What features should you look for in AntiVirus Software

Published by in General · 30/8/2012 09:14:03

If you are looking for an antivirus program today then you will probably be quite surprised at just how many of them are on the market.

All of the major security vendors, such as Panda, Kasperky, ESET, Trend Micro, , and others, have an antivirus program out there.

But which one should you buy?

It can be a daunting task having to choose and each of us are different. It may be that you are a novice computer user looking for something easy to understand, or you may be an expert who wants the ability to tweak just about every setting there is.

Either way, your choice of antivirus program is probably going to come down to the benefits that it offers you as a user.

So what sort of benefits do antivirus programs offer?

The main benefits that you need to be looking out for are -

   * Easy installation
   * Simple to use interface
   * Real time updates
   * Real time scanning
   * Gaming mode
   * Great customer support

Of course there are dozens of other features available that will appeal to different types of people but I feel that those above are the main ones.

You will need to know how any given antivirus program fairs with the above criteria and to do that you will either need to check out some of the free trials that are available or read reviews.
