A large number of the computers we see in our workshop come in with viruses and other malicious software installed.
Sometimes these devices have anti-virus software on them, often the same software that was shipped initially with the device and subsequently not updated. Other times there is no anti-virus software at all.
Anti-virus software is a must for your devices that are accessing the internet. Anti-virus software is a program, or set of programs, designed to prevent, detect and remove software viruses and other potentially malicious software such as trojans, worms and adware.
We are often asked which is the best software to use. There are free anti-virus software programs out there such as AVG Free. Often with free versions of software there is a premium, paid version that offers extra functionality such as firewalls and secure folders.
In store at Gee Bees Media we use and recommend ESET Anti-Virus and ESET Internet Security.
Some of the benefits of ESET Internet Security include:
- A more affordable option than other brands – only $77 for 3 devices to be protected for 12 months
- ESET has been awarded for being the least impactful regarding the performance of your PC system
- Online banking and online shopping protection included
- Provides alerts for intrusions of your home Wi-Fi router or webcam when anyone unexpectedly tries to access them
- Strong Parental Controls, with the ability to block categories or individual websites and keep your kids safe while online
