BE CAREFUL what you are down loading, make sure you get what you want,
READ. when installing don't use the auto installer, most of the free offers has things attached like search bars, free computer speedup diagnostics ETC ETC, make sure to UNcheck anything you don't want.
FYI, I use ZoneAlarm for my firewall and Identity theft, turning off all the antivirus stuff, and I use AVG free for Antivirus and turn off the firewall stuff.. on one of my computers I just use Zonealarm for everything. if you have them both without configuring them, they fight each other ...
see this link , get tune in on free things..
|Free Firewall software, ZoneAlarm
Free anti-virus software,, AVG
Can't promise these links will work, DONT use the auto installer,
use the advanced install and UNcheck things you dont want
Software, for everyday hamming, great stuff
it has a little learning curve, call me for details,
