New computer set up

Post by prespeach on Sat Feb 04, 2012 12:01 am

I bought a new computer today and it came with a trial of norton in it. I don't like Norton or Mcaffee and it seems my norm of Avast let a nasty trojan into my old computer so I am not sure what to put into the new one. I have a Toshiba with Windows 7 which is also all new to me. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Welcome to GeekPolice.net!!
Personally I like Avast but there are other Free options:

Microsoft Security Essentials: Free download and information can be found here


Panda Cloud Antivirus: Free Download and information can be found here
