Security Programs


 Below you will find a few highly recommended programs for Windows computers which will help you keep your PC safe and sound. Security is an important consideration for anyone going online today. There are plenty of bad guys out there who would love to compromise your prized laptop or desktop. Cell phone too! 

NOTE: You should only install one antivirus program on your computer. If you run more than one you are likely to cause conflicts which could actually make your computer less vulnerable. It can also slow your computer to a crawl.

 


 

 

Free and Premium Security Programs

 

~ avast! Free Antivirus

    • Avast is one of the best antivirus programs available. It has several different versions you can choose from. The simplest version, and somewhat limited is free. There are other premium versions also available. 

      I use Avast myself because it consistently finds and/or blocks malware that other antivirus programs miss. The boot time rootkit scanner in the premium versions is exceptional.

      Price: Free, $39.99, and $49.99

    • AVG is also a very popular antivirus program. Much like Avast, AVG offers both free and premium versions of their software. AVG has been around a long time, and is a great option if you are in need of an antivirus program.

       

      AVG also has a version available for Mac.
