Anti-virus or Spyware for college students

Tags:

Spyware
There are many Anti-virus and Spyware downloads out there that boast they are free, but either are not OR collect information about the user that is intrusive. Is there a program out there that you would recommend for college students who would be able to get a deeply discounted rate or even free while enrolled? We Ramen Noodle folks would really appreciate it!

    I have used both of these free options with good results. Avast and AVG. There are others that I have used in the past that work well and also are free like Spybot Search and Destroy for real time protection. If you are looking for an as needed scan program they 2 I use, both free, are Malwarebytes and MWAV by eScan.

    This just popped in to my head. Check with your college or university. They may have an arrangement with a company or know of those that give discounts. I know if you are a student you can get some software free to use as long as you are a student. I think this i done by having a valid e-mail for an educational facility.

    From the tools Todd mentioned, I have used AVG, Spybot S&D and Malwarebytes. Very good tools indeed.

    You can go for Avast free anti-virus & it works fine. At least for my case. Only a free registration is required.
