and the twist is…. it’s a boot CD anti-virus. It enables you to start your computer under another program/OS (linux), then it checks for viruses from there.
Why you ask? it’s because….
- there are times when your Windows goes down , and it becomes inoperable
- there are deep-rooted virus infection, which your traditional anti-virus will not catch when Windows is running
- it has anti-virus, anti-spyware and a system recovery tool
- by theory, it should run faster 😛
- it’s free!!
Just head on over to AVG to download it for free!
Personally, if you are only using your PC for websurfing, watching movies and IM most of the time, you should use Linux (such as Ubuntu) as your main OS. Saves you all this virus & spyware trouble to begin with. That’s my take!
