    I see Total Defense Anti-Virus is advertising in the Facebook Security Store as "FREE WORLD-CLASS PROTECTION Includes Exclusive Cloud Based Security Assessment"

    I'm not sure if it would be worth trying or not...here's their web page for more info-

    formerly Computer Associates...if it's anything close to CA I would not install it on my worst enemy's computer...but it's supposed to be improved after being taken over from CA.

    one test I found, older results, for the security suite - http://www.av-test.org/no_cache/en/tests/test-reports/?tx_avtestreports_pi1[report_no]=114852

    I didn't even know such a thing existed!
    '..from your friends at Facebook.' Urgh.

    Used a CA security suite some years ago. I swear it sounded like my laptop was wheezing. Sure hope they've lightened the load a bit. Be interested to know if anyone's tried it.
