Free Anti-Virus Software

Anti-virus software keeps your computer and network safe from malicious viruses that can compromise your data and computer systems.  I have used many times of anti-virus programs including McAfee, Norton, Trend Micro, AVG, and CA.  Most of these require a subscription service and many of them consume your computer’s memory causing programs to run slowly.  I recommend the free version of AVG or Avira.  I have found these anti-virus packages to out perform all of the major anti-virus systems including McAfee and Norton.  I have also seen them catch viruses faster! If your computer is running slow, you might want to see if your anti-virus software is “hogging” all of the system memory.  You can download the free versions of AVG and Avira here:
