Also, download the excellent free firewall called Zonealarm from and install it before you go online. A word of caution, Zonealarm tends to switch your Windows Firewall off by default.

The next free tool I suggest is the anti-spy tool Spybot Search and Destroy from This is absolutely free, offers manual updates up to twice a week.

The function of this software is to guard your open ports from intruders, plugs loopholes from malicious software, Trojans and password stealing software. Keep scanning your PC every week and download free updates to keep fresh anti-spyware vaccines at hand.

Lastly, download the free anti-virus AVG from and keep updating the anti-virus vaccines once a day. Scan your PC at least once a week with this software for any hidden viruses.

As for maintenance, you can keep your Windows registry free of garbage by downloading the free registry cleaner from and running this application at least once a week. Your PC will continue to run as fast as a new one as long as you use this application.
