I normally read many feedbacks from other customers. I also check the reviews from many websites and read their feedbacks and recommendations. I don't buy so expensive anti virus software and I believe that they are not so much worth the price. But the best is to update the virus definition of the software to keep it very responsive and aware of the new viruses.

I choose which antivirus software that I use based on reviews from people that I know and also from the internet. I figure that I get the best information by reading lots of different reviews. In addition to that, I always have at least two different anti-virus software programs and one that will check for spyware when I am checking my computer. I've come to learn over time that no one anti-virus is able to scan for everything.
