Almost every computer I get on, that isn’t mine, has Norton or McAfee on it. If any of you know me, you know I am NOT a fan or either of those. Most computers come with those pre-installed on them, since they have a contract with the vendor. It’s a money-making thing, in my opinion.
If you use Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, or 7, you can use Microsoft Security Essentials for free. I use it and love it! One of my favorite things about it is that it does NOT slow down your machine like other anti-virus protection does.
Try it today and remove all other protections you use.
The best way to prevent viruses is to prevent from getting them in the first place. Here’s a few things you can do:
- NEVER click on any weird links.
- Do NOT open weird emails.
- NEVER download illegal music, TV shows, movies, etc. Surprising how many viruses come with these.
- Do NOT go to weird websites.
