I know you are one of the millions of people who think that computer software is overpriced and you wish it was more affordable. Most of us use Google to search for free resources but end up on the wrong side of the Internet. Like being lost and driving onto a dead end, only to end up on a street full of hookers and pimps, but this street is an Internet site flooded with porn. Your only way out is to dial 911 or hit Ctrl +Alt + Delete.
What is my point? Most of the Internet sites that offer free anti-virus software are usually flooded with spam, porn, or viruses that will infect your computer with Herpes or worse. How can you filter the real sources from the fake? Who can you trust?
I have some news that is sure to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Anti-virus Software is free; popular Anti-virus software in fact. If you are a member of the military or a government employee you can obtain free anti-virus software online here > Navy’s Information Assurance Web site at https://infosec.navy.mil. At the INFOSEC site, click on the COMPUSEC tools tab and scroll down to the anti-spyware link, second from the top, (This will only work if you are on a .mil government cpu or at home with a cac card reader).
You have the option of downloading Enterprise versions of McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise and Norton or both. The Norton Version has some install issues on Vista and Windows 7 while McAfee works on all versions of Windows Operating System. Mac users can download McAfee Virex software and signatures for OS X, as well as earlier Mac operating systems. The sites even offer VirusScan for UNIX and DOS users. If you are not as fortunate to be a member of the Armed forces , hope is not gone. Use common sense, if you have a family member or friend of a friend who is affiliated with the military , ask for a hook up.
