There is no question that everyone needs virus protection software and there are many anti-virus programs out there, some commercial, some of them even free. They all share common concepts - a database with virus definitions, against which they compare your files. But any new virus, any new threat will not be detected unless the company offering the virus protection updates their database of virus definitions. And this usually happens a few days after the original attack, and for some users this might be too late. Most computers stay online all the time. The risk of receiving an infected document, and allow it to spread in your entire computer is very high.
