With the discovery of new a virus almost every day, antivirus software has become a must in the computer world. Viruses cause everything from small annoyances to major problems. Viruses are normally distributed through E-mail as attachments.
The most common misconception is that viruses are sent by a stranger, when in fact, it's usually a colleague, friend, or family member that is the culprit who is simply not aware that an E-mail has been sent from their computer by a virus they obtained.
We cannot stress enough, once antivirus software has been installed on the computer, it is imperative that the virus subscription remains active and that the definitions are updated no less than once every two weeks. The most popular antivirus software packages are Norton AntiVirus and McAfee VirusScan.
