Both of the links that I provided have totally free versions available.daz240 wrote:FORGET ALL THAT go to www.avast.comultimatehandyman wrote:Hi,
After nipping to the library yesterday and listening in on the IT guy telling people new to computers that "you must get a good antivirus software, I recommond P C cillin , for Â£20 at pc world", I realised that people are paying for what you can download for free (for personal use).
AVG antivirus is fantastic and is totally free for personal use and Zonealarm is also a great free firewall.
Both of these are in my free downloads section and are both completely free, problem is that I link to their site and they then change the page so that it is hard to find the free version and so you buy the other version.
To make it easy here are the exact url's that you need-
AVG FREE antivirus
The links work today but might not tomorrow, so you may have to browse a few pages to find the free versions.
This is the best one you will find and its free. bugger paying for antivirus
i have been fixing computers overs 10 years!
The links that I posted used to link directly to the pages with the free downloads on. The software manufacturers know this and have re-designed the pages in order to confuse people into buying the paid for versions. The free versions are there if you look for them
One of the big problems of having a website is linking to external content. One day the information is there and the next day it has been deleted or moved, one of the worst offenders of this are the Govenrment, this is why I try and never link to one of their approved documents as they get moved and deleted so often
