    My gf recently bought a new PC that didn't come with any virus/spyware protection software. I was wondering if there was any good, free offering on the market right now.

    Thanks!

  5. And if you can't figure out what virus you've got...MalwareBytes is free (and good) and can help a lot of times.

    If you want to print it all out and take it to an expert to let him/her figure it out..then download 'Hijack This'. (free).

    FortiClient.
    While it's designed to work in conjunction with one of their security appliances, the standalone client does a good job with AV.
    I have one of their firewalls.
