Security For Windows 8

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

I need to know what security that you recommend for windows 8. Best if free but most inexpensive. I do not do alot of surfing the internet or play games.

Thanks, Susan

Dear Susan,

The security software that I prefer and use on my computer is AVG Internet Security. It is less than $60/year which is far less than many of the other security suites.

When you consider the cost of having viruses and malware cleaned out of your computer, this is a great deal.

If that is too much for your budget, AVG does have a free version. Some other free products would be Avast and Microsoft Security Essentials. Of the free products, AVG and Avast would be the best choices.

    hi susan,

    what elizabeth recommended and i use personally is Microsoft security essentials. It’s completely free to download and to use and keeps off most virusses and malware, etc. there is no software that protects you 100%

    also just read what things say. most people don’t read the messages on the screen and just simply click on things and that’s how most trouble starts.
