Tomron's Right! Eyeof... Some Work Better On 1 Machine Or

Suit one person better by style or ease of user interface.
Many posters here like & use AntiVir (becoming Avira) and I haven't heard many complaints about it and it does update very frequently(important to check & do w/ any ).
Here's another list of Free programs (all vetted here as legit and useful)& some pay, with some advice for How To's..(various). Link at TOP of page should be in your Bookmarks/Favorites list and ALWAYS check there before even visiting a Security/Adware/Spyware site, let alone downloading any versions (some of the listed sites may infect you before their 1st page even opens)! Enjoy! Grin
