Reliable Data Protection And Smooth Computer Operations With Anti-virus Software

By Bayne Schulstad

Anti-virus software is a crucial tool to protect any computer that accesses the Internet or might be connected to a network that has computers which can access it. Viruses are invented everyday and they can render a computer and the entire network helpless and non-functional, especially if the viruses attack the boot sector, the network server or start-up registry files. Many on-site computer repair service calls can be the result of an attack by a serious virus, Trojan or worm, so this vital component can save you money and headaches, besides the loss of data.

Reliable software makes a wise investment for anyone who want to secure and protect their computers, computer server or network from the attacks of viruses. For some that is affordable and accessible, it provides your computer with the protection it needs to safely and securely go online. You may be familiar with the common signs of an infected computer, such as corrupted data, failure to boot up and other operating problems. To avoid these annoyances, why not put your money on a great anti-virus package.

It is possible to purchase anti-virus software that can protect more than one computer under the same license, which makes it perfect for small business networks. Even a home computer needs software because there are viruses, Trojans, worms and malware or spyware lurking everywhere on the Internet, but it isn’t obvious, unless you have anti-virus software with updated definitions, to block the attacks.

Many of the most reputable package software options for virus protection will have automatic definition updating, or a function that allows you to schedule automatic downloads and full system virus scans. Many of the best virus protection programs include other convenient features, such as password protection through identification-safe features, firewalls, and virus scans that run automatically or in the background while you perform other tasks.

Although there are online virus scan applications, which can be run for free, nothing beats the tough protection delivered by licensed anti-virus software. Online scans are very good in detecting possible invasions of computer viruses, spyware or malware; some of them even offer free services in fixing, deleting or repairing the damage caused by the attack. However, they do not provide the best protection for your computers. There are network administrators that might take advantage of online scans, but your computer will be left unharmed from such occurrence when it is protected by an installed software package.

Any package software you purchase for protection from viruses or spyware and malware will be effective for an annual period. They can be renewed with low annual renewal fees, but there are new products and virus protection improvements coming to the marketplace all of the time. If you purchase a new computer, there are some offers that include a free trial period of top-name software programs for virus protection, but these programs are typically good for a 90-day period and it is easy to activate the full program and subscription with online purchasing.

Leaving your computer unprotected from the attacks of lurking viruses; Trojans, malware, worm or spyware, is never a smart move. Without the reliable computer, server and network protection offered by anti-virus software packages, you will surely be a frequent caller of on-site computer repair service providers. To help you choose the best anti-virus package for your computer, you may ask your on-site computer service repair personnel for professional advice or product recommendation for this problem.
