safety from spooldr

Yes it is a trojan horse which will create a lot of problem for a Microsoft based computer. In order to protect your computer from it you need to keep some important things in mind and follow them everytime. Never visit any untrusted websites. Never download attachments from unknown users. Never open mails from unknown senders. And always keep your Internet Security Suite updated for newer threats. This should help you to keep your computer safe from malicious attacks and mainly from spooldr.

Updating Antivirus

Okay so just by following the steps given above I will be safe from most of malicious attacks and mainly from spooldr. I am using Kaspersky Internet Security Suite. So is it capable to handling such major threats. And is it complusory to update the my Internet Security Suite regularly. Because it takes a lot of time to update, so i update my Security Suite once or twice a month. Is it fine.
