The best free anti virus software is free!Why pay when its free?

Why pay for something you can get for free? Its a question I have been ignoring now for well over 10 years now.Every year I would go out to the shops and buy the new Norton anti virus update for my single computer wile the other PCs have been running off other expensive anti virus that cost the earth but this year I had had it.

This year was the first year I dumped Norton and moved over to a free anti virus...yes that's right I downloaded AVG free edition for all my boxes and I can honestly say I am very impressed.

I could never understand why people would use a free anti virus but due to the economic conditions I decided I had to do it to try save money and I will never go back to Norton.AVG free does every thing my paid for anti virus but it doesn't dry up my wallet!

If you want to get a free anti virus I highly recommend AVG free edition which can be downloaded from their site at http://free.avg.com/

If you don't want to go for a free version of anti virus then I recommend nod32!I bought a single copy for my server and I things it out beats all the anti virus software by far but again if it was free I would use it on every system.

How important it is to make back-ups as soon as you finished your work!


Yesterday I had finally finished a awesome video I had made to promote the city of Johannesburg here in south Africa! After I had completed it I decided I should play some counter strike:source and have some fun and wile I was playing my PC froze.

I tried everything but nothing would work so I resorted to restart my computer only to find that I got the blue screen of DEATH!I got angry and shouted and screamed but got over it in about 0.25 split seconds and got into recovery mode.I slid all my hard drives out of my box and got all 3 of my external hard drive enclosures out of my cupboard to back up all the important data on my HDD.

As mentioned above I found all 3 of my hard drive enclosure but I couldn't find cables..I couldn't find both a power cable nor could I find my beloved USB cable I needed.This made me have to go into my garage and dig through hundreds of thousand cables to finally dig up about 20 different ones that would maybe fit into a enclosure I owned.

After I had finally found the correct cables and all the accessories I needed I plugged in My hard drive into my laptop and was happy to find al my files there(Or so I thought) I ran around the house and jumped up and down and then went back into backup mode.....

I only had to backup 40GB of data(because the HDD was partitioned) but found that all my documents in the documents and settings folder were gone :( I had lost all my important data that I had just worked on.

If I had taken my own advise and used all these services I have mentioned on this blog yesterday I would have been a happy man but I am not so happy today!

BACKUP ALL YOUR DATA WHEN EVER YOU CAN!
