  • Google -= Microsoft Security Essentials -- it is a download but it is free. It will help update, scan and clean your computer better than AVG, Norton, McFee and the other free downloads. It is the best one I have used

  • I tried the Windows Live OneCare scanner and was ready to punch the took hours, this is normal, and then crashed at the end just as it brought up the results! Not cool!
