How to Protect Your PC from Viruses?

A small program designed to propagate itself and, sometimes, to cause damage or destroy the directory structure on your PCs are called worms and viruses because they share some of the traits of biological viruses. A computer virus passes from computer to computer like a biological virus passes from person to person. A worm is a computer program that has the ability to copy itself from machine to machine. Worms normally move around and infect other machines through computer networks. Using a network, a worm can expand from a single copy quickly. Computer viruses can be spread by infected programs downloaded from the Internet, or infected programs or files can be sent between computers by networks or by email attachments.
  • The best way to keep viruses off from your PC is to install antivirus software.
  • Most popular software: McAfee VirusScan, Norton Antivirus and AVG Antivirus.
  • Always make sure that your software is working properly and set your program to automatically update.
  • Scan your system regularly. Make it a regular habit to scan for viruses
  • Always use your antivirus software to scan an attached document file and image for viruses before you open it.
  • Delete unwanted emails without opening.
  • It's a good idea to unplug your network connection if you find a virus during a virus scan.
  • You should back-up at least two removable disks which you alternate for your important documents.
