Security developers are becoming so competitive that they are giving away their software to home users, on the pretext that they can sell multi-user licenses to corporate users. Their train of thought must be that the more they can get their name out in to the market and spread awareness, the more likely they are to be regarded as a strong brand, for consumers and corporations. With this in mind, you can now pick up a free firewall (see PC Tools Firewall Plus 2), free anti-spyware (Spyware Terminator 2) and free anti-virus applications.
Comodo Anti-Virus 2 beta is one of these free anti-virus suites and is from a reputable corporation. It ships with free virus definition updates for life (life of the product, not your life..) and automatic application updates. The only snag is that it doesn't appear to be Vista compatible.
