Free Antivirus Software

AVG Pro Do you find your Windoze-powered computer infested by virus most of the time? Your 30-day free trial antivirus package that came with your computer has already expired? Maybe it is time to grab some commercial grade antivirus software — for free! You can either download AVG Pro 7.5 for free until Jan 17, or buy Norton Antivirus 2007 for $39.95 from Harris Technology or OfficeWorks, and then get $40 back from mail-in rebate (effectively free after all).

Fortunately my primary computer (my work laptop) comes with CA eTrust Antivirus that is frequently updated, and my wife’s laptop runs AVG Free Edition — no problem so far. Although personally I hates antivirus software as it adds more overhead when you open applications, download files, etc, but it is kind of a necessary evil when you are unfortunately enough to run Windoze everyday. It is not the matter of “I don’t visit dodgy sites, I run Windows update every 2 days, and I will be fine”. There have been cases of 0-day exploits on pwn3d legitimate sites…
