Is Antivirus Software Really That Important?

MANY COMPUTER PROGRAMS become severely damaged due to viruses which can lead to a loss of important data and a corrupt system. Many people have a lack of knowledge on how the Antivirus Software works to detect and remove harmful viruses and spyware. Within this article, we, at Will Power PCS, will express the importance of keeping your computer program safe so that you can avoid the hassle of experiencing the damage that these viruses can cause. Without the knowledge of why having these programs is so important, many computer owners and businesses experience a loss of money and unnecessary added stress which can easily be avoided.

FROM OPENING AN EMAIL ATTACHMENT to browsing an infected website, computer viruses can spread like wildfire without even knowing it. For example, in 2009 the Conficker virus infected more than 10 million computers in over 190 countries. The University of Delaware states that the amount of damage a computer virus can do depends on the skill of the person who initially created the virus. “Some viruses ‘trigger’ on certain days and might erase every file on your hard disk. Others are more insidious, making small changes to files that may go unnoticed for months.” (University of Delaware, 1997) Now lets start by identifying what exactly a computer virus is. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a virus is defined as; a computer program that is usually hidden within another seemingly innocuous program and that produces copies of itself and inserts them into other programs and usually performs a malicious action (as destroying data). When you think of a criminal, you think of someone that steals and damages property, right? Same with a computer virus, it is designed to destroy. Technical appliances, such as a laptop, are not exactly the cheapest thing on the market in today’s world. That is why it is important to gain the knowledge of how to avoid these kinds of computer viruses.

ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE is often overlooked by the computer owner which leads to these ongoing computer complications. Not having any kind of protection on a computer is risky. It is the constant, daily guessing game of whether or not ones computer may be infected. Any slow loading task or missing file may have one on the edge of their seat with worry. It is a simple process to avoid a major catastrophe. There are so many different options for Antivirus Software’s in the market, how do you possibly know which one is the right one to choose? As we continue to monitor which companies stay in the forefront of blocking and having the ability to remove these viruses, we have found that, Comodo, is the best for not only removing these viruses but also preventing them from attacking in the first place. Comodo is worldly known as; “The global leader in cyber security solutions”. It contains many different features in which other software’s do not offer.

MOST ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE’S battle threats that they are already familiar with, not new one’s that they have never encountered before. This strategy leaves open a window of vulnerability from unknown threats that can last for hours or even worse, days. Comodo’s Windows Antivirus has a better approach, which is based on the concept of prevention Not detection. Big difference!

This is the place to do business with. Their service contract includes remote service, which is great, because the issues always arise during non-business hours. We just purchased a new laptop from them, and software was loaded remotely. Will is very knowledgeable and honest. We have been doing business with him for years.

First of all, Will stayed late the night I was going crazy finding somewhere reliable to drop off my external hard drive (which all of a sudden was no longer functioning). I called up to see how late they were open and he offered to stay a little later (since I was still a bit of a drive away) so that I could drop it off. He took a look the very next day and when he knew he couldn’t replace the part I needed right there in the shop, he assured me that another company he partners with for work like this is also good at what they do. He was right. It took a bit of time because my drive did not cooperate at first, but I am so grateful that I was able to get back all of the important files and photos that I had not yet backed up (lesson learned!). Will always got back to me when I had questions and even reached out again after everything was completed to make sure that I received everything with no trouble. I am very pleased with, and appreciative of, the service I received with Will Power PCs. I definitely recommend them to anyone in need of computer services! Thanks again so much!

Will Pitt reached out to me being a business next door. Since, we have done a half dozen projects together & he is by far the most knowledgeable & price friendly person/company I have dealt with within his genre.

Having just moved to the area and not knowing anyone to recommend a computer repair shop, I went to the web and am very pleased to have found Mr. Pitt. This being my 9th corporate move I must say so far this business experience has been the best for me. He is available 7 days a week and when not with another customer can sign on to your home computer and take care of your urgent needs. For the years of experience he brings to the table, his rates are very appropriate for the high quality work you receive. In fact I was so satisfied with my personal computer, I had him to do some work for the company I work for. I will say, I haven't tried any other computer service in the this area and I will also say I won't. If you have any computer issues, here is the place to take those issues as they are in good hands!

I had an issue with a brand new computer. Will opened his shop on New Years Day just so I could drop it off! A few hours later I received a phone call, the problem was solved! I didn’t expect to hear back for a few days. Will is fast and efficient.

William was really helpful towards solving the problems I had. I have a custom desktop and he was able to diagnose my problems and find a solution that didn't require any additional parts. It only took him about 20 minutes to solve the issue too! He was polite when I made silly IT mistakes and even helped me root cause with an additional issue for no extra charge. If I have more issues I will definitely return here.
