Does it seem like your computer is constantly getting bombarded with ads, popups, or scammy emails?
Maybe you suddenly can't use your PC because of some random screen that claims you have a bad infection and just pay them some money and they can have it removed.
Even worse, you start noticing odd charges on your credit card bill that you know wasn't made by you (unless you did actually buy that 25th anniversary edition pet rock - no judgement).
It doesn't have to be this way!
Most times, many of the bad things mentioned above happen to you because of actions you take on accident. You think that by clicking on a button that tells you to "Click here to scan your PC" or receiving a phone call from Microsoft warning you that you have a virus, that you are doing the right thing.
But, it's these exact things that are opening up your systems to the bad guys!
