Advanced virus blocking
Strong antivirus protection is essential for defending your home computers from malware and other online threats.
The harmful effects of viruses range from slowing down your computer to stealing or destroying data, or even handing hackers control over your computer. Viruses can attach themselves to other programs or hide in code that runs automatically when you open certain types of files. Sometimes viruses exploit security flaws in your computer’s operating system to run and spread automatically.
