The PCWorld article ‘Best Free Software for Protecting Your PC and Your Privacy’ provides a checklist of essential free tools for those who are “worried about security, but unwilling to spend a bundle.”
11 of the top free programs that can help ensure that your PC, files, and data stay private and protected are presented. They range from malware protection and free antivirus, to VPNs for hotspots and, of course, the Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) for taking care of vulnerabilities. “If you have installed applications but neglected to regularly update and patch them, your computer may be at risk. Secunia PSI closes the holes through which malware can slither. The tool scans the software on your system, determines which programs are outdated, and then helps you install patches.”
