Not an emergency

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Im looking for a list of Security tools to put on my computer.
I haven't had a virus in years and ive got a decent AV right now(Avast) but I still would like to be prepared. I despise having to go hunt down software while fighting a virus. I do it at work enough already.
I already have Spybot S&d and HijackThis but im looking for more ideas.
Freeware only please.

And thankee much!

Malwarebytes free edition
Super Anti-Spyware free edition
Hirens Boot Disc (has a bunch of tools on there for virus removal)

Can't think of anything else atm, except for use Linux and you won't have to worry as much.

Malware Bytes and MSE is what I use. I like it a lot better than Avast. btw "looses" in your avatar is supposed to be spelled "loses"

MSE is my favorite AV. Simple and it works. I run it once or twice a week.

Honestly common sense will get you much further than any av,but if i had to recommend one I'd say Avaira since the virus definitions are updated daily.

definitely recommend Malwarebytes free edition. other than that, just do what you're doing. if you're being safe about it, just have some free anti virus and you'll be good.
