Does anyone know an anti virus, spy ware, etc. protection programs i can download for free.
I don't want that AVG Free version, i got it and it doesn't look like i can scan when ever i want.
Any suggestions for a good one would be nice.

Mysticgeek recently did reviews of some free antivirus software on his HowToGeek Blog.
You can find links to them at http://blogs.howtogeek.com/mys.....computing/

Actually, the current AVG version does allow you to scan "when ever you want". In the left column of the main screen click on "computer scanner" - in the next screen you will find a choice to either "schedule a scan" or "scan whole computer" - click on your choice - done.
