Computer Virus Protection
Computer virus protection is an extremely important
issue for everyone these days. I am not talking about taking your computer laptop or desktop and placing a physical
lock on it. I am talking about protecting your computer with software computer security protection. Protection from
software hackers, computer viruses, email hijackers, email spam, ad' s, spy ware, remote keyboard logers and
trojans. Computer virus protection is a must have needed item for your laptop.
Your computer must be protected from these destructive attacks on your computer to allow it to run smoothly.
If you do not protect your computer from these things your computer will stop working or worst important private
information will be stolen. It could be your social security number or even your bank account number and
password/pin numbers. I am talking about identity theft!
Cool Tip: The best way to
protect your computer is to install all of these protection programs on your computer:
a anti virus program
a anti adware program
A computer firewall is a software program that is
installed on your computer that helps to block other people from accessing your computer when you are connected to
the Internet. If you are connected to the Internet you need a firewall. If you do not, you could have
private information stolen off of your computer.
Anti-virus software is a program that protects your
computer from software code or program that acts as a virus that infects your computer. It
infects other programs and applications on your computer by spreading and
infecting. Viruses will spread itself from your computer to other computers and can destroy your data and your
computer programs. It can even cause your computer to just not boot up one day. Than you are talking about very
costly repairs to have it removed or cleaned from your computer. It is far cheaper and smarter to buy and install a
anti virus program to protect this from ever happening.
Anti-spyware is a software program that is installed
on your computer that will prevent all those ad's from popping up in the middle of your screen with unwelcome
pictures and words.
Remember that when you use the Internet you are
sending information from computer to computer. This allows the possibility of the information that you are sending
to be seened by unauthorized people with there computers. By installing the suggested programs mention above you
can greatly reduce this from happening.
