Protection of your computer is very important especially if you go online a lot. You don’t know what you could be downloading to your computer that could cause havoc to your system. So to protect yourself, you need to install a software called anti-virus.
There are a lot of antivirus software out there in the internet. Some can be downloaded for free while some you have to buy them. Some can detect only a handful of viruses while some flags every file you have as a virus or a potentially unsafe file. Some are actually viruses themselves disguised as an antivirus.
I’m sure you have heard the names, Norton antivirus, McAfee antivirus, Panda antivirus, nod32 antivirus, trend micro antivirus, avg antivirus, avast antivirus, kaspersky antivirus, bitdefender antivirus and all other softwares are there. (there are a lot). Some are free like AVG and Avast. There are others that you need to pay for a yearly subscription for their virus definition updates. Some are even included when you buy your computer such as Norton or McAfee.
There’s a lot of things to consider when choosing the best antivirus software. You need to take into consideration your computer’s processing power (some are too resource heavy for old computers), updates of their virus definitions (at least daily but better if they update many times a day), the reviews done on them (testimonials from other users and sites that reviews antivirus), and other additional features that they have such as heuristic scanning, scanning the sites you browse, quick scans and full scans and many more.
Personally, if you would ask me, my answer would be Kaspersky Antivirus is the best antivirus hands down! When I discovered it while searching for some antivirus programs, I have never changed my antivirus software ever again.
