Question by the Evening Son: I have just recently switched to Yahoo BroadBand . I assume that there is a free antivirus service provided?
We had no instalation materials due to the fact that we got a “pro-Installl” for Free. When i called ATT they said they had nothing for me. Can you direct me , as to what we have for protection against the Dark Arts here at Yahoo High ?

Yahoo only provides free anti-virus and firewall to members that use an ISP that partners with Yahoo to provide “Extras”. Some of these partner ISPs are SBC, Rogers, BT, Verizon and ATT. Contact your ISP for information. You must download it separately. Ask your ISP.
The vast majority of Yahoo’s members have free membership and receive no free A-V protection.
But, you are under no way obligated to install or use ANY of the Yahoo crapware, that Yahoo pays your ISP, to force down it’s customers throats. Most people don’t. Yahoo is currently using Norton (UGH) for an anti-virus, I believe. There are much better free alternatives.
If you need it, for your anti-virus needs, I would suggest Avira AntiVir® PersonalEdition Classic. It has excellent heuristics, a virus detection rate that is better than most “paid-for” anti-virus programs and is light on using your computer’s resources. Uses less then 10 MB RAM on my machine. And did I mention that it’s free!
