CryptoLocker is a type of malicious software that renders your computer entirely unusable by encrypting all of your files. It then demands monetary payment before access to your computer is returned.
The Internet and social networks are incredible – they allow us to connect with one another in a way we have never been able to before. But in many instances, they also propose a threat. You see, we trust our friends and contacts. Therefore, whenever a friend shares something they read or use on a social network, we are much more inclined to check it out. So what do you do to prevent becoming infected with malware via social networks?
Security suites are a big deal. There are so many avenues of attack and you may one day find your computer buckling under the weight of malware and viruses. In the latter half of last year, I actually reviewed Lavasoft’s Ad-Aware Pro as part of MakeUseOf’s Rewards Program. But here’s our offer this week: we’re giving away 25 copies of Ad-Aware Pro 10.5 worth a total of $900 for FREE!
The latest version of Lavasoft Ad-Aware, Ad-Aware Pro 10.5, has been a popular part of our Rewards program all through last year, and was also featured in several giveaways in which you had a chance to win a free copy of the security suite. Didn’t get lucky last time? We’re now offering you another chance to get a 1-year license for Ad-Aware Pro for Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8. All in all, we’re giving away 10 copies of Ad-Aware Pro worth $360 for FREE!
