How about a free year of a good anti-virus?

I use CA eTrust on all the amchines in my house, and have for three years. It works. It's not as fast as some, but it gets the job done.

Here's a link for a year free trial:


Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2x2GB DDR3 1600
Win7 Ult 64-bit - Func MS3 Mouse - CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mech Keyboard

Macafee is generally poor software, scans and detects little compared to even the free solutions. The one Trotter linked is much better.
