The best antivirus software? This question really boils down to one’s preference on the software itself. In my view, there really is no difference which antivirus is the best since no matter how feature rich the software is, if the virus signature list is not updated, your system will be hit by the virus that the antivirus does not recognize. I prefer a simple antivirus software that does not load too many unusable modules. Sure, they may be useful in some cases but I believe that they should all be disabled first and let the user manually enable module after module when he wants to.
If you are totally clueless on where to start, Star Reviews is a good place to check out. It offers reviews on some of the well known antivirus software makers including ratings on the overall product, ease of use and even customer service (yes customer service is equally important). There are lots of antivirus softwares out there, and even I cannot remember all of them (even new ones that come out). You can check Star Reviews without going to each antivirus software maker’s site to compare them from one another. You can do it all in just one site! Check it out!
