knowtechie.com made a post on January 26th, 2015 about curious findings done by Enigma: Apparently, older people are more prone to getting their computers infected by malware, then the youth. The most likely reasons are: older people are less likely to use new and updated (and more secure) operating systems; they mostly use PCs for web browsing, when mobile devices and Apple products are targeted by malware much rarer; younger users know more about the dangers of the Internet, having much more practice with it.

They will analyse it and create a customized fix for you.
