However, Internet connectivity of your Windows system can even cause some issues. These issues include malware infections, data thefts, compatibility issues, performance issues and so on. As Internet connects millions of computers, the exact source of the malware would be almost impossible to detect and this means that any computer connected to the Internet is vulnerable to such threats.

Antivirus Programs

Malware are the single greatest threat when connecting and using your Windows computer to the Internet. Malware can cause hardware as well as software issues on your computer. The best way to resolve issues caused by malware is to install the computer with a good antivirus program and then remove all of the infections. The Internet on your Windows computer should be also used to update the antivirus program so that even latest of threats can be found and removed.

System Restore

If some of the programs or applications installed on your system got updated and the application developed some errors or ceased to function, the system restore feature can be used to restore the system to a previous restore point. The system restore can effectively fix all the issues on the system/ application without causing data loss of any kind. However, users must take care when restoring the system as restoring the system to restore point with issues can complicate the existing issue.


Spyware spread via the Internet and cause issues such as data thefts. Spyware are specifically designed to get silently installed on a system and send out critical information from the system.
