    After extensively researching all anti-virus products I can say the best anti-virus is Kaspersky, though NOD32 is better for computer experts. Kaspersky is the best all-round anti-virus program. NOD32 runs faster and has less software conflicts but as a consequence the user interface is difficult to use.

    The most popular free anti-virus programs (AVG and Avast) have poor detection rates (82.82%, 87.46% respectively). Norton is notoriously bloated and takes forever to perform full systems scans.

    It has been proven ESET NOD32 and Kaspersky are better than the best sellers Norton and McAfee (see the consumersearch source for reviews of the top anti-virus products). See recent tests for yourself at av-comparatives.org.

    Trend Micro Antivirus is a viable alternative if you’re having a lot of trouble with software conflicts. Trend Micro rounds out the top three.

    Having no computer at all. With that being said, it’s not only the software but the users habits.

    When considering an Anti-Virus solution:

    There are three basic, essential steps that should be taken to ensure your PC is kept threat-free.

    Firstly, be sensible when opening attachments or following email instructions from apparently reputable sites.

    Secondly, make sure you are using the latest service pack of Windows as Microsoft is continually closing loopholes to tighten up security.

    Finally, there’s a range of low cost tools such as firewalls, anti virus, spam blockers and spyware killers available. Like everything else they vary in quality and you tend to get what you pay for so always do.

    As an authorized reseller of AVG I’m partial to them, others will say Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky. I would recommend doing your research, and if the manufactures allow do a 15-30 day trial of this software. My personal chocie is AVG 7.5 Internet Security Suite with all the bells and whistles.

    With a paid subscription from AVG, technical support is excellent if you should ever require it, and it’s at no cost to you.

    McAfee and Norton can’t say that, need assistance from them, have your credit card ready, each incident (contact) either by e-mail or telephone starts at $29.95, they neglect to inform you that when you purchase your subscription. When I renew my subscription with AVG I get a preferred customer discount of 50%. NICE TOUCH! Does your anti-virus company offer you a discount when you renew? All AVG customers receive the 50% customer loyalty discount.

    The Internet is a jungle of malicious garbage, ranging from but not limited to Ad Ware, Malware, Trojan Horses, Phishing, Key loggers and Zero Day and a whole new world of SCAM artists. If you are not using any anti-virus protection that’s your choice. Did you know you can get a virus from a CD, DVD or Floppy Disk just by inserting it in your computer? When you place a media inside your computer, you should go to the My Computer icon located on your desktop, left mouse double click, locate the drive you inserted your media in, hi-lite, right mouse click, select SCAN with your anti-virus solution.
