Anti Virus Protection
If you use your computer to go online, you need antivirus protection. It doesn’t matter
whether you only check emails once in a while, or just check the BBC news, if you go online you need to protect your data and your computer.
So, you know you need an antivirus, but which one do you choose?
Whilst it’s tempting to go for a free version, there are solid reasons to opt to pay for a security product that will keep your computer better protected.
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?
✓ My mobile devices as well, like my phone?
✓ Will it clash with systems already in place on my computer?
