Anti-Virus Free for the Taking
There's one big pain for those of us with multiple computers: keeping anti-virus software up-to-date and paying for the darn stuff!
For low-end uses, Microsoft has an answer, and it's free. Microsoft Security Essentials, formerly code-named "Morro," is now present and ready for download. Just make sure you have a legit copy of Windows before you download it.
This software runs on XP, Vista and Windows 7. And it can protect the Windows 7 XP virtual machine, as well. You don't want to secure Windows 7 and leave XP Mode unprotected!
Are you happy with your anti-virus/anti-malware software? Tell us why or why not at [email protected].
