Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware - Free Solutions
I've had the pleasure of cleaning out some heavily infected computers recently. I did some experimenting with some new programs and have found a set that I particularly like. For a free anti-virus, it doesn't get much better than AVG Anti-Virus. Now keep in mind that if you're looking for a new anti-virus solution, uninstall your old one completely first. Anti-virus programs don't work well together. Anti-Spyware programs, on the other hand, do work well together. In fact, using more than one is recommended, as each has their own advantages and disadvantages. One of the programs that I found to work well was SuperAntiSpyware. This is a recent find for me. If your computer is heavily infected, though, running a series of programs such as Spybot Search and Destroy and the free version of Ad-Aware. AVG also has a pretty good anti-spyware, but it's a separate download, so if you're still feeling unprotected, that would be another choice.
