What’s the chance of getting a virus on your computer?

I just ran out of Norton 360 on my computer so my computer isn’t protected and i don’t want it getting a virus, should i just not use the internet until my dad upgrades it later? Thanks

Keeping your computer clean of viruses is more about knowledge then anything else. Knowing what to click on and not to click on is the real trick. I’ve been running a computer online for about 11 years and to date I’ve only had one virus. But, running a computer, online, these days without an anti virus program installed is pretty dangerous for the average user.

Now about anti virus software. You do not need to spend any money on this type of software these days. There are many free antivirus programs available these days. I use Microsoft Security Essentials, and it works very well for me. But allot of the major anti virus manufacturers have free versions available for personal use. Below is a list of the more popular ones. Go to there web sites and look for the free stuff.

All of the following are free, and work very well. My personal favorite is Avast, but I switched to Windows Security Essentials a few months back and I’m very pleased with it.

Note: It is best to run at least 2 anti spyware programs, but never run more then 1 anti virus to eliminate conflicts.

Copyright violation alert is a fake antivirus.
