How to protect my PC, Free virus scan

Desktop support is not what I like to do, too many of my friend would like me to go clean up thier PC. No way I'm not going to be spending hours cleaning somebody else's PC. I usually answer to my friends; sorry I'm a mac/linux guy. We don't really get virus...

Anyway I saw an article today: How to take better care of your PC in '08

Here what you need to know:

Free options exist, such as AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition ( and Ad-Aware 2007 (, but many users choose more robust pay-for-use programs, like Sympatico Security Services ($6/month), Norton Anti-Virus 2008 (; $39.99), Windows Live OneCare (; $39.99) or McAfee VirusScan Plus(; $39.99).

and keep your windows up-to-date with all Microsoft patches.

I hope this help, and please don't ask me to fix your PC :-) Imagine if I was asking you to come pick up to 4 weeks of 2 dogs pup in my back yard when it's 8 F outside. (I'm having one of those day today, and it's only 7:30 AM :-(...)
