I recently was reminded about how vulnerable our computers are to the nasty virus. Thanks Lucy! I think we should all watch this video to learn more about computer viruses and how they can affect our computers. I know this may sound like a deterrent, but…. if your computer is ill-equipped, then clicking on ANY link may be treacherous, even the ones on this blog!!!

See, I use a Macintosh computer. It’s commonly accepted among computer geeks, and the computer industry that Macintosh’s operating system, OS X is NOT a major target for computer hackers and virus programmers, because it is only a minority of the computer population. However, Windows computers are THE major target, and this means that you are probably at risk. When Macintosh/Apple computers become a large enough slice of pie, they will probably also fall prey to the elusive hacker!

Make sure you have the anti-virus software that is recommended by the computer geeks! Don’t settle for the expensive kind!

Look at this webpage to read about computer viruses, and at the bottom, watch a video about computer viruses!
