Antivirus Protection

Norton Anti Virus Protection

Norton’s Antivirus Protection is a well established (founded 1982) antivirus program, however in recent years it has fallen. The user interface is fairly easy to use but on the other hand Norton Security lacks optimal antivirus and malware protection.

Robust password manager

Covers more devices than most competitors


No parental controls

Meaningful performance hit during scans

McAfee Antivirus Protection

McAfee (founded 1987) does still hold a major share of the antivirus marketplace each year but again has dramatically fallen in recent years and is very much so still relying on its well-branded name. Virus protection through to even customer service has very much so gone downhill. Now it is very basic. On older PCs McAfee can still be quite effective but on newer PCs like Macs and other devices which use Ios the firewall is not fully protected.

Avast Antivirus Protection

Avast is a familiar name in the antivirus marketplace and it was again one of the best to use in recent years including offers back in 2001 which included a free package. Avast includes useful features including good virus detection and also a 24 hour phone support which is a major benefit. Avast Pro Antivirus has few problems detecting malware and making decisions about whether incoming traffic is actually a virus or not. It extends its protection to your home network, prevents hackers from entering your browser and finds out-of-date applications that make your PC vulnerable.

AVG Antivirus Protection

AVG Antivirus is one of the most popular antivirus programs on the market. As long as your subscription has not run out, you’ll have the latest version of their software. AVG is easily one of the best antivirus programmes on the market. It includes better protection against even the newest malware; it includes automatic push updates and is completely compatible with windows 10. Furthermore it is very simple to use so you do not need a wide knowledge of any I.T and again has very good customer support. Birmingham Computer Repairs would definitely advice installing AVG.
