Anti-Virus Software: Why You Need it

You might be wondering why you still need anti-virus software in 2022? Haven’t we solved this problem? The answer is no. There are still plenty of internet viruses out there that can do serious damage to our systems.  Don’t risk losing everything!

Viruses and malware are still prevalent. Hackers are always coming up with new ways to infiltrate our systems and damage our files and programs.

How do I get a Computer Virus?

Many viruses or malicious software (malware) are downloaded by mistake. They can come in the form of an email that appears to come from a friend. They can come from untrustworthy websites. Many of these are designed to trick you into clicking on them. Don’t feel bad if you fall for it, as that’s what they’re designed to do. Anyone can accidently download these things.

What does Anti-Virus Software do?

Anti-virus software is designed to detect, isolate, quarantine and/or delete the virus or malware.  This software also prevents the malware from causing damage to your device.

Malware can steal your data, encrypt it so you can’t access it, or delete it all together. Since many of us store important files on our computers, you wouldn’t want that to happen, would you?
