hi there swatkat.

I read your blog for quite some time now and was wondering, which free antivirus software would you recommend? I've tried AVG (Which I use now)and avast (which I don't like), but I know there are other good free antivirus' like Nod32 and Avira.
Also, I now I need an extra barrier of protection, so I also use spybot, superantispyware and malwarebytes :o)

Hi Pedro,

You can go for this combination of free software, they are very good too:
Avira AntiVir
ZoneAlarm Free Firewall
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
