Anti-Virus Software Reviews

There's an old adage: if you fail to prepare, then prepare to fail. That's certainly true when it comes to computer viruses.

Anyone who has ever lost valuable computer data knows how heart-breaking it can be: those irreplacable photos of momentous occasions, that PhD research which took years to compile and write up, that screenplay that was destined for greatness, or maybe even those tax returns which you had spent weeks pain-stakingly assembling; all of these files have gone forever because they have been corrupted by malicious software.

We may not know why some peolple create malware (i.e. malicious software like computer viruses, trojan horses, worms, rootkits, spyware, and adware) which infiltrates our computer systems and wreaks havoc with our precious files. But we do know that there are ways to protect ourselves from malware so we have no excuse for failing to arm ourselves against it.

Two very important things you can do to prepare yourself against the inevitable onslaught are (i) installing high quality Anti-Virus Software on your computer and (ii) backing up your computer files regularly, either by transferring them to an external hard-drive or using an online storage system.

In a previous blog, we mentioned that we had added reviews of the best online storage products to Well, we are now pleased to announce that we have just added Anti-Virus Software reviews too, in response to emails from our readers.

We reviewed a large number of anti-virus software (both major and minor players in the market) according to the following criteria:
  • Detection and Removal Capability
  • Update Regularity
  • Features
  • Ease of Use
  • Performance
  • Customer Support
  • Value for Money
Our No1. Choice award went to Norton Anti-Virus 2010 due to its highly effective scanning capabilities, extraordinarily regular updates and full support package. In addition to all this, it is easy to use, has an attractive interface design and has been developed to run as seamlessly as possible alongside your other programs. Therefore, not only is it the most effective anti-virus program on the market, but it is also the most ergonomic.

So if you want to protect your computer system from viruses but don't know which Anti-Virus Software to buy, we think that our expert reviews of Anti-Virus Software is worth a read.
