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.) www.filehippo.com/download_bitdefender_antivirus or www.bitdefender.com/solutions/free.html
