Protecting Your Pc Against Viruses

Viruses have been the scurge of computer users for many years now. Over the years, the viruses have become more sophisticated and sinister. With the amount of sensitive financial information we store on our computers in this day and age, it is imperative that we have a strategy to protect our PC and data from the multitude of viruses out there.

There are a number of good free anti-virus software programs available to download on the internet. Just goto your favourite search engine and type in 'free anti virus software' and find a good program you can download and install on your PC. When looking at all the available options, you want to make sure the software has the ability to automatically download and install the latest virus signature files. This will ensure that you are always protected against the newest threats out there.

If you have a broadband connection, and therefore your PC is always connected to the internet, you will want to make sure you have a robust firewall installed. This will protect your PC against direct malicious attacks. There is the possibility that your OC could be used as a bot (or part of a robot army network of PSs) and used for malicious attacks on other OCs and businesses. Go back to your favourite search engine and type in 'free firewall software' and download a program and install it. These programs take a while to 'learn' which sites to trust, so you will need to be patient and guide your software while it learns.

Last, but not least, you will want to install anti-spyware software. Some virus programs have this feature, or have this software come bundled with it. Make sure you have it installed and run it regularly to pick up other threats such as spyware and adware.
