Should I purchase an Anti-Virus software package for my personal computer?
Anti-Virus software is a very important part to any computer system because of the damage that can be caused by viruses.
There are currently over 45,000 viruses known to exist, and more than 20 new viruses are created every day. Some of the damage that can be caused by viruses include deleting all of the files on your hard drive, destroying the hardware in your computer (including the motherboard and other system boards), and infecting files so that they can not be used again.
You can get a virus from downloading infected files, reading infected emails, or opening your files on an infected computer.
The only way to avoid the damage caused by viruses is to purchase an Anti-Virus program that will look for viruses and clean your files from these viruses.
