Free Anti Virus Software

Free Antivirus Software

Hello Everyone,

 

A while back a staff member asked if I knew of any free antivirus software

programs. 

This is the software we use in Region 10, they offer free downloads for students and teachers.

Tools to help remove infections

Malwarebytes is good for scanning and removing malware on your computer

Stinger is a free tool from McAfee that can help remove some infections.

 

In addition the anti-virus we use in Region 10 (Vexira) has free take home

rights for employees. This allows you to install it on your home computer

but not give it away to non-employees. E-mail me for installation

instructions if you are interested.
