It is possible that a computer virus may inadvertently or maliciously be inserted into the computer's RAM memory. The installed virus protection software can detect and remove viruses it knows about but there are new viruses appearing all the time. To delete any RAM-resident viruses, we recommend that you reboot the computer before you start using it.
