Programs to improve your computers security.

Even if you have antivirus software your computer may still be at risk. Free antivirus programs typically don't have very strong malware fighting engines so there are a few applications that can help with this issue. Even if you have a full paid antivirus program extra protection can never hurt! Malwarebytes and Adaware are 2 very good free anti malware programs.

  11. I like malewarebytes, but I hate the nags they send if you ever use their software. It's not exactly freeware, so they nag you until you uninstall (what I do) or buy it
