Secure your Windows Operating System with an efficient Anti-Virus

Whenever Antivirus for Windows OS is mentioned, popular names like Norton, McAfee, Avast, AVG, Kaspersky etc comes to mind. But most people do not really need the whole package that some of these antivirus carries. These unneeded services bugged down the performance of some low/md-end system instead of making it faster.

For a private/small business PC, Microsoft provides everything you need to secure your system at no extra cost. All you need is to install the following softwares and keep them updated.


Install Microsoft Security Essential: Once installed and updated, it provides a comprehensive cover against viruses especially those attacking through the USB.

USB Disk Security: Apart from visiting explicit sites or unknowingly downloading roguewares, 80% of virus attacks come through the USB. This USB Guard kills, very efficiently, any executable USB malware even before your antivirus start scanning and most importantly it does not need any update.
