    Have you ever looked at the specs for a computer and felt like you were reading another language? Gigahertz (GHz), Gigabytes (GB) and Terabytes (TB) are common terms in computer advertisements, but what do they mean to a person in the real world. Lets get behind the numbers to find out what they really mean and why you need them.

    RAM

    Random-Access Memory (RAM) is a form of computer data storage which allows the information to be accessed by the Central Processing Unit (CPU). This memory is reset each time the computer is turned off. By increasing the amount of RAM in your computer, you allow it to work faster by reducing the need of the CPU to access information on the hard drive, which is read at a much slower rate than the RAM. Typical sizes of RAM on new computers range from 1GB on the lowest end computer, to around 8GB on the most optimized models.

    Hard Drive

    In addition to RAM storage that is erased every time the computer is turned off, every computer also has storage that isnt erased where all necessary programs, documents, and operating information is stored. This storage is called the hard drive. Hard drives are much larger than RAM because the amount of long-term storage necessary is much larger than short term. For example, a computer is required to have 16GB of hard drive space available for Windows 7 alone. To give an idea of how much storage some of these hard drives hold, a large high resolution photo can easily take 2 to 3 megabytes of space. A two hour movie will take about 2GB, whereas 1TB is about the same amount of information as all the books of a large library, or around 1,610 CDs worth of data. Drives range from around 40GB for a lowly computer to a massive 2TB, which could store the contents of two large libraries.

    Clock Speed

    The clock speed is a measure of how quickly a computer conducts basic computations and operations. The clock speed is measured in megahertz (MHz), which is a million cycles per second, and gigahertz (GHz), which is one billion cycles per second. Where clock speed is often debated is between different chip makers whose 1GHz always tends to vary slightly. It is important to research the differences between the chipmakers to find out how they stack up against each another.

    A great way to compare specs on desktop computers is through Shopping.com. Shopping.com pioneered online comparison shopping and today is one of the fastest growing shopping destinations for a comprehensive set of products from thousands of trusted stores from across the Web. With a singular focus on shopping, Shopping.com offers shoppers easy-to-use search tools, engaging content and time saving navigation, along with millions of unbiased product and merchant reviews from the Epinions community, all in one place.

    There are definite dangers associated with computer illiteracy. The rapid advancement in technology has allowed for criminal innovations, with numerous internet-based frauds and identity theft becoming commonplace. Therefore, a working knowledge on computers can reduce user vulnerability from unwanted email to computer viruses. Good computer education helps to take a person from beyond having technical skills to learning to work with computers. Proper training provides learners with the knowledge of how information is used, shared and distributed. They can be warned about posting embarrassing photographs and/or comments on social networking sites because a potential employer can unearth them. The importance of a good computer education includes:

    Improved computer literacy

    A course in computers allows learners to improve their computer literacy. When they complete their course, learners gain some important skills required to perform various jobs, from simple computer tasks (e.g. using basic applications and navigating the Internet) to more complex tasks (i.e. troubleshooting problems). Every class allows learners to improve their skills, working towards advancing their knowledge in computers and concluding with IT related education.

    Improved presentation skills

    Computer literate students can effectively use computers in their studies. They can engage the available technological tools to communicate or present their work in a well-organized and engaging manner. For example, they can create PowerPoint presentations, short movies or digital slideshow presentations in place of standard essay projects and/or standard posters.

    Improved communication

    Good computer education offers learners an ideal opportunity to communicate effectively with friends, family and acquaintances from around the world. Enrolling in a computer class allows learners to acquire the necessary knowledge required to work the available communication tools. They acquire the skill to use the communication options provided by advanced technology to share information and/or picture.

    Improved capacity to find information

    Advancements in technology has made the process of finding information easier and effective. Long gone are the days of sorting a card catalogue and venturing through stacks of books at the library to find information. Today, an unprecedented amount of information can be accessed through the internet. However, for any person to benefit from this wealth of information, he/she needs to know how to work the computer. Computer courses set time to teach learners proper use of reference software to gather information available on the internet. In addition, learners are taught how to evaluate information, to judge its reliability, validity and usefulness.

    A computer virus is software that is capable of creating a lot of problems to your computer programs and files. It can even affect your hard disk as well. These viruses travel through the Internet from computer to computer. Some of them can even be used to extract information from your computer illegally with the intent to sell. With all your personal information, identity theft becomes easy.

    Often times your computer will begin doing weird things and stop running like it usually does when it has acquired a virus. Some signs of this can be your computer is reacting slower, freezing up frequently, runs and then restarts itself many times, some programs are not running at all and the it does not recognize disks or disk drives in the computer. You will also see some strange programs that were not there in the computer before, which you did not install.

    You should run an anti-virus program to see if you do have a virus and where it is located. Sometimes your computer shows signs of having a virus, but this may also be due to other hardware failures that your computer is having and it may not have anything to do with computer viruses.

    Removing computer viruses is not an easy task. Even experts need the help of removal tools. It is therefore very important to have the latest anti-virus updates on your computer. These programs have been created to stop most of the viruses from getting through, before they enter your computer in the first place. Of course, once you have a virus, you will have to try and get rid of it without losing too much of your data in the process. This also applies to the memory on your hard drive.

    Prevention is perhaps the best solution to computer viruses. There are a few things that you can do to make sure that you dont get viruses in the first place. First, keep your firewall on at all times. This will help keep unwanted programs out. Secondly, keep your system completely up-to-date to be able to handle the latest viruses efficiently. Next, make sure you have a good anti-virus software and that it is not expired. Now make sure to use antispyware software to protect your computer as well. Make sure you have all the information on these products and tools to keep your computer healthy at all times.

    Computer viruses can easily spread from one computer to another by attaching itself to programs and files. Do you know what greatly contributes to the spread of virus into you computer and to other computers? It is the action done by the user.

    Viruses come in executable files. Meaning, it will not really affect your computer unless you run or open the malicious program. Oftentimes, because the user is not aware of malicious files and programs, they initiate it and this causes the activation within the computer.

    There are a lot of anti-virus programs you can choose from which will enable you to protect your computer. Yet, it is still important to be aware about viruses because this will ensure that you can really avoid those malicious programs and files.

    It is not enough to just know what a virus is. More importantly, you have to be aware of the other common threats that usually affect computers. Among the most common viruses are worms and Trojan horse. What exactly are these?

    Worm is an algorithm which can cause damage your computer. The difference of worm among other computer threats is that is capable of spreading through your computer even without running or opening the program. It spreads from one computer to another through various methods of file transfer. What makes it worse is the fact that worms are often capable of replicating itself within your system.

    On the other hand, Trojan horse is also another destructive program which can be quite tricky. Worms are capable of appearing in disguise. People who receive Trojan horse are often fooled into opening the file because it appears like a useful software or a program file from a reliable source. Trojan horse can do alterations to your computer like changing the desktop settings or adding unnecessary icons. In other cases, it causes more serious damage like deleting files in the hard drive.

    If you think these two are already serious threats to your computer, there’s something else that is much worse. That is, if virus, worm and Trojan horse were put together in one seriously destructive threat which is also called as the Blended Threat. Blended threats are more sophisticated and more complicated to create. At the same time, it also has a more detrimental effect. It can spread through the entire computer and even to networks which damages the files and programs and can even sacrifice the safety of confidential information within the system. Even worse, blended threats do not need to be activated by the user before it could attack your system, destroying the computer, the network and programs.

    Keep yourself aware of these things and it will strengthen your defense against the viruses that may destroy your computer.
