Anti Virus Protection

Updated on June 28, 2010

Anti Virus Protection is a must have for any type of computer or pc interface. If it is even attempted to use a computer to connect to the Internet, without any decent type of anti virus protection, then it is only a short matter of time before your computer or laptop will pick up a virus and be open to a hacker. It can cost noticeable amounts of money for those who do not know how to remove and/or fix a computer virus.

Anti virus protection is not the only protection type of software a computer needs. A good security or protection software for any pc should have an anti virus, anti-spyware and malware removal tool. It is also advisable never to download a free anti virus program from the internet, if it is from a company you have never heard of. If you are new to the Internet and have no idea what any anti-virus companies are out there, then ask someone you trust and who is computer literate.

There are so many anti virus, anti spyware and malware removal tools so, which one is the best to choose from? There are many free anti virus, spyware and malware removal tools as there are also paid ones. Personally, I stick with Microsoft. Microsoft supply a free anti virus, spyware and malware protection package, which is simple and everyone has heard of Microsoft, so they are more likely to be a trusted site. Their anti virus protection download is called Microsoft Security Essentials and is very easy to use. Just like any other decent anti virus protection program, Microsoft Security Essentials works quietly in the background, while you simply search the net. Their program does not seem to slow down the physical speed of the computer whilst it is scanning either. After the computer has been scanned completely, the Microsoft Security Essentials program even removes any form of Trojan, virus or malware without you having to do anything. Microsoft also sends updates to your computer when needed, to suit your own computers needs and it is free!

      With Microsoft providing antivirus product to its customers, the competition is getting stiff. I think some of PC security products lacking sufficient customer base will go out of the play, due to costs needed to maintain and support R&D. However, there's the other side of the medal. More and more fake antivirus programs are flooding the web. Cheap to produce and distribute, they pay off.
