  • Be very careful with these free anti-viruses. These free programs lets off more viruses on your computer and causes you to have you hard drive damaged. I say purchase something and do the scan then delete all the trojans off your computer. With the free programs they release trojans onto your computer. My husband was the first to show person who actually explained that to me. My computer was crashing from the free programs and I never understood why. After I purchased a program it found so many trojans (they attack your computer) and viruses that the free downloaded program released onto my computer.

  • My husband is an IT guy and we use Avast. We had been running AVG and switched to this. I like it and it seems to work well.
