Antiviruses and Malware Protection
Antiviruses and malware protection have such a significant impact on computers, and how they will function, it’s out of this world! There is also a slight difference between antiviruses and malware protection. There are many ways a computer can become infected with a virus. One of the most common forms is when a user accepts what they see on the screen without reading the prompt before proceeding. Another reason is a user downloads an infected software. A malware is very similar to a virus. Malware is a software that is intended to damage or disable computers and computer systems. Malware may be designed to steal information or may be designed to spy on computer users for an extended period without them knowing.
