    Thanks, I see the free trial.

    I just wanted to check first on comments like jamming or slowing the machine before I take it for a spin.

    I use Windows LiveCare and these (all free):

    Windows Defender

    Malicious Software Removal Tool

    Also, consider purchasing a router (which should include a firewall) for installing between your PC and "The Bad Guys" [your PC and the Web] (probably your best protection).

    I've never had an "issue/problem/virus" since incorporating the above.

    Your risks go up if you have other users on your PC and/or do a lot of copying/downloading from flash/floppy/PeertoPeer/thumb drives/websites.
