Most viruses and malware are created to target the largest audience of computer users. Currently the largest audience of computer users are people using Windows machines and browsing the Internet with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. Unfortunately due to this, most viruses and malware exploit bugs in the Internet Explorer web browser which allow the troublesome software to be installed on your PC while browsing the Internet without your permission.
One simple way to avoid many viruses and malware on your home or business workstation, is to avoid using Internet Explorer all together. Today, two of the most appealing alternative web browsers are Mozilla’s Firefox and Google’s Chrome. Both pieces of software are completely free to use and a simple google search such as “Download Chrome” or “Download Firefox” will point you in the right direction.
So, what are you waiting for? Make the switch today.
