problem with viruses, but my PC guy flushed some out a while ago when
he did some work on it.
Anyway, I'm getting a new PC soon. Everything on my old PC will be
dumped to CD for easy transfer.
Will this mean that any potential viruses will come along for the
ride? Should I perform an antivirus sweep of the CD prior to importing
into new PC? Can that even be done?
How many anit-virus /sypware / email checkers / etc...software
products does an excellent setup contain?
Re: Old computer is on CD...will transfer to New PC...When to apply checkup?
Yes potential viruses may be imported along with everything else.
Install a good antivirus program on your new computer before you move
anything over. A good antivirus program will check the CD before allowing
the transfer to proceed.
Certainly it can be done.
One antivirus program, two spyware/adware programs, and a software firewall
should be present.
I am not in the recommending business about which products to use.
