I am new so in advance I am sorry if I don't give enough info or too much.  For years I had microsoft security essentials and I got a pop up saying that I had a virus and needed to update microsoft security essentials, and when I did my computer crashed, I finally got it up and running again with my backup cd that I made when I bought my computer which is windows vista (I no old computer).  Reading online reviews how microsoft security essentials giving people false pop ups about viruses.  Now I have the free avg and with this new virus heartbleed virus I want to make sure I am fully protected.  

 

Thank you in advance.
