Answer

​Having a virus protection is important to ensure that your computer is defended from harmful files or malicious programs. College computers come with ESET Nod32 anti-virus software installed. For all other cases, there are a number of free virus protection solutions available.

CAUTION! In recent years some companies have turned to installing unwanted toolbars, adware, or even malware on your computer when you install their "free" anti-virus software. They do this to make money. Before installing free software, research it to find out if other people have had problems when installing this software.

Note: Algonquin College is not responsible and does not endorse these applications. Use your own judgement or get professional advice when evaluating third party software.
