    1. Backup
      1. Carbonite – We all hate backups or we forget often.  We can use Carbonite and not need to think about it.  I strongly suggest this for high school and college students.  Especially since they loose things like USB/Flash drives and laptops.  For $60 year, it is less expensive than a college book and priceless when someone needs their 50 page paper or tax returns.
    2. Anti-virus
      1. AVG – You don’t need to pay for good anitvirus.  Download and install the FREE features.  Read the install carefully and you will be more protected for little cost.
