Web browser add-ons

Web browser add-ons add functionality—like extra toolbars, animated mouse pointers, stock tickers, and pop-up ad blockers—to your Web browser to make browsing a little more fun or effective.
How add-ons end up on your computer
Many add-ons come from the Internet. Most add-ons from the Internet require that you give your permission before they are downloaded to your computer. Some, however, might be downloaded without your knowledge. This can happen if you previously gave permission for all downloads from a particular Web site or because the add-on was part of another program that you installed. Some add-ons are installed with Microsoft Windows.
Some add-ons can shut down your browser
Add-ons are typically fine to use, but sometimes they force Internet Explorer to shut down unexpectedly. This can happen if the add-on was poorly built or created for an earlier version of Internet Explorer.
Here's what you can do:
· Update it: If the add-on is an ActiveX component, you should check to see if the item has been updated.
· Disable it: If an add-on causes repeated problems, you can disable the add-on.
· Report it: When prompted, please allow the problem to be reported to Microsoft. This is completely anonymous and requires nothing from you but permission. These reports are used to improve our products and to encourage other companies to update and improve theirs.

· If (Not verified) is displayed in the Publisher column, the add-on itself is not digitally signed even though the program that installed it might be.

In today's computing world, you must prevent intentional intrusions into your computer and network that take the form of viruses and Trojan horses. Follow these tips to help prevent virus outbreaks and Trojan horse attacks.

For users:
  • Educate yourself about viruses and how they are commonly spread. You can unwittingly bring viruses into the network by loading a program from a source such as the Internet, online bulletin board, or e-mail attachments.
  • Learn the common signs of viruses: unusual messages that appear on your screen, decreased system performance, missing data, and inability to access your hard drive. If you notice any of these problems on your computer, run your virus-detection software immediately to minimize the chances of losing data. 
  • Programs on floppy disks may also contain viruses. Scan all floppy disks before copying or opening files from them, or starting your computer from them. 
  • Have at least one commercial virus-detection program and use it regularly to check your computers for viruses. Be sure to obtain the latest virus signature files for your program when they are available, because new viruses are created every day.
For administrators:
  • Before putting a new program on the network, install it on a computer not attached to the network, and then check it with your virus-detection software. (Although it's advisable to log on to your computer as a member of the Users group, you should install the program while logged on as a member of the local Administrators group because not all programs install successfully when installed by a member of the Users group.)
  • Do not allow users to log on as members of the Administrators group on their own computers because viruses can do more damage if activated from an account with Administrator permissions. Users should log on as members of the Users group so that they will have only the permissions necessary to perform their tasks. 
  • Require users to create strong passwords so that viruses cannot easily guess passwords and obtain Administrator permissions. (You can set password requirements using the Group Policy snap-in.) For information about creating strong passwords, click Related Topics. 
  • Regularly back up files so that damage is minimized if a virus attack does occur.
  • For more information on viruses, consult the documentation for your virus-detection software.

About Network Connections

Network Connections provides connectivity between your computer and the Internet, a network, or another computer. With Network Connections, you can gain access to network resources and functionality, whether you are physically located at the location of the network or in a remote location. Connections are created, configured, stored, and monitored from within the Network Connections folder.
The New Connection Wizard helps you create Internet connections using your dial-up modem, ISDN, DSL or cable modem. You can also create incoming, direct, and virtual private networking (VPN) connections using the New Connection Wizard. Local area connections are created automatically when a network adapter is installed.
Each connection in the Network Connections folder contains a set of features that you can use to create a link between your computer and another computer or network. Outgoing connections contact a remote access server by using a configured access method (LAN, modem, ISDN line, DSL, cable modem, and so on) to establish a connection with the network. Conversely, an incoming connection enables a computer running Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Home Edition, or a stand-alone computer running Windows 2000 Server to be contacted by other computers. This means your computer can operate as a remote access server. Whether you are connected locally (LAN), remotely (dial-up, ISDN, and so on), or both, you can configure any connection so that it can perform any needed network function. For example, you can print to network printers, access network drives and files, browse other networks, or access the Internet.
Because all services and communication methods are configured within the connection, you do not need to use external management tools to configure connection settings. For example, the settings for a dial-up connection include features to be used before, during, and after connecting. These include the modem you use to dial, the type of password encryption you want to use upon connecting, and the network protocols you use after you connect. Connection status, which includes the duration and speed of a connection, is viewed from the connection itself; you do not need to use an external status tool. For information about configuring a connection, see To configure a connection.
Logon and domain security, support for security hosts, data encryption, authentication, and callback provide secure network access for network and dial-up connections. For more information about security features, see Security features of Network Connections.
