New Podcast: Home PC Malware (Virus) Protection

I released my "monthly" Podcast, yes it's officially a monthly Podcast now. Although I cheated and used a recent radio interview for the content.

The Podcast is about basic Home PC Malware (Virus, Worm, Trojan, Keylogger) Protection, and where to obtain decent Windows Anti-Virus Protection for Free.This podcast is aimed at day to day people outside the security industry.

  1. I use email filtering services on top of my antivirus to combat malware and viruses wherever they may come from.

  2. Excellent article. I agree that Norton has improved immensely. In my work we use Norton, and does not slow the pc!, No popups interrupts such as AVG or others. At home I use Bitdefender because it costs more or less the same as Norton and also in most reviews sites is number one, as PCMag, there is also a comparison chart on the link below, where just put Bitdefender as number one, while Norton third.

  3. Thank you for the article. Everything is very accessible described. I enjoyed reading your article
