Freshen your Anti-virus, Anti-Rootkits, and Anti-Spyware

Anti VirusI've tried 100's of Anti-virus, Anti-Rootkit, and Anti-Spyware tools over the last 10 years, but it's always good to re-examine your system's security every couple of months.

I recommend using all the AVG Security Software unless you are running MAC, or of course if you are already a genius and are running Linux/Unix/BSD :)

Rootkit DetectionRootkits are definately scandalously cool but extremely dangerous because they run underneath your Operating System so that even Anti-Virus programs can't detect it, yet it can see EVERYTHING that you are doing. AVG has a new anti-rootkit program out that is available for free. Learn more and get the free download at AVG Anti-Rootkit Free Edition.

What is a Rootkit

Rootkits are used to hide the presence of a malicious object like trojans or keyloggers on your computer. If a threat uses rootkit technology to hide itself it is very hard to find the malware on your PC. AVG Anti-Rootkit gives you the power to find and delete the rootkit and to uncover the threat the rootkit is hiding.
