With all the anti virus software available in the market, it is a daunting task to pick the right one to suit your needs. But with our lives heavily dependent on the internet it is of vital importance to have a virus protector to safeguard the computers. These are some guidelines to follow when selecting one:
Choose software that is compatible with your OS. Check to see if your OS has a built in protection system and if so what type of protection it provides.
Identify what you expect from the anti virus: is to prevent a system failure or to protect confidential information stored in the computer? Depending on the purpose decide on the frequency of the upgrades that are required and the availability of such upgrades.
Most software provide a free edition that can be downloaded from the internet, if it meets your needs and is compatible with your system you can purchase it , if not you need to try out several until you find a suitable one.
