I have a computer at my home and I am very cautious about its maintenance and performance. I take many preventive measures to maintain my computer. I have Symantec antivirus installed to protect my PC from spyware.
At the same time, I have windows firewall enabled. I want to know if my practice is correct or not. Will this affect the system performance?
Please let me know the correct information on this so that I can proceed further.
Thanks for the solutions.
