Re: Newbie question
welcome to computerforums!! yes, you need antivirus. when the 30 day free trial is up of whatever you have (probably norton or mcafee), you can either purchase the yearly subscription and keep up with it, or you can uninstall it, and install a free antivirus such as AVG antivirus. if you have msn premium then you get mcafee antivirus for free with your msn. the rest of the junk programs you're not going to use, just delete from start, all programs, and look under the program name to see if they have an uninstall,,,if not, go under start, control panel, add/remove programs, and remove it. besides antivirus, make sure you have a firewall and antispyware too.
