Why Installing Antivirus Is Important

Many people are forced to reinstall their computer or laptop and even to dump it because it is severely damaged by virus: an intangible disease that can infects any computer and damage it from within. When virus infects a computer, it will start hiding or deleting important data and forcing computer to do weird things, such as automatic restarting, which if occurs frequently can damage the infected computer. In fact, if virus infection is detected very early and overcome immediately, it will not cause any serious harm to the computer that it infects and all important data that are stored in it; however, most people, especially computer users with basic computer operation knowledge, are often unable to be aware that their computer has been infected. The reason of that is because virus infection is so discreet that it is often undetected by ordinary eyes. If it is a spyware that attacks the computer, the detection becomes more difficult because a spyware, as the name implies, is entirely similar to a spy. It has a capability to conceal itself so that computer users are not aware that they are being monitored by it. Because virus infection is hard to be detected, installing an antivirus program is highly recommended because this program can detect almost all threats that may perform malicious actions within a computer.
