It seems like I can’t go a day without hearing about someone’s email being hacked or a computer being infected with some sort of virus. While the internet brings opportunity, it also brings risks. Instead of losing our wallets, we could lose our privacy, our money, even our identities through the internet. That’s one of the reasons taking whatever steps we can to protect our digital information is so important.
One critical way to protect your online information is to ensure that your home computer is safe and secure. Most hackers or viruses come in through emails or malicious downloads. They attach themselves and can either take over your computer, or silently sit on your computer, quietly storing and sending your passwords, login information, and other private date to the attacker. One way to help prevent these attacks is by installing VIPRE Antivirus software.
VIPRE Antivirus 2013 optimizes overall performance by combining anti-spyware and antivirus together into a single, powerful tool. Unlike other antivirus programs, you won’t even notice VIPRE’s running!
Installing VIPRE Antivirus is easy. Simply download it to your computer, enter your product key code, and the installation will begin. The first step is to remove any software that might potentially conflict with VIPRE Antivirus. My IT buddies actually recommend that you always remove old antivirus software if you’re installing a new software. VIPRE Antivirus automatically scans your installed programs and will list any software that might prevent VIPRE from working optimally. Once it’s installed, you can manage scans, modify settings, and control the software through the dashboard.
I found the software to be easy to use and navigate. I haven’t noticed any computer sluggishness since installing it on my computer. One big difference I DID notice was that I could stream and watch online videos even while VIPRE Antivirus was running its scan. With some other protection programs, I have to walk away while it scans because they caused my computer to lag.
I encourage all of you to take a look at how you use your computer and take the necessary steps to protect your online privacy. Don’t click on suspicious links or downloads, don’t share your password with anyone, and install an antivirus protection program, like VIPRE Antivirus.
