With most PC’s nowadays being connected to the internet it is becoming increasingly important to protect your computer from malicious viruses. Most people know about the threat of viruses but were you aware of the threat of both malware and spyware?

 

Malware is software which is specifically designed to disrupt or damage a computer system and spyware is software that enables a user to obtain covert information about another’s computer activities by transmitting data covertly from their hard drive and both are equally important to protect yourself against.

 

There are many free software options that can protect your PC against such threats and I would highly recommend installing software to protect your PC against these three threats. If you don’t quite know where to begin ask your local PC store to install the software when you have your annual PC general maintenance check.

 

Once you have your PC files and folders decluttered and organised, backed up and protected you can say goodbye to the mental energy it was once sapping from you and look forward to a streamlined and ordered electronic existence!
