How To Build An Antivirus FirewallSaturday, February 14, 2009Original aticles, software, and tutorials at http://antivirus-firewall-software.org/If you have ever had a serious malware or virus infection on your Windows computer, you know the problems it can cause.� Compromised security, damage to your programs and files, unpredictable browser behavior, etc.Probably one of your dissappointments was that the antivirus or anti-malware software you were using did not protect your computer from the infection.In this series of short articles we will show you how to build an antivirus firewall which is designed to protect your computer from viruses, malware, adware, and spyware.� The level of protection for your computer will be far higher than anything you have used before.� Once you complete all of the steps we show you in the articles, your computer will be fully immunized and protected from viruses and malware with a firewall that runs five levels deep. It will be almost impossible for a virus or malware infection to take hold on your computer.It doesn't take much time to build the firewall, and the nice thing is, it doesn't have to be expensive. You don't have to be a computer genius, either.� The easy-to-use software we will tell you about will do it all for you.Building the firewall consits of five steps:1. Using an effective antivirus program.� When we say "effective" we mean a program that has tested from 97% to 99% effective at finding and eliminating known virus threats. Objective testing for antivirus software is done by websites like AV Comparatives.� http://www.av-comparatives.org2. Combining the antivirus program with a good anti-malware program, like the ones that are recommended by Spyware Warrior�� http://www.spywarewarrior.com/� Many of the anti-malware programs now come with an antivirus engine or database, which makes them extremely effective when combined with a primary antivirus program, and the best thing is, they are completely compatible. This means that when you combine the right programs you get virtually double the protection of a single software program..3. Using an effective firewall, configured correctly.� The Windows firewall is perfectly adequate, provided the settings are correct. A third-party firewall can also be used.4. Building a bullet proof web browser. The one we recommend is Firefox, with ad-ons like AdBlock Plus, Web Of Trust (WOT), and perhaps a script blocker.5. Last, but certainly not least, is the development of an effective hosts file in the Windows System 32 folder and the addition of a good restricted sites list and blocked activeX controls list to protect internet explorer.Once again, you won't have to do much here, the software will do it all for you.� The entire process is easy.The place to begin is with the correct combination of antivirus and anti-malware software.� It is important to combine the software carefully, as a bad combination can do more harm than good and possibly damage your system. There is a video tutorial and list of safe combinations at http://antivirus-firewall-software.org/list.aspxIn our next article we willtake a quick look at firewalls and their correct configurations.Author: Robert Bass for Antivirus Firewall Software Org.
