Do you have great anti-virus software? How’s the customer service? Are you sure you’re protected? Nasty viruses can creep into your computer within an instance. Freelance writers need to have the best anti-virus software to protect their files. There’s nothing worse than having a virus infect your computer and damage your files. You have deadlines to meet and your clients expect you to meet them. Make sure you select software that works for you.

Before you purchase an anti-virus software program, investigate it. Try not to be persuaded by reviews that place an anti-virus software in the ‘Top 10 List‘ of anti-virus software. Search blogs and forums that provide pertinent information that can help you make an informed decision.

Anti-virus software providers


FYI: You may want to stay away from Webroot. The customer service and technical support wait times are atrocious. The software doesn’t do a good job of protecting your computer from viruses. Also, if you try to order their Spyware and Virus Removal Service for $129.95 because you need assistance with removing a virus, you may not receive a fast appointment. That’s right! If a person is ordering the product online they could ‘snatch’ your appointment in less than 2.5 seconds! Meanwhile, you’re left with a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach because it could take a few days before your computer is fixed!

Freelance writers, your computer needs the best protection for you and your clients. You may need to spend a little money for good anti-virus software. Not only will it protect your personal information, it will protect your clients as well. Also, make sure you back up your computer files. The best way is to purchase an external hard drive and download your files. Alternatives are to download files to a USB or external file system. Take every precaution to protect your computer. It will be worth it, even if you have to spend extra money.
