    I personally really am quite fond of avast antivirus, its free as long as you register every 12 months. A bonus is that they will not spam your email account. I have avast installed on 3 machines at home and it seems to run like a charm on each, its very light weight and does not bog down the system. It does not need much/any configuration. Another bonus is that it can do a boot-time scan which will scan every file. This is important because it means that virus’s can’t evade the program’s scan feature because the virus requires windows to be running to work.
    I have posted a link that compares it to other free AV products:

    The best free AV out there is AVG Free, it has rootkit, spyware, virus, etc protection. It updates its virus database every day, it also scans once a day and allows you to scan indivdule files, etc. It also has a virus vault for isolating viruses that have infected your system 32, etc. Its interface isnt so pretty, but its easy to navigate.

    You may want to download malwarebytes also. In its free edition you cant schedule daily scans, but you can still scan manually everyday. Its a surprisingly good program. It also offers a quick scan which only scans the most vital files which takes about 10 minutes to work. The paid version is amazing, but if you need a free one, this teamed with AVG will do it for you.

    You may want to get a good firewall. I suggest Comodo firewall. It has an antivirus built in which is okay, buy the firewall is a lot better, fortunately you can turn the AV off. Its a flexible yet great firewall with a lot of features.

    Also for extra spware and adware protection get Ad-aware. It scans pretty quick and is very useful. It doesnt allow scheduled scans in the free edition, but its still a worthwile program.

    Some people will tell you to get Avast, Avira, or Mcafee. Do not listen. Mcafee is complete garbage, it just wastes your CPU usage and nothing else. Avast and Aviria arent actually freeware, they are nagware. They nag you with popups and messages at every waking moment that you are on your PC, telling you to get the paid version. You cant do anything without them bothering you, not to mention they are complete garbage, offer little, protection and their databases are really gay to say the least.

    Good Luck
    Go to download.com frequently, they frequently have news about the best security for your PC.

    With gas prices inside a record high, there’s without a doubt that crossover automobiles tend to be more energy-efficient and thus will set you back less to use, but those who finalise to alter in their mind will need to have significant trade-offs. A lot more comparison to Trucks and Sports utility vehicles, Crossovers don’t provide comparable cargo abilities.

    One thing I’d really like to say is the fact car insurance termination is a dreaded experience so if you’re doing the appropriate things as being a driver you won’t get one. Some individuals do obtain notice that they’ve been officially dumped by their own insurance company and many have to scramble to get additional insurance following a cancellation. Inexpensive auto insurance rates usually are hard to get after the cancellation. Having the main reasons concerning the auto insurance canceling can help car owners prevent completely losing in one of the most vital privileges out there. Thanks for the thoughts shared through your blog.
