People ask us all the time “How do I avoid getting a virus?” or “How did I get this virus?”. We always tell people, unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to avoid getting a virus. Even a Mac can get a virus (Google it). The main way anti-virus companies learn about new viruses is by someone catching the virus and then finding a cure (much like a human virus). Here are some tips:
- Don’t open attachments from people you don’t know.
- Use a web based email such as gmail or yahoo! since these emails do not get downloaded to your computer.
- Use the best anti-virus (we recommend Avast!)
If you think you do have a virus, run a Windows system restore right away. This will restore your programs to a previous state.
