It’s not for me, but for a very cash-poor friend. She’s got a 4-year-old computer that I volunteered to format for her, as it’s been crashing on her a lot. She had been having problems with her old copy of Norton, so she bought an upgrade version, but mistakenly got one that wants 32 MB RAM, and she has only 28 MB. She’s already spent more than she can afford on trying to get this computer usable, so upgrading the RAM does not look attractive to her. I’d like to get it going for her as is, at least in the short run, as she’d like to start using it for her new business.
I see on download.com that there are several freeware AV programs available, some with virus updates available. Anyone have experience with these? Can you recommend one for my friend?
Much thanks for any helpful advice. My friend could really use a break. If I could afford it I’d just buy her a new computer, but I’m pretty broke myself.
