Ever wonder what the best antivirus program is?  Would you be surprised to know that there are over 100 companies that offer computer virus protection solutions?  The number of choices are simply overwhelming.  Some require you to pay, some are free.  Some offer just virus protection, others offer many other internet security features like a firewall, email filtering, ad blocking, internet search screening.  How do you find the best antivirus program?  Its an important decision and can significantly affect you, your computer and your data.

Once you make the decision, you still have a lot of work to do like uninstalling your previous antivirus software, installing the new software and then configuring the features it has.  Most antivirus programs do not come with all of their features enabled and therefore do not offer the greatest level of protection until the user sets them up.  For example, most do not have their scanning functionality turned on, they only offer whats called ‘real time’ protection.  This is kinda like locking your front door on your house but never looking around to see if a bad guy may have gotten in through say a window or the back door.  Its good protection, but its not all that great.  With all the bad guys wanting to infect your computer at every turn, its simply not acceptable.
