Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I need a good internet security program that ISN'T Norton

\015 I just got a new computer and opted not to activate Norton because I hate how invasive that program is. I need some other sort of internet security. I would like something that is not intrusive. Free is good too. What do you think I should get? :)\015

Answers :

Wow, this is a big answer. There are many free virus protection programs but I've compiled a list of free, great quality, and awesome protection anti-virus programs for your solution.

Free Anti-Virus:
  • Windows Defender
  • \015\012
  • Ad-Aware
  • \015\012
  • PC Tools AntiVirus Free Edition
  • \015\012
  • AVG Anti-Virus Free
  • \015\012
  • Avira AntiVir Personal - Free AntiVirus

In addition to the collection of anti-virus programs I would recommend some cleaning and analyst programs to speed up your computer.

Cleaning & Analyst Utilities:
  • CCleaner
  • \015\012
  • Defraggler
  • \015\012
  • Recuva
  • \015\012
  • Speccy
I'm sure you'll be happy with these programs. Have fun and always use protection!

Depends on your requirements. If you are behind a router then AVG Free or Avast AntiVirus. If you are not behind a router then as well as one of the above try Zone Alarm.
