    The only one I'd consider that is free is AVG for virus protection....I think they do spam filtering, too. We have QWEST and they provide free virus/spam protection.

    I use AVG free also - they seem to update several times a day - annoying, as it slows the computer down, but I guess I am being protected.

    Amandasgramma, do people tell you you look like Fannie Flagg? Every time I see your pic that is who I think of.

    AVG is pretty popular, but the later versions are pigs and really slow your system down if you're using Win Vista or Win 7. I also had frequent crashes and system lockups using AVG with my version of Win7 64 bit. After months of research, I figured out it was AVG causing it.

    Switched to Avast free and the problems disappeared. A combination of Avast (free) and Spybot S&D (also free) will give you plenty of protection at no cost.
