Antivirus programs

If you have Windows 8 or 10 you do not need to download or install any antivirus program.  Microsoft has included a free antivirus program called "Windows Defender".  Be sure to uninstall any other antivirus programs before trying to use it, such as Norton, McAfee, or AVG.  Then restart your computer.

For older computers - Below is a list of free antivirus programs, although most try to sell paid versions. Antivirus programs can be tricky to install, so you may want to get help with it.
