of the download in these kinds of websites, as for my experience, contains Trojan horses.

My computer once got infected with a worm but it happened only one time and it is because my antivirus is outdated and I haven’t updated it for like several months. You can use antivirus to protect your computer when you are connected to the internet. The problem with an antivirus is that you are only protected with the files you are downloading.

When a file is downloaded, it will be scanned automatically by the antivirus once you opened the file or went to the folder of the file. If a rouge website sends a malicious traffic to your computer, your antivirus will not detect it. With an Internet Security program, you are protected both with the contents you are downloading and the website you are visiting.

Also, when you have an antivirus or an Internet Security program, make sure that it is up-to-date so the virus signature database contains all the latest threats. For an antivirus program, you can try Norton Security Deluxe formerly Norton AntiVirus. You can also try ESET NOD32 Antivirus 8 for 32-bit or ESET NOD32 Antivirus 8 64-bit.

The latest is ESET NOD32 Antivirus 9 32-bit, ESET NOD32 Antivirus 9 64-bit. For Internet Security, you can try Norton Security Deluxe formerly Norton Internet Security. Also try ESET Smart Security 8 32-bit or ESET Smart Security 8 64-bit. The latest is ESET Smart Security 9 32-bit, ESET Smart Security 9 64-bit. The new Norton Security Deluxe is a combination of Norton AntiVirus and Norton Internet Security.
