Your Questions About Virus Protection

Posted by softwareguru on April 30, 2014

Paul asks…

What do you think is the best Virus Protection on the market?

Not only that, I need Virus Protection, anti spy, and firewall. I’ve been using the suite that is included with ATT Yahoo DSL but I need a different one because I purchased a new computer with Vista and they dont support Vista (and won’t until at least August). Preinstalled on my computer I have a free trial of Norton but I was not happy with them on my last computer because I felt they take up too much memory. Give me some suggestions and why. I need the works but they don’t have to be from the same provider. I was leaning toward computer associates but tell me what you think.

softwareguru answers:

Vista compatibility with many programs right now. Microsoft One-care used to be pretty bad but recently it has improved a lot. It is pretty much guarenteed to be vista compatible.

If you want to go the free route My suggestions are:
Avast OR AVG
Windows Firewall OR ZoneAlarm
*Spybot AND *Ad-Aware AND *Windows Defender (*=None of these three with real-time protection on)
