I love benefiting from the free use of so many different software products available nowadays. I Google things for information, I use free Apps to organize life, track exercise, keep grocery lists, etc. I use free versions of streaming to listen to music and podcasts. The only real cost of these free options is putting up with the advertisements aimed at me, which is fine with me.
When the subject matter is deploying an Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware on my computer, what is the point of paying for them when there are products available that come with no price tag?
