IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: WE HAVE MOVED: Internet Curriculum Development Program™ (also refered to as the Internet Resources courses) offered through Loyola Marymount University LA and/or California State University have moved and are now offered through the University of the Pacific in Stockton, Calif. Checkout www.inet4learning.com for more information. University of Pacific is a regionally accredited university and has an excellent reputation. You can pick up right where you left off at LMU or CSU including use of the “alternate assignment.” If you are enrolled in LMU or CSU courses, you can complete them as usual and I'll be here to help. If you have any questions, contact me. I’ll be happy to help.
BELOW ARE REALLY IMPORTANT PROGRAMS YOU SHOULD HAVE ON YOUR COMPUTER
This information has been added to the security section of the course. It is important enough that even if you have started a course, you should be sure you have an antivirus program and cleaning tools to remove spyware, malicious software, and tracking cookies. Be sure to check out the security section for more information.
Malicious Program Cleaners (In addition to your antivirus program) The following is a list of FREE programs. Use several (at least the first two) and scan your computer weekly.
Even though the websites are included, the best place to find the free downloads is www.cnet.com. Type the title into the search window. Also be careful that they don't misguide you to one of the paid versions.
- Malwarebytes® http://www.malwarebytes.org/ looks for a variety of malicious objects, including viruses, Trojans, and other nasties.
- SuperAntiSpyware® http://www.superantispyware.com/ has a free version that is very highly rated.
- CCleaner® http://www.ccleaner.com/ is a top-rated broad service cleaner.
- Ad-Aware® http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download<
- Spybot® http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html
Having more than one of these programs, and trying to run them once a week, may seem like overkill. You will probably experience when one program misses something that another one will find. Maybe you run some one week and different ones the next. Before you run them, download the “update” data files to have the latest information. Most programs have an obvious “update” button/tab.
