Antivirus News and Trends

Find the latest antivirus news and product comparisons

Choosing an antivirus software is an extremely important decision. Most people aren't aware of any antivirus beyond the big dogs: McAfee and Norton. The fact of the matter is that the virus protection landscape is constantly changing, and the most well-known antivirus software providers aren't necessarily the best.

  1. Study reviews of the latest crop of anti virus protection on consumer research sites.
  2. Visit popular weblogs for up to date antivirus news and trends.
  3. Read online newsletters for current antivirus reviews, news and forums.
