Antivirus software is essential, whether you’re an entrepreneur or simply a computer user. If you’re unsatisfied with your antivirus or you want to survey the market for something stronger, check out these top 3 antivirus softwares.
AVG Antivirus 2012
This antivirus automatically updates so you can rest easy knowing that your computer is being scanned around the clock with diligent LinkScanner technology. AVG is most respected for its efficient protection and repair. If you are a gamer, the antivirus has the capability to operate flawlessly mid-game. AVG also guards gaming profiles against potential hackers.
Of course, these gaming features are backed up by an advanced layered system. A traditional antivirus layer is layered on top of a AVG resident shield. AVG has been known to perform at a slower speed than other softwares, however. Additionally, AVG doesn’t provide telephone support, though the live chat support is decent.
Trend Micro Titanium Antivirus 2012
Trend Micro Titanium definitely has a reputation for excellent performance. It has consistently performed the highest detection rates, it’s approachable, and its installation can be completed within minutes. The interface is simple, streamlined, and minimalistic, appealing to a vast assortment of individuals. Like many newer antivirus softwares, Trend also uses cloud technology and provides real time updates. However, Trend does have its downsides. While general support is free, premium support is more costly than other brands.
Panda Antivirus 1.5
The free edition of Panda Antivirus 1.5 has long been hailed as the best free antivirus out there. This antivirus uses cloud technology, so it doesn’t bog down the speed or performance of your computer. While it has received numerous accolades, make sure to run a full system scan rather than a quick scan every week, as this antivirus has been known to sometimes produce an incomplete cleanup.
Even if you find that one of these softwares would work best for you, always keep your eyes peeled for updates or other softwares to increase your levels of security. Remember that you can often download free versions of your software before purchasing, so use the free editions as trials and then select your antivirus from there.
