    D. Close the advertisement.
    Explanation
    When a flashing pop-up appears claiming that you are the 1000th visitor and asks you to click to claim a prize, it is most likely a scam or a form of phishing.

The safest option is to close the advertisement to avoid any potential harm or security risks.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    It is not safe to provide personal information, such as your address, to unknown sources. This email could be a phishing attempt or a scam, as it is unlikely for someone to offer a free Xbox360 without any catch. It is best to delete the email to protect your personal information and avoid potential risks.

    Correct Answer
    B. Use Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware programs.
    Explanation
    Using anti-virus and anti-spyware programs is one way to lower the risk of spyware. These programs are designed to detect and remove spyware from your computer, protecting it from potential threats. By regularly scanning your system and keeping these programs updated, you can minimize the chances of spyware infections and safeguard your personal information. Deleting "system32" from your computer or keeping your internet on the "Down Low" are not effective methods for lowering the risk of spyware.

    Correct Answer
    A. Malware.
    Explanation
    If your computer has been unresponsive, it is likely that you might have a malware virus. Malware refers to malicious software that is designed to disrupt, damage, or gain unauthorized access to a computer system. It can cause your computer to become unresponsive by consuming system resources, slowing down the operating system, or interfering with normal functions. Spam, phishing problems, and identity theft are not directly related to computer responsiveness, hence they are not the correct answers.
