I have been using the following programs for years on multiple PC's without incident.
This is what I suggest and recommend for the staff here at GoodTunesRadio.com.
I thought I would share this information with our listeners.
The KEY to these and all other anti-viral programs is to keep them up-to-date!!!

I, personally, have had great success with these programs, and I hope that you will as well.

Happy safe computing!


Before you do anything on your PC, UN-Install all the crap software that came with it.
Defrag the hard drive if you had to uninstall a lot of stuff.
Run Microsoft Update and get all Microsoft products up-to-date. This may take several re-bootings.

Then install the following (all freebies that work GREAT if kept up-to-date):

For Anti Virus: Grisoft AVG - http://free.grisoft.com

For Spyware protection: Microsoft Defender - http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx

For occasional use: Lavasoft AdAware Anti Adware - http://lavasoft.com/products/ad_aware_free.php

Manually run all of the above programs to scan for existing problems.

Schedule all but Ad Aware (must be run manually - about every other week) to automatically update Daily.
