Don’t Buy a New PC Because of Malware
By Leo Notenboom
For some reason many people’s gut reaction to a malware infestation is to consider getting a new computer. That’s just … wrong.
I give up. My computer has been infected with malware – lots of it – and I can’t seem to get rid of it all. I’m ready to throw in the towel. Should I just get a new computer? Wouldn’t that just solve everything?
You should never have to buy a new computer because of malware.
I hear from people all the time who have machines infected with varying degrees of malware. Their goal is simple: their computer is crippled with malware and they just want it to work so that they can get on with their lives.
If that’s you, and you’re at the point where you’re considering getting a new computer because of it, wait.
Before you get out your credit card and lay out money on a new computer, allow me to clear up some common confusion and possibly save you some cash.
