Is there anything decent that can be downloaded for free?

I've used www.avira.com for probably over a decade now, without a problem. There is a premium package available, but I just use the free one.

I used to use free virus protection, but got viruses despite trying to be as low-risk as possible in my use of the internet (no downloading of music, movies, programmes etc, no opening of any unsolicited emails). It finally became so frustrating, so limiting and so annoying, I was forced to try one that I had to pay for, and I haven't regretted it either.

I went shares with friends in a year-long subscription to Nod32, a highly recommended virus protection programme with excellent daily updates. We bought a 3-computer package, paying $40-something each.

Avast! is also well recommended. Of course, I don't need antivirus.

Excellent advice. Add free versions of www.spybot.com and www.lavasoft.com/ (for AdAware) and you can consider yourself covered :cool:
