    Free security tools for pc's

    Quite a few people will be getting a laptop or pc for xmas. We all know how important making your pc secure is.

    I have made a list of the best the best free security and cleanup software for your pc.

    99% of these are for the pc, I will make a mac list if people can recommend some.

    If anyone has any to add, just leave a comment. If you have any mac compatible software then I will add those too.

    You should have 1 of each and run them periodically. These can keep your pc clean but do use common sense when online, don't open emails that you're not sure about, or download stuff that you're not sure of the source.

    Merry xmas all
