What is the best software to install on my computer to protect me against a spider?

by on May 3, 2011

Q: I was told by a Dell technician that my computer was infected with a spider. He suggested I purchase software and install it to protect my computer. Which software is the best for this. I understand some don’t actually protect your computer.

    Picked as best answer

    He probably meant “Spyware”.

    For protection against viruses, spyware and malware I always suggest Microsoft Security Essentials. http://bit.ly/btJ6Jy

    It is free from Microsoft and it does a great job without slowing down a computer. Before installing it make sure to uninstall any old anti-virus software you have installed.

    Thank you Mark! I wish I had this info last night. I purchased Spy Sweeper by Web Root last night. So, I went ahead and downloaded the Windows free version. I should be well protected.
