If you are a user of a PC like myself, sooner or later you will need to purchase some form of Antivirus software. Even if you are a pro at using the internet, at one point in your life you had to learn the evils of the internet through experience and then you had to fix those experiences via an antivirus program. Depending on the size of your problem, antivirus software can get expensive. Despite the initial cost of security software, the potential problems resulting from the lack of it is much worse. I accidentally let a virus on my computer from trying to view a meme website (it was not 4chan) and it left my laptop in a crippled state. I ended up having to buy various computer parts to build a gaming PC (worth the investment BTW), the damage was around $500.
For those who don’t have the money to spend in new computer parts or some antivirus software there are other options. There exists free antivirus protection you can download. Disclaimer: Not all free antivirus software available on the internet is safe, some might be scams trying to get into your computer and cripple your computer, thus, they force you to buy their “antivirus” solution.
For those in a similar situation like myself, there exists AVG antivirus software. AVG is a company who consistently produces software that protects your computer from internet threats. The best protection for a single user would be the Premium security software available for $69.99 at the moment. Don’t have cash for it now? No sweat. AVG offers a free version of their antivirus software that you can download from their site. The antivirus will offer the basic features of protection such as detecting/stopping viruses, threats, and malware. It is great if you want a quick software shield for your PC but in NO way should it be used as a substitute for full PC protection.
