I am trying to understand the different types of protection that a computer needs.
This is what I have learned:
-You cannot have multiple anti-virus software on your computer, because they will interfere with each other
-You need to stack up other anti-malware software, the more the better
-You can not have two firewalls on one computer, but you can have a firewall on a computer, then a firewall on the server that the computer is a part of.
But if anti-virus is a type of malware, why is it that you can stack the other types- but not virus protection?
How does the firewall on the PC that goes through the servers firewall not conflict?
Thanks for any information, I'm just struggling with how things ACTUALLY work. Its fine that this is the info that my teacher/my book want me to know, but I need to know WHY as well :)
