"A good paid anti-virus," says Zink. "I prefer NOD32. That is a good, solid all-around protection that doesn't slow your computer down."

Zink says if you're updating to a new computer, it's not too difficult to move over your old files.

"You can use an external hard drive, which a lot of us can pick up just about anywhere. Or a flash drive if you don't have a ton of files, but you have to be careful because once again, if you have a virus issue and you plug a flash drive or hard drive into an old computer with viruses, they can be transferred to the new one."
