1. Foiling E-Mail Viruses

E-mail is your computer’s gateway to the rest of the world, and this gateway is what makes your e-mail one of the prime vectors for the distribution of computer viruses and other evils. Fortunately, Windows Mail provides options that can help you detect and prevent the introduction of viruses onto your computer.

Protect Yourself and Others

1. In Windows Mail, choose Options from the Tools menu, and click the Security tab of the Options dialog box.

2. Select the Restricted Sites Zone (More Secure) option if it isn’t already selected.

3. Select this check box, if it isn’t already selected, for protection from programs already on your computer that might use your e-mail to infect other computers.

4. Select this check box, if it isn’t already selected, to enable inspection of the file type of an attachment and to block any attachment that could contain a virus.

5. Select this check box, if it isn’t already selected, to stop your message from requesting additional material from an external server.

6. On the Read tab, select this check box if you want to prevent any hidden code in HTML-formatted messages from gaining access to your computer, provided you don’t mind losing the formatting of HTML messages. Click OK.

Tip

To create even more secure e-mail, you can digitally sign and encrypt your messages, and provide that digital ID to those who’ll be receiving your secure mail. To obtain a digital ID, click the Get Digital ID button on the Security tab of the Options dialog box.



2. Installing Critical Fixes

Microsoft continues to issue updates to Windows, fixing problems and vulnerabilities as they’re discovered. To keep your computer running smoothly and to avoid new types of attacks, it’s important that you install any critical updates that Microsoft issues as soon as they’re available. Fortunately, the Windows Update feature does most of the work for you.

Configure Your Downloading

1. Click the Start button, choose Control Panel from the Start menu, click Check For Updates in the Security section to display the Windows Update window, and review the status of your updates. If you’re not signed up to receive updates for all the Microsoft products installed on your computer, click the Get Updates For More Products button, and sign up.

2. If the computer hasn’t checked for updates recently and isn’t set for automatic updating, click Change Settings.

3. Specify the way you want to receive updates, if at all.

4. Select these check boxes if you want to include recommended updates as well as critical fixes in the downloads, and if you want to receive updates for other Microsoft products.

5. Click OK when you’ve finished.

6. If you chose to be notified when updates have been downloaded or are available for download, click the message or the download icon in the notification area of the taskbar to install your updates.
