  • Ways to choose an Antivirus for a computer

To determine the suitable antivirus, you should

  1. Consider the operating system and whether you intend to downgrade or upgrade in future
  2. Analyze how you use the computer. Are you a gamer, a heavy surfer or do you have an old computer?

In gaming, for instance, you require an antivirus that notices when a game is being played and prevents unnecessary activities. Somebody who has an old computer should be concerned about the system effect on performance. Old computers are likely to perform poorly even when surfing safe websites. The person should also be concerned about getting an antivirus that can support an old operating system.

  1. Look at main testing and certification companies to know how various antivirus protection tools perform. The companies include NSS Labs, AV-Test, VB100%, ICSA Labs, Checkmark, and AV-Comparatives.
  2. When analyzing certification, you should also check their test results. Choose one that consistently provides high protection and proactive protection scores.
  3. Narrow your choices to two or three options and then test each of them.
