|With all the malware on the internet there is always a chance that some malware may get past your antivirus and adversely affect your computer so that it is unuseable. In such a case you most likely will loose all your files, photo and any emails you have on your computer. |
In some cases the computer has to be set back to factory setting to make the computer useable again. This will distroy any files, photo and emails on your computer.
To guard against this, it is recommended that all files and photos are kept on USB sticks or external drive.
Remember, you can always get your emails from your email account with your Internet Service Provider.
