Using expired anti-spyware can be as dangerous as having no anti-spyware!

We have been saying for ages that you should always keep your anti-spyware up-to-date. No matter how insignificant it seems, it can easily save your time that you might need when trying to fix your infected computer. Of course, money is also a great factor because there are lots of viruses that can’t be eliminated without computer repair services.

The need of updated anti-spyware program has recently been approved by Microsoft Malware Protection Center. According to data that was announced in their Security Intelligence Report (SIRv14), having an expired anti-spware is nearly as dangerous as having NO anti-spyware. In addition, this report claims that if you are using outdated anti-spyware version, your computer is nearly four times more likely to be infected in comparison to a fully protected machine.

So, if you have been thinking that your anti-malware, whether it is updated or not, is still trying to protect you, you should think again. In reality, viruses keep changing each day, so if you fail to update your security software, you can easily give them an opportunity to infect your computer without being noticed.

Fortunately, anti-spyware creators don’t forget to inform people that they need to renew the license of the software in order to keep receiving needed updates. If you have been bothered by such alerts, you know what you must do. Have no anti-spyware installed on your PC? Don’t waste your time and install SpyHunter. It is a powerful tool that was designed for both, companies and home PC users.
