Customize Internet security settings in Windows®
About the ways to customize the Internet security settings in Windows operated PC and the measures to avoid the commonly arising issues
Internet has become a dangerous place where the malware and infections are spread out in plenty of different ways. Thus the user who is accessing the Internet from the system should be protected. The Windows Operating System provides such an option to the users through various security options provided. The Windows Firewall is one among the security features offered by the user. The user can customize the various options upon the Firewall through the 'Control Panel' or through the 'Network Connections' window. The exceptions, blocking options, level of the security, etc. can be changed at the firewall settings option. The browser settings can also be configured according to the user needs upon the Windows systems for providing protection against the Internet attacks. The Windows systems are also compatible with most of the security software for the Internet security and thus the user can install such options on the system. Most of those tools are capable of providing the customization options for the users.
Discussed below are the measures to avoid commonly arising issues:
- Turn on the firewall
- Use Internet security tools
- Enable the browser security options
Turn on the firewall
The Firewall option should be turned on in the system while accessing the Internet. The firewall security would enable perfect protection for the users. The issues that would arise commonly with the Internet security are intruder’s activities and the identity thefts. The firewall can block such unwanted users from entering the Windows systems. Exceptions can also be enabled upon the system for providing access to certain websites and users.
Use Internet security tools
The use of Internet Security tools like Panda Internet security software would help the users in preventing various Internet security issues. The attacks of malware through various websites, identity thefts, intruder attacks, pop-ups, frequent advertisements, email viruses, etc are the commonly arising issues. The tools that provide complete protection can ensure the safety of the Windows systems through their installation in the system.
The user can avoid the infections and malfunctions through the Internet by configuring the browser settings also. The 'Security' tab at the browser application under the 'Tools' option would provide such option.
