Grace Virus Be Gone









Virus Checkers

Which is the best Virus Checker?

I recommend the free one, Microsoft Security Essentials. The program is free if you are running Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7. When you purchase a new computer, Microsoft Security Essentials is not always installed. When it is not installed, this gives the computer salesman an opportunity to sell you a virus checker. If you need help finding out if a virus checker has been installed on your computer, give me a call. I will be glad to show you if you have one for no charge.

What about the other Virus Checkers?

They are okay, but at the end of each year, you need to feed them money to keep them running. When the virus checker displays the "Subscription Expired" message, people just ignore the message. After about 30 days, the virus checker stops working. Nobody notices that the computer is unprotected until a virus appears. I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials because you do not need to need to keep feeding it money. Microsoft has a list of virus checker companies on its website.
