I am always asked 'how can I clean my own computer?' Most people think that when they take their computer to the expensive repair shop that the technician has miracle tools to work on your computer - something amazing must be happening in that expensive shop right? That is why they charge you so much ($99 and up) to clean the viruses and spyware off of your computer.
Five years ago I started working with a local computer repair shop - again we were charging $149 to clean the 'bugs' off someones computer. I was really surprised to learn that they were cleaning people's computers with the same tools I had been using myself - the real KICKER to this is that most of these - OK, not most ALL of these tools are FREE on the Internet and anyone can download them - you just have to know what you are looking for.
Today I am going to offer you one of the best if not the best FREE anti virus available today. This is AVG anti virus.
AVG Free provides you with basic antivirus and antispyware protection for Windows and is available to download for free.
The most downloaded software on CNET's Download.com
Protection against viruses and spyware (antivirus and antispyware)
Fast, effective security that is kind on resources
Compatible with Windows 7, Windows XP and Windows Vista
This link will take you to the manufactures web site - now this is where you need to be careful - of course they want you to BUY their product so they are going to attempt to direct you to purchase the product - so if you are looking for the FREE version read carefully and DO NOT TAKE THE TRIAL as the trial version is NOT the FREE version - so again my warning to you is to read carefully and make sure you are downloading the FREE copy.
