    I have the bad experience with malware. Before that incident I did not have the slightest idea about the behavior of malware. All my command was executed in a snail’s pace, lots of unwanted advertisements. It was quite impossible for me to work. Then one of my friend suggested to use Avast, till now I am using that. I am satisfied with the performance. There is no malicious attack after I installed anti virus & internet security tool.
