There are a few free anti-virus programs out there
that are fabulous, there are also many more that are not. Here are
some links to the ones we recommend.
Spyware can be a big problem if you like your
computer to run at it's best. You can have multiple anti-spyware
programs installed at the same time, but if you don't actually open them up,
update them, and run a scan periodically, they will not help you. Set
up a schedule to remind you to run them. I usually open up a couple of
them, update them both, then run a full scan and walk away.
CCleaner is another great piece of software
for cleaning up temp files and your registry. It's also great for
getting rid of things running in the background (startups). If you
remove something important however, your computer may not boot anymore, so
use this feature with caution. We won't be held responsible.
I hate annoying ads when
I'm browsing the web. This little addon works great at blocking most of the
junk that could popup. It's also an addon to your web browser, so it
would have to be installed for each browser you use.
If you find yourself
clicking on bad webpage links. Web of Trust is a browser addon that warns you
before you get into it to deep.
