The best way to avoid getting your computer infected is to practice safe browsing habits, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t need an antivirus program on your computer

Good browsing habits are the best defense. Avoid downloading files from unfamiliar sites, suspicious sources, or clicking on links from people you don’t know. These practices will reduce your risk of becoming infected, but not eliminate the risk. New flaws in programs are constantly being discovered, and malicious programmers are exploiting these flaws in greater numbers. Sometimes even visiting a website you trust can put at risk if a virus has been planted on that website, or on one of the links that the website may use. Typically when you visit a website, that website is linked to many others for storage, ads, links, etc. Any one of those websites can contain a threat that can find its way onto your computer.

So yes antivirus is a must, as is a firewall.

What is a firewall?

A firewall is a software program or piece of hardware that helps screen out hackers, viruses, and worms that try to reach your computer over the Internet.

Most comprehensive Antivirus programs have their own firewall built in. If not it is important to have windows firewall running on you PC. Check your PC and make sure either Windows Firewall or your Antivirus Firewall is running.
