In order to have the fastest experience on the Internet, you need to regularly protect your PC against computer viruses, spyware and other malware. Symptoms of an infected computer include:
* Strange behavior that you haven’t noticed before
* Unexpected messages, sounds
* Programs start unexpectedly
* Alerts from your computer’s firewall
* Spam sent to your friends from your email address
* Very slow internet speeds
There are numerous programs available that it can be confusing to figure out which ones to use and which ones to avoid.
