Free Antivirus Software Guide

Some vendors give away free antivirus software which provide basic protection against a variety of computer threats including viruses and other malware like Trojan horses and spyware. Yet, please note that some of these vendors have reserved the URL scanner to their premium editions. So make sure that your malware protection software includes an URL scanner, or add it (e.g. free AVG Link Scanner ) to your free antivirus solution as you can get infected merely by browsing an infected web site in a so called drive-by download!

Here you will find reviews and links to the best free virus scanner software along with plenty of other useful tips and tricks:
