Do I need antivirus for my Windows computer?

Webcam image

Yes. If you’re using a Windows computer, it’s vital you have up-to-date antivirus software running.

Windows has been the most popular operating system for PCs for decades – which means it’s the most common target for hackers and criminals. Malware, ransomware and millions of new viruses, designed to exploit new weaknesses in Windows and its preinstalled security software programs, are made every year.
