    If you want to keep using Windows 7 - 1. Install a free anti virus program   AVAST

    2. Install Malwarebytes also.


    Take advantage of the FREE upgrade to Windows 10.

    Install a free anti-virus,a firewall and a secure browser. I suggest the ZoneAlarm free firewall (must register),the Brave browser with these extensions: Privacy Badger and Cookie AutoDelete. A free anti-virus like Avast,AVG,Avira,Bitdefender,Kaspersky,Panda Dome,360 Total Security, or Sophos Home and don't go crazy on the internet.

    basic protection means your protection is basic. What you do is keep good anti-virus & anti-spyware apps. up to date. If you wish you can update to Windows 10.

    Get a new computer, please. Obsolete computers and OS are nothing but trouble.

    I recommend an  iMac (or  Macbook if you need a laptop).
