I was wondering where i can find a anti-virus program that is free, but also works
I use this
Here are some firewalls which are free for personal use and most commonly used:
Comodo <-Vista Compatible
Kerio (sunbelt) <- vista compatible
Zonealarm <-Vista Compatible
Avira Free <- My recommendation
Tutorial for Winpatrol
Tutorial for Spyware Blaster
You'll need spyware protection with that antivirus program both below are freeware
Spyware Doctor with Antivirus (full freeware version with Spyware Doctor)
updates are free and automatic plus automatic ondemand scanners.
PC Tools Antivirus (freeware) (just has manual updates but there free)
Added protection there is PCTOOLS ThreatFire Behavioral Antivirus and Spyware also freeware
PCTOOLS Firewall Plus (freeware)
Extra security for Registry
or you could give this a shot - they just put it up
ZoneAlarm by Check Point - Award winning PC Protection, Antivirus, Firewall, Anti-Spyware, Identity Protection, and much more.
Spyware Terminator I could never recommend it never found backdoor Trojans like little witch ad ware adverts an etc.. Spyware Doctor with Antivirus did the free version found 3 stuff on one of my Windows Server 2003 today. I could never get the SD and AV alone software to work on Server. Today installing the integrated one SD+AV scan the system found and remove it them using memory cleaner with auto reboot.
Reg Organizer is simillar to win patrol but much better xD
