    Now, more than ever, you need to keep your computer safe and secure from viruses, spyware, and all the other little nasties floating around out there.

    Two of my very favorite programs are Avast Anti-Virus and Spybot Search & Destroy. Both are free, although they also have more robust versions for a fee.

    I use both programs on my personal computers, and I use the free versions. Why spend good money if the free version works for you? Now, if I needed more protection, I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase the upgrades.

    Avast has become the number one anti-virus program and 216 million users can’t be wrong. It works for me and, just in case you have a somewhat “handicapped” computer with not-quite-enough memory, the free version has a smaller footprint¬†than some of the others out there. ¬†

    As for Spybot… well, if you ever brought your computer to me for repair work, I used Spybot to clean 90% of the spyware and trojans from it. I have used and recommended this little gem for years!
