If you are in need of a free virus protection software for your computer, you can download the free edition of AVG antivirus software. It is a trusted antivirus and antispyware protection for Windows available to download for free.
It also features the LinkScanner® Active Surf-Shield which checks web pages for threats at the only time that matters - when you're about to click that link. AVG updates easily and it is easy to download, install and use.
It is my favourite out of the free anti virus applications out there. You can easily configure it with proxies and also set it in a way that it can automatically delete viruses once detected when an external storage device is connected to your computer.
At Filehppo.com, you can download the latest AVG 2012 and also the old versions including the AVG free 2011 but note that the free Edition is only available for single computer use for home and non commercial use.
In one of my future posts, I will share with you some free online antivirus scanners. Make sure you SUBSCRIBE to this blog if you do not want to miss this.
