Free Anti-virus Software Solution

If you are like me, you are always searching for ways to protect your personal computer. Probably, the first thing that comes to mind is viruses and worms.

Along with millions of other AVG users, I have been using their free anti-virus software version off and on since 1997. Usually, when something is for free, you get what you paid for - sub par performance. But with AVG, I can't complain too much about their free non commercial anti-virus solution. Why? It has been easy to use, consumes low system resources, automatic update functionality and provides real time protection. If you want more services, such as anti-spyware, anti-rootkit, anti-spam, firewall, web shield or 24/7 support, you will have to pay for them. The free version supports most Windows and Linux platforms. As usual, this is not a paid post and other free anti-virus solutions/suggestions are welcome.

Note: Per AVG's website: AVG Anti-Virus Free is only available for single computer use for home and non commercial use - for platform compatibility.
