As someone who has more to do with computers than a lot of others, we often get asked to “fix little problems”, on clients computers. Usually they have an out of date antivirus software that came with their computer and have never upgrade or purchased the full version when the free or trial period expired.
Then from not knowing what software is credible or suitable they do nothing – in the mistaken belief that at least they can’t infect their computer if they never install any software. Unfortunately if your computer is connected to the internet then it is at risk.
Here are a number of well known free antivirus software options.
AVG Anti-Virus Free is award winning software used by millions of people. The brand name AVG comes from Grisoft’s first product, “Anti-Virus Guard”, launched in 1992 in Czechoslovakia.
