After years of being “the computer fixer guy” for my friends and family, there’s at least one program I believe is absolutely necessary on all PC’s – a good anti-virus. You can spend hundreds on these programs, and if you buy a computer at Best Buy or a similar retailer – you will most certainly be compelled to.
There are many free options including AVG, Avast, Avira & others – but the one I recommend, and use on my own computers, is Microsoft Security Essentials. It doesn’t provide all the depth of the expensive programs, but as the name states it is really all that you need.
