Frequently Asked Questions

Does my computer have anti-virus software already?

Modern operating systems come with antivirus software built in. Windows 8 onwards and the latest versions of Mac OSX are protected already. If you’re running Windows 7, you will need to download anti-virus software.
To stay protected, keep your operating system and any extra anti-virus software up to date. You should also perform regular full-system scans, and scan all downloaded files and attachments before opening them.
