Download of the Day: AVG Free Antivirus (Windows Only)

This has happened to me way too many times to count. My antivirus program expires and renewing it gets pushed to the bottom of my to-do list. . . leaving my laptop open to spyware, viruses, and a slew of other nasty security threats. Rather than paying the $60 - $100 subscription fee to install a new antivirus program, AVG offers a free program that won't bog your computer down like McAfee or Norton. The latest version includes spyware protection and an easy-to-use interface. Click here to download (Windows only!).
