Anti-Virus Protection Winners
The top antivirus protection software package in our review comparison tests was Computer Associates. When we started out with this test only one member of our office team was even familiar with Computer Associates. It was the third antivirus protection security software we tried on our workstations.
The package installed quickly and getting it set up and ready to run on our computers was a snap. Only one member of the team found the set-up falling behind the competition. Once installed the auto-update feature quickly grabbed the very latest protection and applied it without a restart - a big deal for those of us who hate waiting for slower workstations to reboot.
Winning features include lightening quick scan times and an efficient use of system resources. Our test machines are nearing retirement so to have a new antivirus system take so little of our processing power was a pleasant surprise. All incoming and outgoing emails are scanned, and all files in all states of use are scanned as well. When a virus is found you are provided a link to the CA Virus Information Centre for more information.
A nice extra feature is that CA Anti-Virus protects up to three PCs with a single paid subscription! No longer will you have to purchase multiple licenses to keep your home network safe and secure. For small business owners this is a great savings strategy. It is also smartly priced to begin with!
One fault in the antivirus protection offered by CA Anti-Virus is the requirement for Internet Explorer being installed. Being a design company we of course have every browser installed, but not every user does. If you are running your computer on Microsoft Windows XP or Vista, you have Internet Explorer already installed by default.
This software also works well with Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional and the Ultimate versions of the Microsoft operating system.
