Virus protection is important to the casual surfer, but
even more important if you a building a homebased internet business. Be sure to have good virus protection for
your computer whatever it is used for.
A virus can corrupt your files, use excessive memory, and even wipe out your hard drive.
Virus protection is essential and will save you from your worst nightmare.
A virus is a piece of software that attaches itself to programs or documents. It is a parasite
that needs another program to attach to an do it's dirty work. Once it is in place it replicates itself and often
at some point in time at a pre designated command that is built in, something triggers it and that is when it
will either just do annoying things, or worse, erases your hard drive. A virus
protection program can prevent this from happening.
When downloading programs from the internet be sure the website you are downloading from is a
reputable website. Reputable websites want to retain their visitors and will not intentionally offer bad
downloads. Also, be careful with email and do not open an attachment unless you know and trust the
person who sent it. Email attachments from bogus sources have been responsible for the spread of many viruses.
Whatever virus protection program you run, be sure to keep it updated. New viruses are
created on an ongoing basis and you want to remain well protected.
Along with virus protection, you should think about Data Backup.
