read before you click
Are you beginning to notice that when you go to a website, you can’t see as much of the page because of numerous toolbars? Do you have a program that keeps appearing and warning you about viruses? Have you found a few programs on your computer you don’t recall installing?
If you have experienced any of the above, then you’ve missed the ‘additional’ products that come along with a lot of downloads nowadays. It has become more important than ever that you take the time and read every window, every screen that you go through when downloading a program, music, ebooks…anything to make sure that you have not opted to accept ‘additional’ offers.
Yes, it does take more time to read each screen. Yes, sometimes the additional offers are a bit confusing to understand what they are. And yes, if you don’t take the time, you could end up with more than just a toolbar that takes up room inside your browser.
Spend a little more time, save your computer and yourself the expense of cleaning up the problems that quick and excessive clicking can cause.
