Just read a post in another room in AO about the amount of SPAM and viruses going about - thought I'd pass a few handy links to software I use to my favourite AO room:).

So there is no excuse to be infected or to spread viruses...

Free AV software.

Free Anti Spam Software (kind of Anti Spam - it will help remove your address from lists and you can view all your mail on the server and choose to download.)

And of course at least once a month for you MS users.

The big brother to the Free AVG (AVG Professional) by default checks and performs any updates on a daily basis, at one point there was 3 or 4 updates coming out a day, they're really on the ball.

<salespitch>
FYI the full version of AVG is only £19+Vat for 2 years of free updates. see http://www.dotuk.net/products/avg/index.php3 if you want a peek, can download the free trial of the full version aswell if interested.

I run 2 anti-virus on my work laptop.

McAfee ASAP which the company have a corporate license but this does not have email scanning

and Panda Anti-virus which includes email scanning and we have a 20 user license.

I use norton on all my home computers but don't run it with other antivirus because it seems to work so well.

A good place for 'free' software is http://fosi.ural.net/
