So, you know you need an antivirus, but which one do you choose?

Ask the following questions before deciding what is best for you.
Will My Antivirus Cover....?
✓ Anti-spyware software and does it include a firewall?
✓ Regular updates to keep me up-to-date with the latest security threats?
✓ Parental controls to keep the whole family safe?
✓ Is it a premium service provider,
i.e. it will be updated as soon as the latest threats are discovered?
✓ Does it cover just one computer or can I install the same protection on
two or more computers in my home?
