Only use one Anti-Virus program. BGD prefers Avast Antivirus. The Free version should be fine for
most people although you can upgrade for additional security features. Avast AV does thorough and fast
scans and updates automatically. My second favorite Free Antivirus is Microsoft Security Essentials. It
has an easy to understand interface and does fast scans..
Avast Free Antivirus
Microsoft Security Essentials
AVG Free 2014
Avira AntiVir Personal Edition Classic
