lol You thought the sales rep was attempting to pull a fast one, didn't ya. If you went to Best Buy, I know why you were looking at him or her side ways.Them folks a BB ain't right most of the time. lol E-SET doesn't clog up your system, slow it down and E-Set scan is pretty fast. These days having one anti-virus software not going to cut on Window's, especially if you go everywhere on your computer. E-Set & Sandboxie, gives you excellent protection.


thumbs up!

It was at Microcenter not Best Buy...and they're supposed to be more "tech savvy".

What's a good "free" anti-virus? I downloaded AVG but I keep getting pop-ups begging for the paid subscription.


These days free software offers you little if no protection. Most of our customers who come in with virus and malware... 9 times out of 10 are people who use AVG and AVAST. Now both of those fress services are a pain in the ass, every time you look up there's a pop-up asking your to purchase their virus protection. If you aren't carefully you end up signing up by mistake, to purchase their virus software. It too much of a pain in the ass to bother with.


I'd recommend using Microsoft's Windows Defender and Sandboxie.. if push comes to shove. Folks can afford to pay 20 bucks and change yearly. I'm sorry Sandboxie was purchased, because something tells me service and quality sooner or later will be compromised. But at the date, Sandboxie is still the virus/malware protecter its alway been.

More than likely, these days, most people who've purchased a computer are running a 64-bit Windows 8 / 10. Apple 64-bit computers is a given. For those who still are running a computer with Windows 7 or purchased a used/refurbished computer running an updated Windows8/ 10 Operating System... some people aren't sure if they have 32bit or 64bit. This is how you check.



Click on the Start button, right-click on the Computer menu option, and then select Properties. . In Windows 8, type Computer at the Start Screen and then click on the Computer search result when it appears.

P.S. If you purchased a new computer in the last five years, you have 64-bit computer. 32-bit computers have been discontinued and support from web-browser (except Chromium & Firefox ) and other computer software companies have been discontinuing their support. Many Linux OS still support 32-bit computers, Bodhi, Linux Light, Lubuntu, Mint,. If you decided to download Linux to a Windows computer, its important you know if your computer is a 32-bit or 64-bit. Still, there's a lot of life left in a 32-bit computers. I'm still using a 32-bit decade old HP computer... currently running Linux Cinnamon, for now. I'd still recommend Linux Light for beginners.

PurpleJedi: Are you considering shifting to Linux?
