Choosing Anti-Virus Software

There are a number of companies that provide software solutions to virus, Trojan, and internet worm attacks. It can be really confusing when you compare three different software packages from five different companies trying to find the one that is right for you. With that in mind, there are several very important things that you need to consider when choosing antivirus software:

1) How often/fast are the virus definitions updated. You want the answer to be "As soon as a new threat is found".

2) Are the virus definitions updated automatically by the software? You want the answer to be "YES".

3) Can you configure the software to check for updates every time you go online? You want the answer to be "YES".

4) Is the software "smart" so that it can find viruses it doesn't even know about yet? You want the answer to be "YES".

5) Can it scan incoming and outgoing email automatically? You want the answer to be "YES".

6) Can you configure it once to perform automatic scans of your entire computer on a regular schedule? You want the answer to be "YES".

7) Does it provide a way to 'clean out' any viruses etc. that are found? You want the answer to be "YES".

8) Are upgrades to the software package performed automatically, regularly, and at no cost? You want the answer to be "YES".

There are a few major players in the field that you should know about in order to make an informed decision about which antivirus software solution to buy and use. There are Norton Antivirus, Trend Mico Antivirus, and McAfee Antivirus. Kaspersky and AVG Antivirus are also very good choices. All of the top antivirus solutions will provide each of the eight points above (and more).
