  Anti-virus software
  Virus can be transmitted in a variety of ways: through floppy disks or data CD's, by opening email attachments or visiting malicious websites.

For your home computer, you must install anti virus software.
There are some free anti-virus software available. You may refer to our Computer Security Software Download page to check available options .

  Remember that any software will only protect your computer against known viruses and it will not automatically recognise the new ones. Do not forget to configure your anti virus software to frequently seek for virus definition updates.

If you suspect that your computer is infected by a virus, run the anti-virus software on your computer (scan the hard-disk and repair possible infected files). You may also scan the hard-disk online.
