Secure your computer from viruses

Securing your computer it is beyond of just having an anti-virus. Couple of years ago, having an anti-virus would do everything for you to catch most of the viruses. Well, now that it is gone!!! Now in order to be fully protected you would need to have more than an anti-virus installed on your computer. Here I will introduce you couple of free tools that you could use in order to be more protected than ever.

One of the tools is Ad-Aware. This tool will scan for any time of malware and/or spyware that it is installed in your computer without your knowledge. The other tool that I will introduce to you is Spy-Boot Search and Destroy. This tool it is similar to Ad-Aware, but this one catches what Ad-Aware doesn’t catch. Last but not least, WinPatrol. This tool it is a registry tracker. What it does is that tracks the changes on your registry and asks you if you made that change. Because we know since malware its install in your computer without your knowledge with this tool you would be able to indentify if a change was made in your registry without your knowledge.
