My Favorite Anti-Virus Protection

Almost every computer I get on, that isn’t mine, has Norton or McAfee on it. If any of you know me, you know I am NOT a fan or either of those. Most computers come with those pre-installed on them, since they have a contract with the vendor. It’s a money-making thing, in my opinion.

If you use Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, or 7, you can use Microsoft Security Essentials for free. I use it and love it! One of my favorite things about it is that it does NOT slow down your machine like other anti-virus protection does.

Try it today and remove all other protections you use.

The best way to prevent viruses is to prevent from getting them in the first place. Here’s a few things you can do:

  • NEVER click on any weird links.
  • Do NOT open weird emails.
  • NEVER download illegal music, TV shows, movies, etc. Surprising how many viruses come with these.
  • Do NOT go to weird websites.


  1. I really wish that all the freaks out there who are creating these viruses would use their computer genius for something more productive and healthy. So far, my computer has been safe, but I was looking at posters for the state fair last year on Matt's desk top pc, and a virus was attached to one of them...I mean, who sits around and thinks up ways to make state-fair posters contaminated? Sick. I admit, I accidentally have NOrton, but as soon as it expires I'll use your free one. :) Thanks.

  2. I would to the list by saying not to download anything from a site that you do not trust. If you need a driver for a piece of hardware, download it from the manufacturers website. If you let your kids play games on your pc, make sure that they are flash games and not ones that you have to download. Even then you need to be careful on those websites also.

  3. Or just get a Mac ... no problem with viruses ;)
