With new viruses being invented daily and getting harder to detect, computer users must be more cyber savvy than ever before. Prevention is better than cure, so how can you keep out of harm’s way? You’ll want to get familiar with a few tools of the trade.
While some viruses can be avoided by simple common sense, even the most savvy web surfers can be infected when they least expect it. It’s worth installing a well known anti-virus program, like Norton Anti-Virus, as they’re always keeping virus definitions up-to-date. Learn more at the Norton website.
Most viruses and malware hitch a ride through installs of third party software downloaded from the internet. You can lower your risk by using applications that block or don’t contain these threats.
