Question
Hello,

I have ordered a new PC to replace a useless, old Mac. The problem is that I don't know what current freeware I need to download to protect my new computer. I know I need some sort of freeware antivirus(avg? I think). I also need a good defragmenter, a good freeware utility to watch DVDs(vlc I think). I would most appreciate it if you could provide me with a list of the various bits of freeware that I will need in order to protect my PC and generally enhance my PC experience. Thanks a lot! Geoff

Answer
Microsoft security essentials, Avira, or Comando are better in my opinion. Auslogics Disk Defrag has a lot of good reviews. Your PC should come preinstalled with software so that you may watch DVD's. I would also download ether Firefox or google Chrome as your main browser.
