Avoid Win-Trojan/Zbot.62976.Q from entering the system
  

Hello friends, is there any method to avoid Win-Trojan/Zbot.62976.Q from entering the system, that is installed with Windows Vista operating system? I am using AVG antivirus, that alerts me about this infection everytime I use the internet. I can successfully delete the infection, if it enters the system, but it enters all the time I use the internet. I cant understand why this is happening. So, I need some measures to keep my system safe from infections. Please help with suitable remedies.

Do not open attachments from unknown users

Hello there, I advice you to not open attachments from unknown users to avoid Win-Trojan/Zbot.62976.Q from entering the system. The attackers send mail to a lot of users that contain attachments with infections in it. It is sure that many unsuspected users fall prey to such attacks. You just need to be alert and be sure that you do not open all the email attachments anonymously.

Keep the antivirus always updated

Keep the antivirus always updated to avoid Win-Trojan/Zbot.62976.Q from entering the system. In this way, the database of the antivirus will be added with the new signatures of the infections that are newly created by the attackers. So, the infections will be detected and deleted if they enter into the system. This is a very good method to keep the system safe from infections.
