Finding/Buying the Best Antivirus Program
As PC users know, antivirus software is a must to be able to detect, fix, and prevent viruses and worms from entering the computer, so choosing well is important. Buying the best antivirus doesn't always mean buying the best, more comprehensive product. Users must evaluate how they use their computer and how their browsing habits and needs expose them to infections.
Users with fairly safe browsing habits might be able to get by with free antivirus products or light user-friendly software that provides effective protection without using too much of the computer's resources. Users with more extensive requirements (good firewalling, real-time e-mail and files scanning, etc...), might need to look into complete packages like Norton, one of the most famous anti-virus software available on the market.
As with all purchases, users should plan on spending some time comparing information about the different software and their options: antivirus Web sites, PC security forum, PC magazines sites, etc... are all great options.
Be sure to choose a Windows XP security software provider that you can rely on to help protect the computer from viruses and other security threats, and that can also keep your security software up to date.
