It is almost painful to watch some "com-

The most obvious goof is going to a search en-
gine to type in the address of the site they want
to go to. But folks are unaware of a lot of other
things they do that make the Internet more dif-
ficult than it needs to be. Mastering techniques
like opening links in new windows, using

access to a world of unlimited information in-

5: Virus/malware scanning
Much of typical computer maintenance is au-
tomated or unneeded at this point, but it is still
essential to understand how to check a system
for nasty bugs, spyware, and other malicious
applications. While the scanning tools come
with real-time monitors, something can still
slip onto the system before the scanner has the
right filter for it. So it's critical to know how
to trigger a manual virus/malware scan, as well
as how to use alternative systems, spot signs
of an infection, and other similar tasks.
