Have you ever second guessed your antivirus software? Have you been concerned that spyware may be on your computer? We run utilities that protect us, but sometimes things still get through.
There is an online scanner available for free. You have to manually run it, but if you ever need a second opinion or you suspect problems with performance, give Trend Micro a try. It will give you a summary when done, and then resolve most issues right then!
Click the “Scan now. It’s Free” red link. Sometimes you then have to click “Start Scan” (DO NOT click “Get it FREE now”).
The popular free choice for virus protection, AVG, announced a new version recently: (http://www.grisoft.com/us.93836). I just tested it out myself and it seems like a great upgrade.
Version 8 includes new features and a new, easier to use interface. It’s supposed to be faster, but its performance is questioned by some. I personally didn’t experience any additional delays after installing 8.0. It includes anti-spyware built in, which is great for XP users.
Version 8 also includes “Link Scanner”, which I didn’t like at all. It checks each link as you browse the web. That’s too slow for me. In the options, you can disable this (I did).
AVG Free 8 can be downloaded from: http://tinyurl.com/4or34z Or, if we routinely maintain your computer, we’ll probably upgrade you on our next visit.
