In order to protect your computer from different viruses and other malicious things that can get in to your computer is to install some security software like anti virus and anti malware software. For a good anti virus that is free you can go to Avast or Avira they are free and do always update the database with the latest update and can protect your computer always.
For additional security on your computer you can also use this software for malware removal its called Malwarebytes. All of this software are free and they work great for me and you can download them from download.com.

Antivirus is basically a protection against viruses....

Basically it protects your pc from worms, trojans and viruses...

A computer worm is a self-replicating computer program.It uses a network to send copies of itself to other nodes (computerterminals on the network) and it may do so without any userintervention.

A Trojan horse, also known as a trojan, is a piece of malware which appears to perform a certain action but in fact performs many different forms of codes.

A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer without permission or knowledge of the user.
