Computer Virus Protection
Computer viruses can do some serious damage to your computer and the information stored on it. These self-replicating programs can delete files and hijack your computer, putting it to work for their own purposes. Preventing viruses and other malicious code from gaining access to your computer is the first and most important step to keeping your computer healthy.
- To be most effective, antivirus software needs to be updated continually to protect against new viruses or newly discovered vulnerabilities. This can often be done for free online at the software company's home page, or automatically by the software itself.
