But technology has developed software security such as anti-virus and data
security software, firewalls, fault-tolerant and high availability computing
technology, and programmed procedures that promote computer security. The Anti-virus
is designed to protect computer data, it can terminate the virus from the
infected area of ??the computer. There are lots of way to secure and remove the
malware in our computer hence there are no enough technique to guarantee our
computer is in secure. There are procedure
