But, if you will help your antiviral utility to act, and won't prevent him from doing its job, the computer will be safe. It's not difficult, and you'll have to listen to one of the following advices:

  • If you are not going to totally forget about using unlicensed content, you should thoroughly examine all programs that you're installing.

Don't download weird programs from the above list, and while installing another pirated program - carefully follow the installation, declining all suggestions for getting more software.
  • The safest way is to fully stop using programs of suspicious provenance. These principles related to any software downloaded not from website of its developer or licensed distributors. Of course, all pirated replicas of licensed utilities should also be considered potentially harmful. If you quit using suchlike utilities, the probability of infection would be reduced to minimal, and antivirus will be able to easily cope with this minimum.

Follow these rules and you'll clearly see their fruits: your system will become fast, workable and safe, and will be so forever.
