About Genuine Anti Virus Software
There are always pros and cons to Anti Virus software. Below is an honest overview of the major Anti Virus programs. Opinions expressed are personal opinions, but based on many years of extensive experience.
AVG Free Anti Virus was very popular. However; we tend to see numerous computers each week which have the free version of AVG Anti Virus installed, but which are still infected with viruses. The paid for version of AVG seems to be much better.
Kaspersky Anti Virus and Internet Security are excellent. We have used Kaspersky on our systems for numerous years without issues (it protects against, finds and kills viruses which other Anti Virus SW misses - and it does not slow computers down to the same extent as other Anti Virus SW).
Please Note; Barclays recommend Kaspersky and (at the time of writing - 2016) supply free Kaspersky licences at no cost to Barclays Online Banking customers.
McAfee Anti Virus is good, but also tends to slow the PC (but not as much as Norton). Additionally, we have recently seen many infected computers which have McAfee installed.
Microsoft - Windows Defender is free Anti Virus which is built into Microsoft Windows 8 and Windows 10. A&A Computers have found and removed viruses on many computers which relied on Windows Defender, or a combination of Windows Defender and low quality or free anti virus software. Under no circumstances should PCs, Laptops, Tablets or Servers rely solely on Microsoft Windows Defender if the computer is connected to a network or to the internet (many modern viruses are downloaded from the internet, they infect a computer and then search the network for other items which they can infect).
Microsoft - Security Essentials is free Anti Virus which is built into Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7. A&A Computers have found and removed viruses on many computers which relied on Windows Security Essentials, or a combination of Windows Security Essentials and poor or free anti virus software. Computers should never rely solely on Microsoft Windows Security Essentials if the computer is connected to a network or to the internet.
Norton Anti Virus is very good, but also tends to slow the PC (particularly Norton 360).
Virgin Anti Virus; On April 14th 2010, we removed 238 viruses from a PC which was using Virgin Media Security. We have since seen many more severely infected computers which were running Virgin Anti Virus - Security software.
