Dual Security Anti-Virus & Anti-Malware

A few years ago you would install your Anti-Virus software and notice that your computer would perform at reduced speed (or to a snails pace if it was Norton).

However, most systems built in the last couple of years can easily handle running two security systems without any noticable drop in performance.

The result, is that I can now strongly recommend have twin protection in the form of a primary (Anti-Virus) and secondary (Anti-Malware) protection.

For example, your primary system could be AVG Internet Security with the secondary being Malwarebytes (or even a tertiary of Hitman Pro).

Although there is a cost to this, the advantage of better all-round protection far outweighs the cost of virus removal or the dreaded full system restore (better check those backups).

Especially when the flavour of viruses at the moment can potentially lock down your system and encrypt your data forcing you to pay for its recovery.
