Here are some software utilities that we highly recommend.  Most of these programs are free to use. 

 

If installing an Anti-Virus program, remember that you should install ONLY one.  Installing more than one Anti-Virus program may cause conflicts and slow your system's performance.
 

You can install all the Anti-Spyware and system cleaners as they are considered passive protection.

 

The only commercial Anti-Virus solution we recommend is Norton Anti-Virus (not the security suite).

 

We do not recommend Norton 360.
