Attention Windows Users
Also, be sure to keep your computer up-to-date by installing all the critical updates available at the Microsoft Update site. Again, many modern viruses infect computers through security exploits.
Additionally, you should be updating third-party programs and plug-ins (Flash, Java, etc.) since much of today's malware is preying on such vulnerabilities.
