Do you all know what are computer viruses? Just like how a biological virus can make you sick, a computer virus can make your computer sick. (your computer won’t be coughing or sneezing, but it can make your computer slow, or total system failure)!! There are many types of computer viruses-in-fact nowadays there are even cellphone viruses! To learn more about cellphones, check back for our COMING SOON post about cellphones! But there are many ways to prevent your computer from a virus! Never open e-mails from an unknown sender, delete them right away!

The linkscanner scans hyperlinks and makes sure the website you are trying to go to is safe. The e-mail protection scans e-mails and doesn't allow unsafe mails to enter your inbox.

The PC analyser analyses your PC for issues such as detecting what problems are causing your PC to be too slow, how many junk files are storing up your hard drive(junk food for the computer, meaning McDonalds for humans)!!
