      of good free security products out there. Many are not free in a business environment, but only in a home environment.

      Completely free:
      Spybot S&D (antimalware)
      CCleaner (computer reg and general clean up)
      Process Monitor, AutoRuns, RootkitRevealer (malwware spoting and removing)
      ClamWin (AV, on demand only)

      Free for home use:
      AVG (Antivirus only)
      Antivir (AV, but no mail scanning on free version)
      Avast! (have to register to keep going free after a month)
      HijackThis! (Spot malware and trojans)
      Asquared (and a2cmd) (trojan/malware scan and remove)
      There are several im forgetting atm but Im sure someone will post some more goodies.

        It appears Avast needs to be re-registered on a yearly basis now. I have been running it for a couple of years on multiple machines and have been prompted to register twice for each copy I run.

      Really depends on what you want to use this for

      If the above list isn’t enough post back with some more details but what has been provided above are probably the better ones that you are asking about.
