Free online business advertising

Several of my clients run small or home businesses and don't have their own websites. Despite this they want their businesses to be found on the internet. Is this possible. Yes, of course it is and I've helped several of my clients to advertise their businesses online for free. This made me think that I should write something about how to get free online business advertising. So I've done just that. If you want to know more about how to advertise your business online for free even if you don't have a website, take a look at free online business advertising.

Preventing Spyware

Don't let your computer get infected by Spyware.
Spyware is one form of malware (a global name for things you don't want to find on your computer). Spyware is usually written for commercial gain. Once it is on your computer you will find that your computer slows down and the internet can become unusable as your web browser is sent to unwanted sites, or unwanted tool bars appear in your browser. Older web browsers might also allow unwanted pop-up ads

How to Prevent Spyware
Make sure you are using the latest version of your web browser. The definition of spyware is flexible. Antispyware software is built into most internet security suites. If you use a security suite, check to see what is provided with yours. If it doesn't have antispyware software then install reliable antispyware software.

Use antispyware that has been recommended. (If in doubt - do an internet search for a product BEFORE downloading it. See if you can find any reviews or recommendations or avoidance stories.)
