More information about antivirus protection
What an antivirus does:
Antivirus programs are software that detect viruses and other malicious software,
and then either removes or disables them. An antivirus can block infections from
ever reaching your computer, and it can remove existing infections.
Why use an antivirus:
As viruses and other malicious software increase in complexity, sophistication,
and number, infections continue to pose a hazard to home computer users. Even if
you avoid opening unexpected e-mail attachments and steer clear of suspect Internet
downloads, there are many other ways for malicious software to find its way onto
your PC. Using an antivirus program is one of the simplest and most effective steps
you can take to protect your computer. Antivirus software monitors your computer
and automatically blocks and removes computer infections, preventing them from causing
damage or spreading further.
