What antivirus do you use, i am currently using Kaspersky personal 5 but it is due to expire, i have been looking at others and the one which keeps appearing as the best there is at the moment is The Shield pro, only £18.00, the reason i am looking to move away from Kaspersky is it slows my pc to a snails pace, something that the Shield pro does not according to the reviews. feel free to let me know about other antivirus programms.
The Shield Pro uses the Hauri ViRobot AV engine and their website proudly claims VirusBulletin 100% status. They fail to mention that they've only ever submitted for trial on 8 of 40 opportunities and they failed 7 of those 8. Easily one of the lowest pass rates of any product listed and significantly worse than any of the free options avast click here , AVG click here or antivir click here . On top of that The Shield AntiVirus 2005™ is not ICSA labs rated. So IMHO this particular bit of software is very much one to avoid. The free options are much much better. For a firewall try Kerio click here or ZoneAlarm click here also free and better than a lot of off the shelf equivalents.
