    A friend of mine has just bought an Acer Aspire One notebook I don't know anything about them but he says it runs on Vodafone 3g,he has only just started to use it and has asked me if he would need anti virus for it,he says he gets a prompt every time it switches it on asking if he would like to start a 30 day trial of Vodafone virus protection,could anyone tell me if this would be advisable as obviously he would have to purchase after the trial if he still wanted to use it and it might be a pain to remove,the operating system is WINDOWS 7 ,if somebody with some knowledge could advise what Anti virus he should use it would be appreciated,if for example Microsoft security essentials is recommended,what would he need to do to download this,does he need a code to get Microsoft to allow him to have the Microsoft security essentials for free,or when he downloads from the Microsoft site will it be automatic as its a genuine Microsoft O.S that he is using,sorry if this is a bit rambling but I'm a relative newbie and my mates only had his notebook for a few days
