We Know that, despite the widespread use of anti-virus, over half of the country’s computers are infected with viruses, we must conclude that the infections are due to bad habits cultivated over the Web, than to the inefficiency of virus. So, I prepared a few tips trying to get away as much from poisons.

- Performance Degradation.
Computer does not turn over the command of Windows, just take the socket. Lock all the time. It is too slow. Resumes alone, you’re infected.
