If you are about to renew your anti virus there is a great deal to be had, I have been running ETrust for about 15 years and never ever got hit with a virus. I got a notice of renewal and a promo on a very complete suite, it has $5000.00 insurance against virus's and $5000.00 against identity theft. The online price is $59.95 but it can be found at Office Max and many other places with a $40 instant rebate, so you are out the door for a tad over $30 inc. the tax. Well worth checking out but shopping for!

For you cheap asses (like me) that hate paying money for software to fix Microsoft problems, :smash::smash: try these FREE software packages with FREE upgrades and downloads through the year. I have installed and ran all 4 of them on dozens of systems over the last couple years and they all work just fine.

Antivirus - AVG

Antivirus - Avast

Adware/Spyware - SE Adaware

Adware/Spyware - Spybot Search & Destroy

NOTE: ALL of these 4 are for personal use only (not to be run in a business) or so the licensing requirments say.

NOTE #2: Symantic/Norton's super duper total condom super protection (complete internet protection or something like that) package failed bigtime this weekend to fix a computer with simple trojan dialer viruses. My customer just paid 80 bucks, downloaded/installed it and it did not even recognize the viruses. She was pissed!!! I installed AVG on her system and let it do a scan and within a couple hours, bye bye virus problems. Mcafee and Symantic are slowly going down in flames.

Note #3L if you're really a slacker and don't have any protection on your computer and want a free online scan of your system visit Trend Micro Housecall.

Yes I do housecalls, but knowing your luck, I probably don't live in your neighborhood.... Or state. :computer:

If you work for a decent sized company, you can check with the tech department of your company. Every employee of my company can download McAfee AV for free by entering a trust license number. The idea is that we're most likely doing work from their home computer (like I am now), and it's in the company's interest to ensure it's protected.
