Computer viruses can cause serious damage to your computers. Most viruses can duplicate themselves and cause different degrees of damage, from wiping out all data on your hard-drive to disclosing your personal data. Installing anti-virus software can protect your computer from damage caused by known viruses. Most anti-virus software can scan a file whenever it is downloaded, uploaded, opened or saved.

There are millions of viruses created and spread throughout the Internet everyday. You need to update your anti-virus software frequently with the latest virus definition packs, which can be downloaded from the developers of the software. As a result, newly created, but already discovered viruses will not be able to damage your computer.
