I had bought a new computer and within a few months it started acting very strange. My computer was running frustratingly slow, and it would shut off on its own frequently. I suspected I had a virus, but I wasn't sure. I called my uncle who most would consider a computer expert. (He works for a company that builds firewalls for large commercial businesses. ) I explained how my computer wasn't working properly and how I had only bought it a few months ago. He diagnosed the problem as spyware, which is a virus, and told me that I would need to buy an anti spyware/virus program.
He recommended some products which he considered the best. He explained what I needed to look for in anti spyware/virus program. He explained that the program should include, scanning, removal, and protection from spyware. He also explained that the program needs to be up to date on technology and offer frequent updates. The reason for this is because spyware is always growing more and more advanced and you need a program that can keep up with its evolution.
He told me that the products he recommended would cost between twenty and thirty bucks. This is a very small sum compared to if I had to purchase a brand new computer. I checked out some of the programs online and downloaded the one which my uncle claimed to be “the best". He said that his company uses it, and that it works very well. The program worked well, was easy to use and within minutes I had removed the spyware from my computer. My computer has been spyware free ever since. I definitely recommend this anti spyware/virus program.
