Here are a few of tips for using your free antivirus program:
1. When you first install your free software, pay attention other for programs that will be automatically installed. If you don't need the additional software, be sure to un check the boxes before proceeding.
2. It is recommended to only have one active antivirus scanner. You may want to use other anti-malware programs (more on that in future posts) but antivirus scanners running at the same time on the same system may not work well together.
3. It is especially important to check for updates regularly, if you antivirus does not do so automatically. New malware is being released constantly, so your antivirus needs to be updated to protect you from the latest threats.
