G Data InternetSecurity 2011– lastly, you need a solid antivirus tool. Recently I was on the phone with a friend when he guided me to a website he had recently completed. We both browsed to the site and he said “Wow, that’s weird. The page opened then went away and now my computer is doing strange things.” On my end Firefox popped up a window that said my antivirus stopped me from opening this page. It took his IT team a whole day to clean the virus off of his computer. Buy G Data InternetSecurity 2010 for safe browsing and computing.
