Computers benefit from having an all-in-one computer security system in different ways depending one which system you install to your computer. All-in-one computer security systems are programs that keep not only your computer safe but all of your personal information. Many of the all-in-one computer systems, such as Nortons or AVG, protect the user with their personal stuff by securing all user names and passwords. They also clean computers from virus’, spy-ware, Trojan horses, worms, bots and rootkits.

Many of the security devices do live checks on the websites that you are visiting or try to visit to make sure that they are safe and real sites. If the site is a joke or dangerous to your computer it will not allow you to visit that site or will warn you before you continue on. Having a security system such as Nortons and AVG allows the user to download and share files without worrying about contracting a virus from the person/program they are downloading from. The best thing for to me that security systems offer is the firewall. The firewall prevents live attacks on your computer while you are on it. I have had Nortons block several attacks to my computer. The only thing that is a downfall to computer security systems is that they can cost quite a bit depending on which you get and what all they cover....
