Daily deal – free security software for your computer

Today’s daily deal is not exactly travel related, but it is a necessity if you plan to take your computer with you on a trip, and use it in any public locations.

A-Squared anti-malware normally costs $39.95, but for just one day, it can be downloaded for free. This security package protects you from malware, spyware, trojans, keyloggers and a variety of other nastiness. When you connect to a public wireless hotspot, or even a wired connection in your hotel, you always run the risk of someone attempting to take control of your machine, or trick you into downloading spyware.

You even get free daily updates for one year, which means you’ll always be protected against the most recent threats.

There are 100’s of similar packages, including some free versions, so I’ll let you be the judge of whether this version is right for you. After reading the reviews and taking it for a spin myself, it really does seem to be one of the best in its class.

You have until tomorrow evening to download and install this free package, after that it’ll go back up to $39.95.
