I always just use free stuff, then went i get a virus i just get rid of it, most viruses are very simple and easy to predict as they install in very similar areas and try to the same takes as other so once you had a few they become very easy to get rid of.

The free stuff are usually virus scanners which get viruses out of your system once they are in. You want a package that keeps the stuff out. Viruses aren’t the least of your worries though, the chances of picking up spyware or receiving a network attack is bigger. A virus will get in if you allow it to (e.g. downloads/attachments). Network attacks and spyware happen unannounced.

Guys, for Windows there is Microsoft Security Essentials. You don’t need anything more than that. Remove all the 3rd party crap and install only that thing. It’s free and from Microsoft.

It amazing how few people know about this. Install it and you will forget its even running, excellent free software.
