I’m running Windows XP SP3 and the install is a couple years old. The computer has been getting sluggish and error-prone lately, probably due to malware. I’ve decided the most painless fix is to do a reinstall of the WinXP system. After I’m done, what practices can I undertake to keep this computer free of problems?
Is it a good idea to have the Administrator account as a separate account which is never used?
What is the best Antivirus / Malware software money can buy?
What is the best backup solution for my current files? Do any of those online solutions work?
I should mention what I’m using now.
-AVG Free, doesn’t seem to catch much
A lot of PC-geeks use Sandboxie, or, Returnil, free or paid, which is a Virtual like environment, and or a Disk Drive Image Backup, if something goes wrong with your system you just install another Image Copy of Windows and you are good to go again…Other than the above, simply buy and use Kaspersky 2010, another PC-Geek favorite…
