Recently, many people have asked me whether or not the new Microsoft Azure technology platform and Microsoft SQL Server databases on the go are safe from attack by malicious software. Well, I can say without a doubt that it is safe – but only if you take all steps necessary to defend yourself! Unfortunately, many companies make the mistake of only installing a firewall on their network and then rely on that protection to ward off any potential threats. That’s a major flaw, and one that can leave your company open to attack from the likes of malware, spyware, and even hackers.
So, what can you do to protect your company against these potential attacks? The most important thing you can do is run an anti-malware program on your company’s network. A popular one that I have used and liked is Windows Defender. While it may not be the most powerful or most up-to-date program out there, it’s free, easy to use, and extremely effective against malware. If you’re on XP, you can download the program from Microsoft’s website, and if you’re on Vista, you can go to the Microsoft downloads site.
After you’ve downloaded the software, you should install it on your machine and run it to identify any missing, outdated, or incorrect drivers that are causing issues with your operating system. One thing you should always look for is the driver for the device that you are trying to connect to your virtualization server. This is the device that will handle communication between your OS and the device, which include things like graphics cards, sound cards, USBs, and so forth. Missing drivers can cause communication issues, so it’s always a good idea to double-check that any drivers you’re installing are correct and up to date.
Once you’ve identified any missing or problematic drivers, it’s time to go searching for them. The place to start is on the device manager menu, which should be found at the bottom left of your desktop. Look for your MSI motherboard drivers, and you should see a list of them. Clicking on any of them will take you to the manufacturer’s website to download and install the correct drivers.
You might want to use DriverCure to search for missing drivers as well, since it’s an advanced driver tool that can pull up all kinds of errors with just a few clicks of the mouse. It’s important to note however that DriverCure won’t be able to search for your specific device driver – it needs to have the correct device drivers in its database first. If this isn’t the case, then DriverCure will simply tell you to update your drivers manually.
Finally, it’s important that you don’t think that these problems are only going to happen with your OEM drivers. They’re also likely to occur with generic drivers as well, especially if you are having a lot of trouble with certain software on your machine. This is because many hardware components of an OEM computer are also part of the motherboard, and the manufacturer cannot modify these components in their original format. If you want to ensure that all devices are working properly, it’s recommended that you use an official driver from the manufacturer instead of using drivers that you may have downloaded off the Internet. Doing so will help you avoid the hassle of dealing with drivers that are not meant to work with your particular system.
