    Does anyone know where I can get free virus protection for my computer. I don't want it to become infected with an ETD (electronically transmitted disease)

    What kind of operating system do you have?

    What kind of internet connection do you have?

    How is your ISP(internet service provider)?


    Answer these first and I'll get back....


    Peace & Love Lil Sis......

    Here you go....Hurry...


    I checked and Unfortunately Comcast doesn't offer free virus protect like some other ISP's do. e.g. Time Warner, AOL, Earthlink...


    Here are your options you can download the following software...

    or

    or you can switch you ISP to one that offers free anti-virus.


    Make sure you go into Windows Updates and update all of you critical updates. Window automatically come with a firewall so all you need is anti-virus, adware remover and spam blocker(optional).


    From past experience you get what you pay for.

    Good Luck..
