AOL offers free antivirus software


AOL has introduced free antivirus software that is likely to become the highest profile alternative to security software you pay for.

Active Virus Shield offers basic protection against viruses, spyware and other malicious software, AOL said in a statement Monday. The product is available to all Internet users, not just to subscribers to AOL's Internet access service.

"Antivirus protection is too important to make people have to pay for it," an AOL representative told CNET News.com in an e-mail interview. AOL offers free antivirus software | CNET News.com
