I have an interesting requirement for a new software. My parents have access to a computer through which they browse YouTube sang use Skype for video calling. They rarely use other applications. I am curious in knowing whether there is an application already available for the security of the PC when the user itself is naive in computer usage. My parents do not understand and they just click on still images which look like Skype or YouTube. My request for you is to suggest the best possible secure mode on which a user can operate upon so that even is user wants to affect PC it will be impossible
What is the safest way to browse (elders are browsing)
The best option here would be to download any of the hundreds of free anti-virus software. Set it up to run regular scans as well as auto-updates. If there is a detected virus you can then quarantine it and deal with it yourself from there. Skype and YouTube are very prestigious companies and the chance of the computer contracting a virus from either is very low. Additional security can be added such as increasing the firewall and requesting the computer to ask permissions for certain actions. On top of all this you can create a separate user account on the pc and limit just that user to certain functions.
