Free antivirus is a good place to start. The only one we currently recommend is Sophos. It is free but more importantly it doesn’t dog your system while it seeks to protect you.

A new tool in my digital shed is AVG link scanner. This handy little web browser plug in quickly scan each link offered to you during a google search to ensure that it is safe.
