Free Antivirus Software
Many of you know about my passion for free software. There is almost always a free version of popular software that you can use at home to save some money. Digsby was one of my more recent suggestions.
Lifehacker just did a Hive 5 on Antivirus Software. I’ve used AVG and Avast at home. Either is good, but I currently prefer AVG for my antivirus needs. If you don’t run AV software, you really should start. If you’re paying for Norton or McAfee, I’d get rid of them in favor of one these free solutions. They work just as well in my experience and take up less memory most of the time.
