Antivirus Software

New PCs usually come with a free trial of antivirus. When that trial runs out you should either pay to continue the subscription or uninstall it and use a free antivirus from Microsoft.

Windows 7 has a free antivirus available called Microsoft Security Essentials. If it's not already on your computer, you can download it here

Windows 8 and 10 have built-in antivirus called Windows Defender.

We also recommend an anti-malware program called Malwarebytes. It's free if you run the program yourself once a month. You can download Malwarebytes here

Mac computers should install Malwarebytes for Mac. It is a free program that you should run at least once a month to scan your mac. You can download Malwarebytes for Mac here.
