Anti-Virus and Security

Microsoft Security Essentials

Microsoft Security Essentials provides real-time protection for your home or small business PC that guards against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. Microsoft Security Essentials is a free download from Microsoft that is simple to install, easy to use, and is automatically updated to protect your PC with the latest technology.

Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition

Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition offers business-grade protection free for home use. And the protection literally is business-grade – the free version is based on the same Mac virus scanner Sophos uses in their Endpoint Security line. Best of all, Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition detects both Mac and Windows malware. For example, if you use Parallels with a Windows virtual machine on your Mac, files in shared folders on your Mac will be scanned for both types of threats.


Whether you just want to protect your own devices or the whole family, this is the right solution for you. You’ll get free antivirus plus AVG Zen so you can add unlimited PC, Mac and Android devices-in any combination-and easily keep tabs on them all from a single screen.
