How much time do you spend thinking about protecting your computer(s) from all those crazy viruses that run rampant on the internet? If you are like me, probably not much…until you get one. And then you curse yourself for not investing in some quality internet security software.
Kaspersky is a company that offers the absolute top of the line when it comes to protecting your computers. They have some new software out called Kaspersky PURE, and it is seriously awesome. I’ve never seen such a comprehensive approach to protection packaged in such a user-friendly format. It works just as well for those who want to set it and forget as it does for those who want to “geek out” and customize every feature.
My own favorite geek, Tim, has put together a video review to give you a good idea of what Kaspersky PURE has to offer.
To summarize, Kaspersky PURE has these awesome features:
·Automatic file backup and restore functions
·An integrated Password Manager to protect your identity
·Data Encryption and File Shredder to make sure your private information stays private
·Perform file backups remotely, to protect your data no matter what machine it sits on
·Fix security issues before they become problems
·Administer parental controls so kids are never outside of your protection, even when they’re out of view
·Control over when and for how long your children can be online, or on the computer at all
·Limit access to the Internet, web content, applications, games, or social networks
·The ability to keep important information from being shared
·A communication-safety hub
Kaspersky PURE will be available for purchase beginning January 24th, but right now you can

My answer: We had a laptop that got so loaded down with little bugs and viruses. I don’t think any one of them were deadly in and of themselves, but the sheer volume of them caused that computer to slow down to a depressing crawl. It was ugly, folks.
