Lesson X - Head Em' Off At The Pass

The best way to prevent viruses (self-replicating files designed to vandalize digital data or halt system operations) from taking over your computer is by installing and regularly updating an anti-virus utility. An anti-virus utility, such as Symantec's Norton Anti-virus and McAfee Virus-Scan, vigilantly monitors the files on your system for the presence of malignant code and then automatically destroys that code upon finding it. It provides the most effective means of eliminating viruses from your computer.
Of course, an anti-virus utility is just a tool, one that works best when coupled with anti-virus strategies that minimize your exposure to viruses. To help you with this process, we compiled a list of the most effective strategies you should implement on your system.
