Protect your security, privacy and personal data

by Kurt Knutsson

The increase in destructive malware circulating is becoming a bigger concern by the fact that it is unpredictable. Wartime digital weaponry knows no boundaries and will inevitably create damage to unintended targets. It is imperative that you protect yourself including all of your devices.

In our latest top antivirus recommendation article, many readers asked us how to install our top recommendation of TotalAV onto all your devices.   Here’s how to do it.

Be sure to follow the instructions below.

 

First, uninstall any other antivirus already installed on your computer

Because antivirus with real-time protection runs diligently in the background of your computer, having two such services installed at once will prevent each other from providing any protection at all.  This is especially true of Windows.  To have success with TotalAV, please uninstall your other antivirus programs on your computer.  To uninstall Windows Defender – the most common Antivirus app that comes pre-installed on Windows, please follow these steps.
