Computer Virus Protection

October 10, 2013

Ever wonder what the best computer virus protection is?

If you are are in the Kansas City area, including Overland Park, Olathe, Shawnee, Lenexa, Leawood or Prairie Village, we are computer virus protection and removal experts!!

One of the easiest ways to keep from getting a computer virus is to make sure critical programs are fully up to date with their software patches.  Every month on the second Tuesday, Microsoft releases updates, patches and security bulletins for their operating systems and programs like Internet Explorer.  Its referred to as ‘Patch Tuesday’ and your computer should already be set up to download and install these updates automatically.  In addition, Adobe and Java also regularly release their updates at the same time.

Generally, these updates don’t improve the program or make it any different for the user.  Instead, most of their updates are to plug security holes that a computer virus can use to get into and stay on your computer.  While some Internet security or Anti-Virus programs MAY catch one of these viruses, we regularly see computers with active and working security but infected with multiple computer viruses none-the-less.

Staying on top of all these updates is a pain for most computer users.  That’s why our Complete Computer Care program does it for you!  In addition to monitoring Microsoft, Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash and Java, we also monitor nearly 40 other software packages that the computer virus writers use to infiltrate a computer; including, iTunes, Google Chrome, Firefox, OpenOffice, Skype and Spotify.  Whenever a new update is released, we apply the update behind the scenes so you don’t even know its going on.  Its like having a house cleaner that you never see!!  Patch management is critical to having complete computer virus protection.
