I am always cautious of these types of software. You may be downloading something sinister.

Hi chrissiehope,
TotalAV.........some reviews on the Web..........aggressive marketing......some resource issues for some users.

The general trend these days is for third-party AV to be bloated and aggressive marketing to get you from the "Free" to Premium Paid .

I'm currently using the Windows AV and Firewall.......... for me this is working OK.
UNIX is basically a simple operating system, but you have to be a genius to understand the simplicity.

I'm with Enrique on this. I also Windows Anti Virus and firewall. As I've been saying for ages, keep your Windows light and don't use any unnecessary applications which will slow your computer down, Any user who took the good advice to upgrade to Windows 10 free will also have the added backup of being able to reset their computer easily without losing important files if for some reason they do let in a nasty.
