Prevention is always better than cure. If you don’t take adequate measures to protect your PC, you should avoid using the internet or prevent yourself from connecting an external storage device such as pen drive, flash storage to it.
This is because the Internet is the home to 1000s of malicious websites. You may open the website accidentally and download infected programs from it unintentionally. To keep your PC safe, you must install a powerful firewall and antivirus software.
If you use the latest security product from a reputed company like Kaspersky, Bitdefender or Symantec, you don’t have to worry.
But if you’re using a free product, you should read reviews of the program online or use a security monitoring tool that will find vulnerabilities on your computer and will rate the security software on your PC. The 2nd option is convenient because it saves your time.
