    Online security is essential and securing your computer is critical. Windows defender
    alone can not defend your system to a 100%; also other software can not secure your privacy
    fully. Here I'm going to introduce you essential tools that can help you to make your system
    more secure. It is completely off topic, but I want that you understand that nowadays online
    porn sites use black hat techniques to get your private information.

    1) Install only proven anti-virus software
    With good protection, you are less vulnerable to viruses. I've tested many many many anti-viruses
    Software and tested how secure they were. So I can tell you what really good software
    is!

    1.1) Avast
    Get avast. It's so hard to exploit! It is a pro-active anti-virus scanner which includes a sandboxie.
    Malicious software can be run in this sandbox.

    1.2) Malwarebytes
    MB is not a pro-active anti-virus scanner. So it does not run in the background which speeds up
    your computer.

    There is no better software than those 2. Trust me! Try out trails. Trails are strong enough
    to protect you. You can buy premium too they are not so expensive.

    Get both because Malwarebytes has a better algorithm to detect viruses and adds new viruses
    Faster to the database. Avast is great as a pro-active anti virus.

    2) What vulnerabilities out there currently?

    2.1) Crypto Miner
    Currently, there are many crypto miners our there that get installed on you computer
    automatically when visiting individual websites.

    2.3) Rats
    Remote administration tools are the highest risk. Those tools include huge packages
    of tools that can leak everything from you privacy including:
    - Saved password
    - Full access to all your folders/images/videos
    - They can create a new user on your windows machine and login into that remotely
    and use your computer like sitting physically in front of it
    - Keylogging
    - View you by webcam and additionally listen to your microphone (That's why some people
    but a sticker on their notebook-webcam)
    - View your screen and watch you what you're doing
    - Control mouse/keyboard
    - And much much more. Pretty interesting, huh?

    Rats are very aggressive!

    2.3) Stand-alone keyloggers
    They get your password stored in your browser. They send them to the hacker
    by email or log them on an offshore server in a Database´.

    2.4) How to prevent getting keylogged?
    Never store passwords in the browser. If you have many passwords stored in firefox,
    chrome, opera or whatever browser you're using they can be easily copied and sent to
    a hackers e-Mail inbox.

    Get www.keepassx.org%2F&usg=AOvVaw0Ael0nUdo4at524fdNxlBw">KeePassX. It's a password manager which can store your login-data securely. You
    can unlock them with a master password and simply use ctr+c to copy the password or
    ctr+b to copy the username.

    2.4) Botnets
    This is a small file running in the background. Mostly they're used to infect many many
    many computers and build a Bot-Network. Those networks are used to shut down websites
    by DDOs attacks.

    3) Additional important Tipps


    3.1) Mac/Linux is secure but not really
    Linux or Mac is very safe but not to a 100%

    3.2) Clear Windows AppData files
    Click start enter "run" hit enter ant type %AppData% and hit enter again. Clear every file OR files that you are not familiar
    with. Most virus stubs have strange names in AppData folder like spotify.exe or test.exe those are 100%
    Viruses. Clear all .exe forum you AppData Folder

    3.3) Check your Autostart programs
    Deactivate all autostart programs you don't know. That additionally speeds up your PC. It can be that some
    applications will activate them self again because they are viruses^^

    3.4) Virustotal
    When you download something, and you're not sure if the file is secure upload it to
    VirusTotal.net and scan it. Always unpack zip archives!

    4) Conclusion

    Nobody is 100% safe, and hackers are still one step wider that anti-virus software. Because merely they
    create the viruses!

    troubles with you PC feel free to contact me or ask in this forum =)
