Malware problem (s) ? Is your PC infected with Malicious software ? Getting annoying pop-up warning messages ?

What is a malware problem ?
Malware comes in many different forms, but usually, it is a program or, a piece of code, that infiltrates your PC, usually, without your knowledge or, consent, that has been developed and is distributed with the intention of causing harm to your PC and or, stealing your private information or, for the purpose of using your PC to carry out certain nefarious activities.
How did my PC get malware infected ?
Usually, the first thing that the owner of a Malware infected PC wants to know. There are many ways that your PC can become infected with Malware and later in this article, I explain how and why your PC may have been infected with Malware and discuss the things that you can do to help you to avoid your PC becoming infected with Malware again in the future.
Malware problem - simple solution ?
No. The people who write or, distribute malware, usually, do so, with a specific task in mind, but then, there are those who take or, buy this code and modify it to do something else.
Whoever or, whatever, usually, their intention is to cause you a problem, steal your data or, use the malware to part you from your hard-earned cash !

A security solution for PCs - the 'newest tool' in the armoury of some of the major players in the PC security market

Malware problem
First published 05-03-2011
Nowadays, none of us would consider using our PC without up-to-date anti-virus/malware software and an active firewall in place, but just 'how' effective are these programs at detecting and stopping threats ?
To get some idea, I decided to read through the web sites of some of the leading anti-virus vendors (McAfee, AVG, Symantec etc.), but I just didn't have a spare day or, two, to sit and read through all the exclusion and get-out clauses in their terms and conditions - never mind trying to understand the meaning of some of them ! In the end, it was easy for me to draw a conclusion - you're not covered for anything at all !
Thinking about it, it's obvious ! How can your anti-virus/malware program protect your PC against a threat that they don't know about ? Simple, they can't !
If someone decides to infect your PC with 'something' (nowadays, it's usually malware) and they write and distribute the code to do it, and it's a brand new threat, your anti-virus/malware program will just let it straight through - why ? Because it doesn't know anything about it !
In the computer industry, this type of threat is known as the zero-day threat which is a term that many of our readers may have seen, but not necessarily understood - until now, that is.
Once a threat has been reported/detected, your anti-virus/malware vendor can work out how the malicious code is being distributed and what it is doing once it has infected your PC and work out a way to stop it. But, only once it has been reported/detected !
Once they have worked out how to stop it, they have to update their anti-virus/malware definitions and distribute the update to all their user's PCs. There's bound to be a time-lag in completing this process and whilst it is in the work-in-progress tray, user's PCs are being infected ! Not what we might expect from our anti- virus/malware vendor/program - there must be a better way !
Following a particularly successful promotion at the end of last year, www.trustware.com, a leader in security technologies, has decided to offer their BufferZone Pro PC security solution, free of charge to home users. Originally, it was a subscription service costing about £25 annually.
Trustware is a security solution for PCs that seems to be being adopted as the 'newest tool' in the armoury of some of the major players in the PC security market.
Interestingly, most of the vendors offering a similar solution to Trustware, only do so, in the paid-for versions of their products so, Trustware's free offer to home users is genuine and not to be sniffed at ! What is BufferZone, how does it work ?
If the information on this page is useful, you can recommend it to other people using this Google +1 button. Thank you !
On Trustware's web site, it says - "BufferZone creates an isolated environment called the Virtual Zone. The Virtual Zone "buffers" your PC from all forms of known or, unknown attacks that originate from the Internet and external devices. All of your private information is secured in a trusted and separated environment."
To infect your PC, a virus or, malware, usually modifies the data on your Hard Disk Drive and makes changes to your operating system's registry and when it does, the changes/damage can sometimes be irreparable without a Hard Disk Drive format and a full re-install of your operating system, hardware drivers and software.
BufferZone creates a virtual zone on your computer where you can surf the net, visit web sites, download files and do your internet banking in a separate environment, allowing you unlimited freedom to enjoy all Internet activities without the fear of external threats.
If during such a session, you do encounter a threat of some sort, BufferZone insulates your PC against the threat. Viruses, bots, worms, Trojan Horses, phishing, keyloggers, spyware and other malicious code are prevented from covertly installing on your PC.
The threat cannot make any changes to your Hard Disk Drive or, your operating systems registry ! Your PC is protected - even zero-day threats !
