The big question – Do I need Anti Virus Software?
The answer – YES.
What package should I get?
For most people, the FREE Microsoft Security Essentials is all you will need. And, again, it’s FREE from Microsoft.
However, if you get a lot of e-mails and spend a lot of time on the internet, you will need a more comprehensive package. Kaspersky is the best on the market and is reasonably priced. The big Internet Security package is not necessary, it also slows down your PC and is more expensive. The anti-virus only version will take care of all the nasty stuff out there.
