There are several things you can do to guard against viruses. First, you should have reputable virus protection software installed on your computer. Your local computer dealer has these for sale, or you can download them from vendors' Web sites.

However, you should also protect your computer against spyware; applications made to track your computer and on-line activities. Such applications often sneak into your computer as parts of other, seemingly harmless, software packages. Some of these applications may also harm your computer in other ways.

Note: Once you have this software installed, it is vital to keep it updated regularly. New viruses and spyware appear constantly.

Keeping malware out

We will, from now on, assume you have anti-virus and anty-spyware controls installed. But that is your last line of defense. The best way to prevent your computer from being infected, is to keep your computer from having to counter sources of infection. Viruses, spyware and other software that may harm your computer are collectively known as malware.

  • Only download files from reputable sources. Try to research other users' experiences with applications.
  • Be wary of e-mail attachments. Do not open anything unless you are certain it is safe. Messages with viruses in them will often pretend to be sent from someone you know, so a known sender is not a guarantee that the attachment is safe. If in doubt, send your contact a message and ask "Did you really send this to me? What is it?"
  • Be particularly careful with file types that have been known to carry viruses, see Potentially hazardous file types.

Virus myths

You may at times receive virus "warnings" from friends or colleagues. These "warnings" are almost as common as viruses themselves, and in most cases the warnings are hoaxes. You may receive an e-mail warning of a virus that can be carried in the text of an e-mail. This is not true. A virus cannot be passed to you in the text body of a message. If you are using Opera's e-mail client, the only way you can receive a virus by e-mail, is as an attachment that you open.

Plug-ins in Opera


Tweaking the User Interface

Plug-ins are third party software enabling multimedia in Web pages. A plug-in could give you the ability to play audio samples or view video movies, so plug-ins are often the link between the browser and a separate application. You must download and install plug-in software for each type of plug-in content. If you wish not to display plug-in content in Web pages, this can be disabled.
General plug-in installation instructions
These instructions mainly apply to Opera for Windows.
1. Download the plug-in and start the installation program. If given a choice, install the plug-in for use with Netscape (or of course Opera, if provided), not Internet Explorer
2. Follow the on-screen instructions and complete the installation of the plug-in
3. Copy the plug-in's ".dll" file(s) to Opera's "plugins" directory if necessary
4. Restart Opera to be sure that Opera finds the plug-in
How to view .dll files
• Double-click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop
• From the menu, select Tools > Folder Options
• Click on the "View" tab and select "Show hidden files and folders" under "Hidden Files and folders"
• Make sure "Hide file extensions for known file types" is not selected
• Click "OK"
Dynamic link library files (.dll) should now be visible on your system.
