Are you virus protected?

Have you updated your virus software for 2014? What we want in virus software is something FAST. We want something CLEAN. And we want it LEAN and MEAN. lol I have checked many reviews on all the new virus software, free and paid. I was a big Mcafee guy – and Norton eventually for a few years.

If you want malware software – use Malwarebytes free version is top rated. Or try Avast! for anti-virus.

Seems Avast! and Microsoft Security Essentials are my current top picks.

Avast! Free Antivirus
Gizmo’s Freeware award as the best product in its class!
Runs as a stand-alone program on a user’s computer

Top pick for best free antivirus program, full real-time capabilities, behavioural blocking features, script malware protection, low rate of false positives

Default settings require certain user interaction. Bundled with Chrome browser by default (see notes).
2014.9.0.2006
81.3 MB
32 bit but 64 bit compatible
Feature limited freeware
There is no portable version of this product available.
Windows 2000 – Windows 7, Mac OS

Take care to avoid the default inclusion of Chrome browser during the install process by using the custom install option. The attempt to install Chrome will also be repeated at the program update if the automatic option is chosen.
