Free Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware Software

I get asked all the time what the best “anti-virus” software for your computer. If you are working in a business environment, check with your company’s IT provider to make sure that they don’t already have you covered. If they do have something installed, make sure you ask them before installing something additional. Multiple programs can interfere with each other and cause problems.

If you are your own IT person, here is what I recommend as far as FREE solutions are concerned.

1) For Anti-Virus, use Microsoft’s free Defender / Security Essentials.
2) To Complement this, install MalwareBytes Anti-Malware Free Edition.
3) A free lightweight little extra program I recommend is SpywareBlaster.
4) Always install CCleaner on EVERY machine to clean Windows and Browser temp files periodically.
