    I have an anti virus installed to me and my grandma’s PCs by our Technician at the Mall near our houses it’s called K7 Anti Virus think it would be good enough?

    Who else hates most antivirus because you have to pay just to protect your computer!??!? I wish there was a free antivirus without paying to protect.

    Should make a point to inform everyone that if you have a Solid State Drive(SSD) to NEVER DEFRAG!!! because if you defrag a SSD it will either break or slow down drastically
