According to leading internet security firm Symantec, the number of computer viruses on the web hit 4,122,311 in 2013 (BBC Tech Report, Jan 2014) and that number is still growing, so virus protection is essential. If you don't already have an anti-virus program I will set up a free one for you and run a full scan on your computer.
