PC Tools

First of all, they assured me that the annual re-charging of Spyware Doctor for the paid edition is accompanied by a host of warnings when the date comes due.  That makes me a bit easier in mind.  The free version is excellent.

They also have a free anti-virus edition.  The page you’ll go to if you follow the link doesn’t call it anything more than that.  I think that’s a bit fetching in this day and age of high-flown descriptions a mile long.  We still have a current subscription to Norton 360.  Consistently according to tests all suites and tools have their short-comings, with Kaspersky recently coming out “best” repeatedly.  There’s no “free” version beyond a 2-week trial, and it’s expensive.  Kaspersky labs have also consistently identified badware first.  The “best” achieved is quite consistent.  It’s also eighty bucks.

The PC Tools anti-virus is for Windows 32-bit only.  No XP Pro.  Etc.
