Parents Freebie: Free Microsoft Security Essentials
It’s amazing how many people don’t have any security software on their PCs. Truly amazing. The stories of phishing and all sorts of other terrifying security breaches are not just stories, they are happening to people right now. So if you don’t have any form of firewall, anti-virus, phishing filter or other such protection on your machine then get it from Microsoft for free right now.
I am not advocating that you use Microsoft here. What I am saying is that if you can’t or won’t afford paying for heavy security options like Norton (which frankly seem to just eat system space and annoy you) and you’ve lost the wonders of free AVG, then here is another option.
If you have a legal installation of Windows on your machine then you can download and install this without a problem. It’s a pretty good package, I must admit, and it provides you with anti-malware solutions, protects against viruses and spyware and other such malicious software, and it is free.
It took me the length of writing this post to install it and set it up, and the steps are pretty self explanatory. Enjoy your free computer security!
