a few years ago, I naively thought that my PC would be entirely safe
just because it had a security software icon in the applications menu.
Since most of our computers were secondhand, I had not spent much time
protecting much of anything, including my daily use laptop.
Recently, though, that secondhand laptop started running about as fast as my newborn and I would spend ALL DAY LONG
waiting for pages to load or even waiting for the text I typed to
finally appear in my word document. Since a lot of what I do involves a
computer, I'm sure you can imagine how fun I was to be around when it
took all day to send one email.
sent the unit in to IT and we heard the dreaded news: it was a virus,
the kind that is almost impossible to detect until it slows your
productivity to zero. Thankfully, the computer contents were somewhat
recoverable (after we paid a whole bunch to the professionals to clean
it off again) but I learned a valuable lesson - my "security" software
hadn't been working at all and I had blindly been trusting it with all
of my precious digital files.
So, when I just got my brand new shiny laptop, literally the first
thing I did after taking the plastic off the screen was install
Kaspersky PURE on the hard drive. The best part is that Kaspersky PURE all-in-one security is
sold with a 3 computer license, so I was able to secure my new device,
my husband's laptop, and our desktop dinosaur at the same time, all with
the same software. Even better is that you can actually control the
settings for all computers on your network through one computer so you
don’t have to update settings all three separately.
