Next to a complete hard drive crash, just about the worst thing that can happen to your computer is when it’s infected. Whether it’s spyware, malware, worms, horses, pigs (pigs?), it doesn’t matter. When some super annoying virus takes hold of your computer, it becomes a complete nightmare.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had some computer (either mine or my wife’s) infected. Yes I’ve used 19 million different antivirus programs over the years. For the most part they’re fairly similar. But they eat up a ton of memory, slow my machine down, and conflict with a lot of other programs. So yeah, there’ve been a load of times I had nothing protecting my machine.
There’s one program, however, that I actually do prefer over the others. And I’m glad to see I’m not the only one. If you haven’t tried Webroot yet, you should give it a shot. It definitely had the least slowdown effect of all anti-virus programs I’ve ever used on my computers. Plus the Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2013 program protects up to 5 of your devices! Yep, that even includes your smartphone.
There’s nothing like that pit in your stomach when your browser keeps spewing out popup after popup, as your pages all redirect to some awful, evil online store. It always reminds me of that scene in Jurassic Park where Newman’s hacked into the computers and you say his face, as his finger waves from side to side and he says, “Ah ah ah. you didn’t say the magic word.”
Nobody wants to think about anti-virus programs until they’re hit with a virus. But trust me, it’s 1,000 times better to stop it before it happens, than to deal with it aftwerwards. You really don’t want to have all your LOLCatz infected now, do you?
