Beyond anti virus – stop the silent killer of malware

Hopefully you already have a security solution that provides an antidote to viruses. Leading security programs cover you against many things like files intent on causing havoc on your operating system, but that’s not the only thing that can attack your computer. You’ve probably heard the term malware but do you know what it means?

Malicious + software = Malware

People often call a virus malware but it’s important to know that that’s not really the whole truth. Viruses usually cause something obvious to go wrong like your search engine gets hijacked to a strange site or you get odd messages. Malware can be silently running in the background collecting information about what your doing and you wouldn’t know about it if you only used an anti virus program.

There is a way to protect yourself that compliments your anti virus. Malwarebytes is the leading compliment to protect you against malware.

Malware can come from many places not all of them dark corners of the internet. Sometimes it’s as easy as clicking on a link someone posted to Facebook and a program silently slips into your computer. Well written malicious programs might not even be visible to the user, invisible evil.

There’s too much in your computer to just have the basic protection. Your off to a good start if you have a good anti-virus installed. Get yourself a copy of Malware Bytes and scan your system and see what it comes up with. I’ve run it on dozens of computers and I’m always amazed at what it finds. There’s so many routes you can get an infection from.

When you have Malwarebytes your protection goes from this:

 

2014-06-26 13_19_25-Malwarebytes _ Free Anti-Malware & Internet Security Software

 

 

 

 

 

To this:

2014-06-26 13_19_01-Malwarebytes _ Free Anti-Malware & Internet Security Software

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pop into one of our stores and ask about Malwarebytes. Trust me you’ll thank me once you see what it stops in real time.
