A computer virus will damage your computer and could destroy your data. You should install a virus scanning software on your computer. There are free virus scanning programs on the Internet, I recommend these. Microsoft Security Essentials http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5201
I assume you are looking for a good free anti-virus? If so, you might try AVG free. I love Online Armor for a great firewall, and AVG for anti-virus if you don't have Online Armor paid version so you can use the anti-virus part. As long as I've had both of those, I've never had a virus. I do get trojans in a download sometimes, but they catch it right away. Hope that answers your question. :) If not, ask again & tell us more info so we can answer better, OK? :) Thanks.
MSCONFIG allows you to stop programs from starting up when you boot up your computer to windows. This is good cause it will allow your computer to run quicker and more efficient cause less memory will be used. Virus protection is important cause it protects your files and Operating System from corrupting on you due to infections from spyware, malware, trojans, viruses, etc. A good free one if you don't have Mcafee or Norton is AVG and its free on the internet from: free.avg.com
Everybody has different opinions on what anti-virus program is good so decide for yourself which way you want to go. Hope this helps.
