How to identify if your PC is infected with viruses, Trojans, malwares, etc? Consider the following observations you encounter when using your computer. Compare the speed of your PC on the very first day you used it, and now you feel getting slower the way you operate. Your favorite settings have some changes than usual and yet some files or shortcuts are missing.
The way you open up programs or any application is getting slower than before.  Suddenly, your PC got hanged up or your devices like webcams, speakers, don’t work anymore. When you browse through the internet more pop-up and unwanted pages appear.  The program files and data are no longer in the right size usually grows larger. Exploring your files in the hard drive is not as quick as the way used to be. Sometimes opening and saving of your office files won’t work well. Notice that your PCs on the same network experience like you do.

How to prevent it from happening? Well, some of the above mention cannot be avoided for at least it would be minimized. In doing so, here are few questions to consider. Don’t you have an antivirus? Don’t you constantly update your Operating System installed in your PC? Do you install application programs usually free software/games that bundled with ads? Do you insert USB sticks? Floppy disks are now outdated. Do you share folders and file over the network with write permission? If your answer is yes, then act now, get an antivirus program, there is a free yet effective from Microsoft assuming you are a windows user. An antivirus called Microsoft Essentials. Then update your Operating System by setting them automatic in your control panel. Minimize installing useless games and application programs. Disable the write permission on your shared folder if possible. Disable auto-run on your USB sticks.
