Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Virus Protection

I have observed that no Anti-Virus software gives you complete protection. Whether its from big known companies like : Norton, McAfee, AVG etc. To Keep your computer safe, try not to click on any unknown advertisements or links on the websites. Keep your Anti-Virus softwares up to date. In case, if your computer is infected than try to use malwarebytes and update it before scanning your computer. Remove all the infections and quarantine items on the software and restart your computer. It will be free from viruses.

There are dozens of virus protection programs out there.

Avast! and AVG are the highest rated free antivirus programs.
Norton (Symantec) and McAfee are the best known for the ones you buy.

Depending on who you use for internet access, they also may have free access for you to get Norton or McAfee.
Right now, both Comcast and CenturyLink give you free Norton antivirus.

Can the experts here recommend a free antivius which does not slow down the system and at the same time provides reliable protection. I have tried a few and all of them did slow down my system. Thanks.


Norton Anti Virus is the best Anti Virus Software out there. Good alternatives are AVG and McAfee.

We are a Church and do not have a credit card to enable me to renew Anti Virus Protection online. Is it possible to be billed and pay by cheque?


Do not renew your subscription. I am guessing it is Norton(Symantec) or McAfee, unfortunately both of these once reputable anitivirus applications have become loaded with a lot of intrusive software that eats up system resources and slows your computer down.
Use a free antivirus application like AVG, Avast or NOD32. These free applications are just as good if not better to be honest, than either Norton or McAfee.
Here is a link to download the free version of AVG 8.0.

I am the securities moderator on another forum and AVG is by far the most popular antivirus package.
