I’ve been liking BitDefender at home for virus protection. BitDefender doesn’t use as many computer resources as some of the other major packages, and provides good protection. It’s been a solid performer for me.
But there’s a new kid on the block, and it’s great. If you’re open to purchasing software for protecting your computer, consider Sunbelt Software‘s VIPRE™. Combining antivirus and antispyware in one package, VIPRE provides real-time protection and uses relatively little of your computer’s precious CPU and memory.
I’ve been running VIPRE for a few weeks, and not only has it found bugs other vendors have missed, my computer is running faster and cooler than ever.
It gets better. Unlike any other vendor I’m aware of, Sunbelt offers an unlimited home license for $49.95 a year…for as many Windows-based home computers as you want. They have one and two PC licenses, but if you have three or more PCs, this is an outstanding deal.
But wait, there’s more! VIPRE isn’t just antivirus software. It incorporates Sunbelt’s CounterSpy technology to protect you from spyware.
If you like to follow security blogs, Sunbelt Blog is often a good read.
