Free? Sorry, you get what you pay for. I use Norton 360 and I get a 100% clean bill of health from Gibson Research:

PS -- don't try McAfee's 10-in-1 protection suite with a PC running MS Windows Vista O/S ..... it'll crash on installation and cause your PC to go into an endless reboot cycle.

1. Open Internet Explorer, Click TOOLS. Click OPTIONS. Click DELETE TEMP INTERNET FILES. When that's finished after about 5 minutes click DELETE COOKIES. You'll have to renter all your passwords for sites like LGK so make sure you have them written down (or heck, they'll e-mail you your password if necessary).
2. Uninstall Windows Media Player 11 if you have it installed (it's a memory/video card/bandwidth hog .... a huge hog). It will rollover back to MP 10 which doesn't have the little pretty pictures of all the albums but at least loads immediately (and isn't a hog!!!!!).
3. Defrag the hard drive.
4. Free anti-virus programs I recommend: Ad Aware SE Personal from LavaSoft and SpyBot.

If you don't mind re-installing the programs you use, re-installing Windows usually does wonders for me. You won't lose data, but you'll have to re-install your programs.

Not true at all.
