I wonder what virus makers have in their mind when they make a computer virus. Perhaps they have nothing else better to do ? (LOL) 🙂 Computer viruses have certainly become an unavoidable inconvenience of modern computing technology. Whether we like it or not, we all have to deal with viruses in one way or another.
Because of this antivirus program has become a necessity. (Perhaps the antivirus companies are making viruses in order that they can make tons of money from their antivirus programs ? hehehe LOL not really:-)) Unless your computer is not accessing the internet an intranet or does not have any access to removal storage i.e floppy disk (LOL who uses these now a days), flash drives, CDs, DVDs, removal hard disk etc. your computer may not need to have an antivirus program. However what good is a computer if you can’t access the internet, a local network or removable storage?
Nowadays antivirus programs have evolved to a whole new level. They have to protect computer users from a lot of threat than ever before. Almost all of them have on-time real scanning, protection from phishing and spyware threats, browser hijacking among others. Because of this most antivirus program has become bloated and is a strain on system resources.
I used to test and personally change for several times my antivirus program. I wanted to find out what is the best one available out there. One of the best I have used is Avast antivirus home edition. I still highly recommend that you download free antivirus program of Avast for those of you who do not want to spend a dime on anti-virus software.
However take note that the Avast Antivirus home edition is only for personal use. If you are running a business you cannot use this antivirus, you will have to buy the professional edition of Avast Antivirus. You can download free antivirus program of Avast antivirus home edition here.
Avast antivirus may be outstanding but it does have its issues. A few users has complained about it being a hog to system resources and that it takes time to scan files although it is much more faster than other traditional anti-viruses. So if you want a much more outstanding antivirus that is definitely much cheaper check out VIPRE® Antivirus + Antispyware. Some of its features are as follows:
- High-performance threat protection with low impact on system resources
- Scans email for malware threats
- Cutting-edge Proactive Protection guards you 24/7
- Advanced anti-rootkit technologies
- Small, regular definition updates greatly reduce update downloading time
- VIPRE has three extra bonus tools: a history cleaner, a secure file eraser, and the PC Explorer for advanced users.
Unfortunately you can’t download free antivirus program of VIPRE® Antivirus + Antispyware, so for personal use I still recommend Avast antivirus. For businesses, this might be an antivirus worth looking into. Click here to check out the VIPRE® antivirus software.
