While going through PC-security related forums, I came across a strange discussion about ‘why Antivirus is required for PC’. After going through more forums, I came to know that it’s nothing any strange, but quite a common question that is asked by almost every second PC user. If you are also one of them who have not installed antivirus because of not having knowledge about its benefits, its need, then I suggest you to read out the below section. Here, I’m listing the reasons why does your PC require an antivirus.
Protect Your Files
I bet that you are having many important files saved in your PC. Oh! You have important files and still asking why there is need of antivirus? Quite shocking! Just consider the situation that your PC has got infected with virus and you no longer have access to those ‘important’ files. So, what’s the solution now? Sorry! There is no solution now. Well, if you don’t have antivirus installed in your PC, then this horrible situation can turn into reality anytime soon. Before it happens so, better install antivirus and protect your files from virus, malware, spyware etc.
Improve Performance of Your PC
So you have a complaint that your PC’s hardware is top-notch, but still the performance is poor? Before you go and break head of your PC maker, better understand the real reason behind the poor performance of it. The real reason is- infected files, spyware, virus etc. In most of cases, these stuff lower the performance of PC. Kill all these performance-killer stuff by using an antivirus on your PC. Antivirus can find out the issues causing slow performance, and then can solve those issues, as well.
Browse Internet Safely
There are many naughty brains on the Internet, who are not there to make web better, but to make it as worse as possible. They do so by spreading virus online. While accessing the web, this virus can reach your PC and can do the silly work for which it is meant. The only way to stop virus to reach your PC, is to use an antivirus. The antiviruses getting developed nowadays are more focused on providing high-end Internet security. So, if you use Internet, then antivirus is highly mandatory for you.
Protect Your Privacy
Got some private business related files in your PC? Use internet to do shopping, or any other money related task? If yes, then not having antivirus installed in your PC is like giving an open invitation to hackers who are always looking for such chances. The privacy protection is important, and I don’t think there is any need to explain that. This privacy protection comes by using antivirus.
Reduce Future Repair Costs
Since PC is a machine, so you should keep money with you to carry out the future repair costs. If you don’t use antivirus, then keep some ‘heavy’ money with you, as in such case, your PC will be in need of repairs quite frequently. Antivirus provides protection, keeps the software part of PC secure, and thus results in reducing future repair costs.
