Tips for computer safety: Computer Security Software

 After doing a past blog post about Browser security software time to talk about computer security software. Now you may ask why not just protect the browser and ignore the rest, the reason is the browser is not the only way malware can get into your machine. USB drives, exploits, and all other types of infection points. So here are my recommendations of software to secure your machine. All of the programs I am going to recommend are free or have a free version:

Panda Cloud Antivirus:

 Panda cloud is personally my favorite antivirus. Its light, its worked on every machine I have tried it on. It comes in to versions Free and Pro and have a very good detection rate. I highly recommend that you try it out, each new version it is getting better.


 Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a great tool for double checking your computers security status. It has high detection rates and is overall a very good and easy to use product.

Hitman Pro

 Hitman Pro uses a couple of different scan engines to scan your PC for malware infections. Very handy in case you want to do a quick double check.
