Virus protection should be installed and updated daily on all Microsoft Windows operating systems. There are several legitimate companies that offer free virus protection. I don’t recommend purchasing virus protection when the free programs offer the same or better protection. Most viruses are disguised as rouge antivirus programs that trick the user into downloading it. This can happen with any antivirus program. The trick is to identify the fake virus program pop window and close the pop up with the task manager.
