Virus Scanning and Removal Virus Scanning and Removal, Internet Security Computer viruses are -- just about -- the worst thing in the world.  Sometimes, they come right up on your screen "You have a virus!"  Sometimes, they don't.  They might be hiding in the background trying to steal your internet passwords or credit card numbers.  Bad stuff!  It is absolutely imperative that every computer have up-to-date virus protection.
Internet security is another protection tool of the utmost importance.  In addition to viruses written by malicious people, code can be written to deploy itself over the internet that might sneak by a virus protection program.  The combination of virus protection and internet security is a must.
I can install and teach you about these programs.
