Has anyone got any good recommendations on some good "easy to use" free internet security software please ?
I help out quite a few Silver Surfers (old age pensioners) around my area as a sort of help the community kinda thing. I do it for nothing as allot of the old folks don't have 2 ha-pennies to rub together and I hate it when they get ripped off by the large IT companies out there that just wanna take them for all that they have.
Thing is I use a paid for internet security program and I haven't really played with any freeware programs in this field that are out there.
I'm looking for something that is really basic with minimal user intervention, that will keep them fairly safe as lately I've had a spate of malware and adware problems that I've had to help sort out.
90% of them are using AVG for normal virus like activity but allot of them are getting duped by fake "anti virus" programs like "Antivirus 2010" and multiple malware programs etc.
I've done some research into the following but would like to have your opinions on the best way forward ... Online Armor
ZoneAlarm Free Firewall
PC Tools Firewall Plus
Comodo Firewall Pro
Agnitum Outpost Firewall
PS. quite a few of the PC's are entry level, so could you also give an indication on any performance issues as this would also be greatly appreciated.
