Unless you're on a mac I really advice you to get one. Avast, Microsoft Security Essentials and BitDefender are good free anti-viruses.

The computer I use at work uses Kaspersky which I'm not a massive fan of to be honest. However, I use AVG on my laptop and I've never had any problems with it.

On my W7 desktop I use Microsoft Security Essentials. Runs brilliantly. Silent in background, scheduled scans, totally free, nice design, can REMOVE viruses (most don't haha), scan specific folders, update the virus list on-demand, very customizable. Not a bad thing to say of it.

There's no point, I barley ever download anything. I only use Youtube, Facebook, TeenHelp & some other forums. The chances of me getting infected is very low. None of those programs you recommended would work for me anyway because I use Ubuntu. Thanks for the advice tho, If I start using Windows again I'll get 1 of those programs.

Of course not, I just wanted to see if you knew that. Most Linux users I've seen use the "No virus" card as to why it's better than Windows and Mac, as well as the free card. But I'm glad you're aware of the matter yourself so I salute your knowledge.

Of course Linux can get viruses.

It's just really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really unlikely.

Life is too

Short to spend

It at war with

Yourself.

Iím catching stars in the sky because I am fixing the soul within me. May it be from the heart a girl broke years ago or my soul simply repairing itself as it was shattered on my walk on this earth. May the stardust fill those cracks within my soul making me brand new, but never forgetting who I once was.

I use Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpywear.
I used to use Norton and McAfee but both just kept popping up and never found anything.

I did have AVG but it kept turning off the firewall and stuff and refusing to let me turn it back on. So I switched to Microsoft Security Essentials which is MUCH better.
