Virus protection

You will at least be protected whilst you research if this is the level of protection you require.

If you are connected to the Internet it is important to have good virus protection and update regularly.

If you have purchased machines from a registered supplier you will have been given information about virus protection and how often it should be updated and what are the costs involved. If you are unsure just check with them – it will tell you somewhere amongst the paperwork supplied at the time of purchase.

If you have had a machine passed onto you by a family member, please check with them what is the name of your virus protection system and what you need to do to keep it updated.

If you have had your machine for some time and you use the Internet and do not regularly update your virus protection I would recommend you do so.
There are free, cheap and expensive forms of protection depending on your need.
