Here Are 3 Important Tips To Help Keep Your Personal And Financial Information Safe:

1. Don’t Always Trust Your Anti-Virus Software. Get A Second Opinion.

Did you know that some of today’s computer viruses can bypass, or even disable your existing anti-virus program? There are millions of people around the world currently infected with malware and they have absolutely no idea. To make matters worse, every day more and more malware hits the market designed to infect our PC’s, Mac’s and even our smart phones.

How can you find out if you’re infected?

If your current anti-virus program hasn’t detected anything, we still highly recommend that you download and install a trusted third-party scanning tool like SafeBytes. You can run a full system diagnostic scan absolutely free, and it should only take 5-10 minutes before giving you a breakdown of any potentially harmful files or programs found along with instructions for fixing/removing them.

Even if you are not “computer wizard”, the software offers easy to follow instructions. Just click here to download, then double click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen installation instructions.
