Having good anti-malware software as a supplement to your anti-virus software is important for your PC security strategy. This week we would like to know which anti-malware software that you use.
These days a person not only has to watch out for viruses but also spyware, crapware, and rogue/fake security software such as AntiSpyware 2009 and Antivirus Live. The fun never stops. Those of us who work hard to keep our computers clean usually know someone such as a family member, friend, or co-worker who seems to be a malware magnet. As a one person IT department you get the opportunity to learn all about malware and how to get rid of it.
A malware infested system can be a frustrating pain to work with once the malware has its’ claws dug in deep. On occasion a clean wipe is the only thing that will work, but anti-malware software can save you a lot of work and grief by returning a system to its properly functioning condition. It all depends on the types and amount of malware that has managed to set up home on a system.
Which anti-malware software do you use to protect your computer? Do you only use one or multiple anti-malware apps to get the job done? Let us know in the comments!
