Antivirus Software


Even if you already have antivirus software installed on your computer, check to make sure that it is set up to download the latest virus definitions updates automatically. If you have a virus scanner like MacAfee or Norton, you'll need to renew your subscription whenever it expires in order to get the latest updates. (New viruses are discovered all the time! If you're not updating your virus definitions frequently, you'll only be protected from the viruses that were known when you last updated.)
