Free Software Resources

We don’t provide services for home computers, but we’d rather see you use legitimate tools rather than install fake antivirus tools that make the situation worse. This is a list of free software that we recommend for home use and for our customer’s own home computers in case you suspect an infection. We still recommend that you purchase a full commercial antivirus product from us, they are well worth it.

For servers and business computers in a networked environment, we are an authorized Trend Micro, MalwareBytes and Webroot partner, contact us for details.
Antivirus
Antimalware and Rootkits

Use these at your own risk! If you don’t know what you’re doing you could make your computer inoperable or non-bootable.

Maintenance

– Preferred to Windows defrag because it can run while you’re using the machine
– Don’t run Defraggler on SSD drives!
