Best Free Antivirus Software

Antivirus software provides an essential layer of protection from a multitude of virus, trojan, worm, spyware, adware, dialer, keylogger and rootkit infections. Traditionally antivirus programs just detected viruses and spyware removers just detected spyware but nowadays the boundary between antivirus and spyware removers is unclear. Most current antiviruses have at least reasonably good detection rates of all forms of malware.

Malware includes viruses, trojans, worms, spyware, adware, dialers, keyloggers and rootkit threats that perform malicious activities on a computer. With the huge increase in malware, antivirus software cannot keep up with detecting all of it. But using more than one real-time antivirus uses much more system resources, can cause conflicts and even reduce protection.

Avira AntiVir Personal Edition is a protection for spyware and rootkit threats

Microsoft Security Essentials is apersonal favorite; with gooddetection rates, particularly for rootkits.

Windows Computers – Backup
Brand-new PCs are pristine examples of perfect operating system performance, right? Ha! Buy a name-brand computer and you’ll likely find it filled with shovel-ware and other crap that the manufacturer is paid to include. Before you try to do any serious computing, run PC Decrapifier and it will delete a lot of the pre-installed junk you’ll never, ever need.
Ever thought what you do on a computer screen was worthy of being made into a movie? CamStudio will make it so, recording all your on-screen actions—even audio to accompany it—and it can turn the whole thing into an AVI or SWF for streaming via Flash.

196. Windows Live Movie Maker
It used to come with Windows XP; now Movie Maker is part of Windows Live Essentials, so you download it separately for Vista or Windows 7. This is a completely new program and ties in tightly to other Live components like the Live Photo Gallery. Another sign of Movie Maker’s relative modernity: it uses the “ribbon” interface introduced with Microsoft Office 2007. For easy Windows video editing videos, it’s hard to beat.

DisplayFusion v3.1.8
If you’re lucky enough to have multiple monitors, and you’re looking to get more from the experience, try DisplayFusion. It gives each its own unique wallpaper (with integrated search on Flickr), the ability to display more with the Titlebars at the top of each window, hot keys to move windows from system to system, and more.

Skype 4.0
Windows | Mac | Linux | Mobile | Portable
Practically synonymous with VoIP and now with one-on-one free video conferencing, Skype offers its core function—PC-to-PC communication—totally free. That goes for talking to Skype users on smartphones as well. Skype has gotten so big, entire phone systems have been built to use its backbone. You only pay if you want extras, such as the ability to call landline phones or built-in voice mail, but even those are super-cheap compared to what’s offered by traditional providers.
