Protecting Your Computer from New Viruses

A new virus is infecting computers and threatening the security of your personal information.

Geek Squad Double Agent Jeff Clemons explains what to look out for and how to protect your computer.

The latest Antivirusxp 2008 virus can get into your computer through fake advertising and fake emails.

It looks like a legitimate program with a Windows logo and will ask for money to remove infection.

Geek Squad Double Agent Jeff Clemons says do not send any money.

Also, the virus has many different mutations, some of which are more severe than others.

It has been known to install keyloggers on computers, so the bad guys can see what the computer user is typing.

So far, no one antivirus company can stop the virus completely, with at least some small part of the virus installs on your computer.
