AntiVirus suggestion

Postby Gustavo Woltmann » Mon Jan 09, 2017 1:46 am

I was using Kaspersky. But, it seems to me that it makes money computer too slow. So I want to switch. One of my friends suggest me to use SafeBytes. I have never used it before. Anyone has any idea about this anti-virus? I want to get some idea about it.

I never used it. kaspersky is still the number 1 anti virus I believe. Avast has a good free one which has been rated number 1 for free antivirus for a while.

It seems safebytes is a crap program - http://botcrawl.com/safebytes-virus-removal/ - and I would never install it if I were you. i would also tell your friend to get rid of it as quick as possible and switch to a well known program like Avast for free.

In my opinion, Kaspersky is the first choice of me. In fact, I'm using Kaspersky Internet Security and it's quite lightweight for me. Have you tried it yet?
