Introduction


Your asking for big trouble if you don't use protection. I'm talking about computer protection from hard drive destroying software. This software is referred as a virus. Often viruses are designed to multiply and as they do so they take up valuable space on your hard drive. As they don't just look for empty spaces on a hard drive. They also look for space on a hard drive which has already been occupied by data. Often this data is of some value you to you.

Once the virus has wiped out the data on your hard drive it is very unlikely that you will be able to retrieve it again. There are viruses that will attack almost every system of the computer these days.

Often viruses are transferred from computer to computer from the simple use of a floppy disc. On the new computers floppy are not used as much as zips and other portable hard drives. Cds are unlikely to carry a virus unless it was burned into the disc intentionally. That is why almost all software today is offered to the consumer as a CD or DVD.

What Virus software will do is to help you spot them before any actual damage occurs. Advanced software will isolate the virus so that it will not further be a threat to other working systems on your computer.

There are many anti virus software that you can choose from. You should be looking for software that works with your computers operating system. The software should be able to do all of the functions described above and more. The software should be up gradable at any time. I like Norton and have personally used it since the first day that I had bought this computer some five years ago. To this day Norton has saved my computer on many occasions.

Don't buy cheap anti Virus software. You get what you pay for and Norton is a good product that will run on just about every computer platform out there. Here are some other good software products to look for as well: Mcaffee, Net Barrier, and Tech Tool Pro just to name a few.

Do keep your software up to date. This may mean that when a new upgrade comes out you will want to buy it. This in turn will keep your computer safe from computer hackers who are out there to make your life a living hell.
