Viruses and malware can wreak havoc on your computer. Not only do the malicious files slow down your PC and interfere with Web browsing, some can even compromise sensitive data on your hard drive. To make matters worse, tens of thousands of new virus, malware and spyware files or applications are released on to the Internet every single day. Consequently, chances are good that you may download or encounter a bad file at least once or twice. As grim as the malware/virus situation seems, though, protecting your computer and preventing infections is not nearly as difficult as you might think. With a little planning and attention to detail, you can keep your PC running smoothly and virus/malware free. Duration: 2 hours!  Duration: 2 hours
