  • On my Windows 7 Laptop I use Avast (free) and I keep a copy of Malwarebytes (free) to scan periodically. On my Linux desktop and laptop I don't use any antivirus... don't need to!

  • Oh, and what NOT to get: McCaffee, it will randomly remove and block programs as viruses that have been used for months-years. Norton is another to stay away from. It digs itself into your hard drive and make it impossible for you to fully remove, then wreak havoc on your machine. My best friend's computer stopped working right, then crashed after she tried to remove Norton.
