I have been using anti-virals since 1987. Professionally, I got hit by a legendary Jerusalem B virus that incapacitated thousands of PC’s on Wall Street in New York City in 1990. So for 20 years as a Supervisor of Local Area Networks for 5 of the biggest financial companies in the world, I managed the rollout of anti-virals on 5,000 to 10,000 PC’s in the Manhattan Campus and on thousands of computers in 100+ countries all over the world. So I know too much about anti-virals probably.
Is There An Affordable Anti-Viral Right Now?
Short Answer = NO. I use either Norton or McAfee on all my machines and they aint cheap. But this one in particular is undesirable to me… Norton 360. I’ve had to uninstall it twice from the same machine so far because it automatically installs an unwanted toolbar. That toolbar reduced my work area on the screen and I had to go to the FireFox Tools / Addons to disable it and get rid of it. So I am writing support and I will update this post if I get the other features I don’t need and don’t want supressed. My recommendation to my customers: Don’t Buy Norton 360…. unless you want all kinds of features that I would not trust… like PC Tuneups and PC backups. I take care of those myself. Thank You.
