There all junk! Switch your operating system over to Linux, then there is no need for any anti virus. :wink:

Can you use Microsoft Word and Quickbooks with Linux?

OpenOffice or Libre Office is the Linux equivalent to MS Office. Adequate for 95 percent of what MS Office is used for.

Quickbooks is a bigger problem. The closest thing is GnuCash, which is unlikely to meet the needs of a business.

I think that's one reason Bill Gates is a zillionaire- he was the first to come up with a real system, and by the time someone else came up with an improvement, many of us were so invested in Microsoft that we couldn't afford to make a change. I've got 15 years of Word files and 15 years of bookkeeping on Quickbooks, and I can't just switch to something else.

Most folks agree that the Apple computer system is superior to Microsoft, and has been for many years, but the business world continues to slog along with Microsoft, because that's what we started with, it works well enough for our purposes, and changing would be a tremendous undertaking.

Do you have a recommendation as to which . I don't need much for bells and whistles?

Something that resembles Word and Exel would do for extras.

Yep. My main computer at home uses Ubuntu and it breezes through everything on a computer that is about 8 years old. The OS is free and the updates are free. Currently using the 12.04 version and it has all the features that Microsoft charges hundreds of dollars for.
