Mark asks…

What is the best free anti virus download for windows 7 64 bit laptop?

I am not sure that the anti virus that I have now is working well and I would like to try a different one if I can find one that works good. Thanks.

I have been using Avast! For the past 3 years now. It is a free antivirus that also comes with spyware detection and a configurable firewall. I’m on the net all the time, and have been to all sorts of websites, and up till now I’ve never picked up a virus (touch wood). I would highly recommend Avast! As it is free, non-intrusive and does not affect your PC’s performance.

The only thing you need to take note of is that you have to register your software once a year. But the registration is free, so if you don’t mind doing that then Avast! Will be perfect for you.

Edit: PS, I’m using Windows 7 (64 bit edition)

Hi Miranda,

I like the second resource that “The Old Computer Guy” gave you and the Bleepin Computer resource that TempoOne shared. After removing SecurityTool learn how to take control of security in your Windows 7 computer, http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/taking-control-of-computer-security. Also, try using an anti-virus software like Microsoft Security Essentials to help you keep your system free from viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.

Good Luck!
