Anti Virus, Spyware, Malware, and Firewall Software

The computer system you have just received from Reboot Vancouver does not come with Anti-Virus or Anti-Spyware software. We at Reboot Vancouver recommend you install the following free software to keep you and your computer  system running happy. (Note: Only install/run one Anti-Virus and one Firewall software at any time. Windows XP and later operating systems come with a Windows Firewall built in.)

Anti-Virus (Install One Only): Download Link:
** Bitdefender Antivirus (Free registration needed to use antivirus longer than 30 days.) or
AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition (Download the Free Version and not the free premium trail. When installing only check the features you want installed, use custom installation mode.) 32bit:
Microsoft Security Essentials (Windows 8/8.1 has its own antivirus based on Microsoft Security Essentials, that is why Microsoft Security Essentials will not install on Windows 8/8.1) Reboot does not recommend this antivirus anymore. Please install Bitdefender.
Avira AntiVir Free Antivirus (Free registration needed. Download the Free Version no the Pro version.)
Avast! Free Antivirus (Free registration needed. When installing only check the features you want installed as there maybe unwanted softwore that you wouldn't want installed on your computer.)

The Windows Vista, 7, or 8/8.1 firewall is fine. No need to install a third party one.

DVDs and other media files found on the Internet.)
