I have this incredible knack of breaking down computers, catching viruses and burning up hard drives, it’s a talent, well more like a curse. I can guarantee that if there is a broken down computer in my house or one with a virus it’s probably owned by me. And my talent discriminates no one even my previous work computers have become victims.
It drives my husband crazy, I’ve gone through about three laptops compared to his one and his wasn’t even brand new when he purchased it. So whenever I need to buy a new computer he quickly updates it with the latest virus protection software most often before I’m allowed to do anything else.
I actually think most of my issues are cause by my heavy internet use and download addiction, while I’m careful to not download suspicious emails I do use a lot of open source software from the web, download a tone on e-books and other great tools – all in the name of improving my business, life and/or dinner choices.
Did you know that more than 80% of malware spreads via the internet instead compared to the past when email was the major culprit? In fact the latest avast! Virus Lab research shows that 99% of it spreads through legitimate websites and only 1% comes from suspicious sites. According to their study more than 62,000 infected websites have been discovered by Avast.
I don’t know about you but my computer is more than just a device to communicate with friends and family, it holds my business, my memories, my stories – it holds my life. Having a virus that crashes my entire system terrifies me.
My husband and I have been using avast! For awhile now and have been very happy with the results, so far my computer hasn’t had any problems and the best parts it’s FREE.
