Pay for antivirus software from biggies like Symantec/Norton or Kaspersky and it’ll cost around £40 per year. Yet you can get free software which, while not quite as effective as paid-for programs, still keeps on top of threats. Regardless of which route you take, remember:
Hackers develop new bugs constantly. All these free antivirus services offer regular updates, so make sure you get them.
It’s not just about how up-to-date your software is. If you’re not using it, what’s the point? Try to fit in a full “on-demand” scan once a week, where the virus scanner flicks through all the files on your hard drive. This should make sure nothing slips through the net.
