Three ways to Protect Yourself from Malware

Anti-Virus Programs: There are a lot of companies that offer anti-virus software that can be downloaded. A back-ground check into this software couldn't hurt. Some are free but most cost. Hey, protection isn't free.

Firewalls: Firewalls are a simple way to protect yourself from most hackers and hoodlums. You may think that they are simple to get around so why bother. Newsflash! Those are experts! SO unless you have secrets that involve national security don't worry.

Common Sense: You'd be surprised what a little bit of sense would do you. It was mentioned earlier do a back-ground check on Anti-Virus programs, do checks on everything you download. DO checks on website sincerity to make sure you're downloading from a secure site.
