I recently answered a question for a client that I think you will find very help and that you will want to share with people you care about.
Client: Have you heard of scanguard? It is a free download of a program that supposedly scans for viruses and speeds up your computer. Would you recommend it?
Mardi: No and I wouldn’t trust free. My Techs recommend WebRoot in conjunction with Malwarebytes or BitDefender but BitDefender can slow things down.
Noah and Angel at NYPC Repair are in the business of removing viruses so they ought to know. They also told me that they see machines using McAfee that come in with viruses.
There’s an old saying in publishing that says, “If you don’t pay to learn how to do things right the first time, you’ll pay three times that to fix your mistakes.”
You just learned how to do antivirus protection right and it didn’t cost you a penny! You will need to pay for the most reliable protection however…unless you decide to use a Chromebook which doesn’t require antivirus programs.
Do you have a burning question that you want answered? Feel free to ask. There are probably many other folks that have the same question or concern.
Speaking of other folks, please share this with the people you care about so they can benefit too. They can sign up to receive all my Techie Tips here.
