    Hi everybody,

    I have a Dell Inspiron laptop, and I do a lot of schoolwork, as well as work from home. Recently, I have been getting different pop ups saying "Congratulations!, You won a said amount of money" while I was using Mozilla Firefox. The issue never occurred when I would use IE. But Mozilla is more fitted for me. The load time would take forever, and then I find out it's malware, spyware, or adware that is causing these issues. What is the best free anti malware software available? Because I use this laptop online for my college. Can anyone give a few suggestions on which free software is available for the time being? Help please!
