Antivirus and user habits

The best protection is changing your habits! For decades, we have compared different antivirus packages and ranked them based on how well they perform; but the bottom line is none will ever be 100% proof. So the best advice is to go with a good antivirus but also change your bad habits when using your PC.

Some of the main causes of infections are:

1. Javascripts
2. Adobe
3. Unsolicited links in emails
4. Popups
5. Emails with direct links to PayPal, Facebook…
6. Ignoring updates and security patches
7. Not using antivirus & firewall: Whether paid or free, it’s a must to have one installed
8. Phishing and scams
