Anti-Virus Software

    At this time there are free versions of Anti Virus programs that I feel protect your computer.  Here are two that I like.
Avast Antivirus  - pick the free version.
Microsoft Security Essentials -pick download
 Spyware probably infects 80% of all home computers. 
 I like spybot
.
          SpyBot Search and Destroy


Free Operating System  

Want to use something other that Microsoft Windows....
   
   Ubuntu - Linux   Ubuntu is the easiest to use linux distribution. Dell uses 
                           Desktop, Server and Education versions.

Free Software

Free software is a excellent alternative to high price programs.  I use them almost exclusively.   This is just a sampling.

    
Open Office  The best replacement for MS Office.
    Google Picasa  One of the best photo management tools there is.
    VLC Media Player  Plays DVDs.  Plays music.  Records radio streams.
