    Hello,

    My current laptop security software has expired and with my life is put on pernament disability and now my husband has been very ill and we are not sure if he will be able to hold his current job, and others are so hard to find now. I don't like to beg for anything but our lifestyle has changed so much in the past years and one of my enjoyments I have is getting on laptop each day and keeping in touch with friends, family and other loved ones.

    I hope I hear back from you. I have a windows vista program.

    Blessings your way,
    Nancy Eaker

  2. You should try some of the free offerings.

    I recommend "AntiVir" or "Avast!" for free antivirus solutions.
    Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBAM)or SUPERAntiSpyware (SAS)for additional
    protection against malware.

    http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antivirus
    http://www.avast.com/en-us/index
    http://www.superantispyware.com/
    http://malwarebytes.org/

    They all have paid-for versions with additional functionality if you
    desire that, and the anti-malware scanners don't have incompatibility
    issues with the anti-virus scanners.

    You may also want to consider Microsoft's Security Essentials, but I
    recommend the others more.

  3. For an anti-virus program, I recommend eSet NOD32, if you are willing
    to pay for it. If you want a free anti-virus, I recommend one (do not
    run more than one) of the following three:
    š
    Avira AntiVir
    Avast
    Microsoft Security Essentials
    š
    You also need anti-spyware software (even if you run a program like
    Microsoft Security Essentials, with anti-spyware capability built into
    it). I recommend that you download and install (freeware) MalwareBytes
    AntiMalware
