Digital Photo Frame Viruses
Digital photo frames are a great way to display your digital photos. And, since they look like standard frames, it’s like constantly changing out your frame with new pictures. But, digital photo frames do come with their issues, and many of those revolve around people trying to figure out how to get their photos on to the frame. To help you with these issues, here are a few of the most common digital photo frames problems, and how to deal with them.
One of the most common problems with digital photo frames is viruses. Because you upload pictures either via a USB Flash drive or directly from your computer, digital photo frames are subject to the same viruses as these devices. Yet, unlike standard devices, it’s much harder to get a virus off of a digital photo frame.
With this problem, prevention is the best step. So, before you plug in your device, you run a virus scan on both your computer and your USB device. This will let you know whether or not any virus exists before you begin uploading photos to your digital photo frame.
If the photo frame already has a virus, try plugging it into your computer and then run a virus scan on it. Hopefully, your virus protection will capture and remove the virus immediately. But you do risk infecting your PC with that virus.
