There are plenty of antivirus programs but some can put a heavy load on your system, eating up the processor power you need for your applications. Many people even turn their virus protection off when they are working to speed up their machines, leaving themselves wide open to attack.

And it’s so easy to use that it won’t waste any of your valuable time. Just set it and forget it and get on with more important things.
