Avira and Avast

Two very good Antivirus programs, both of which I've used.  They are similar in how they work except Avira will occasionally throw up an ad asking if you want to upgrade.  Both auto update when you boot up, neither hog resources.  Both have paid Premium editions but the basic is excellent protection with a few bells and whistles missing.  I've only used the free versions.

Avira  

Avast!

AVG Free antivirus

Another excellent free antivirus program.  I have used it for years on all my machines.  I switched to Avast! for my main machine when I built it because at the time Avg wasn't compatible with 64 bit.

Just popping in to share a few of my favourite things:

  • Ubuntu - a Linux operating system that I've used for a while now (I love it)
  • GIMP - a free image editor that I use a lot of the time
  • FileZilla - my favourite FTP client
  • Google Chrome - possibly the greatest web browser, in my opinion
  • OpenOffice - a free alternative to Microsoft Office that I've been a big fan of for a long time


I think that all of the programs (except Ubuntu, hehe) are compatible with Mac/Windows/Linux -- or at least 2 of those anyway.

All great programs, poomerio, thanks for posting them.  Open Office really is a great suite of  office applications, can't believe it's free.  Actually I can't believe people would pay big bucks for M$ Office when this free program is available!  

In my opinion FileZilla is THE best free FTP client around.

There are a lot of good free image editors out there but I think this is one of the best.  And it's rather simple to use.

Upshot

Click on the "two-minute tutorials" at the top of the page and then watch Retouch.  It may take a while to load.....  All the tutorials are good and worth watching I just think the Retouch feature of this program is extraordinary.
