Anti-Virus Software

• Grisoft AVG Free - You can find it at [free.grisoft.com]

First you will want to download each of the above programs and then install them After you install them, you MUST update them so you will have the latest protection There is one small exception: CWShredder is a stand-alone program that doesn't need to be installed, but you do need to have it check for an update to ensure that you have the latest version If you don't update these programs and you are infected with the latest parasites, you will not be able to effectively detect and clean them from your computer, so remember to update, update, update

Since spyware is a bigger problem today than viruses, and spyware is typically harder to find and get rid of, I suggest to start looking for spyware first I also use the different AS software packages in a specific order so that I go after the tougher problems first and the easiest ones last
