Anti-Virus Apps

Though many say that “the best anti-virus is common sense,” that can’t always protect from an accidental late night popup click or other similar circumstances. Mistakes happen. For those moments, the peace of mind that anti-virus software such as Avast or Avira can provide by responding quickly to any potential virus, trojan, or other malicious software may very well be worth it, especially to those that are not the most tech literate in your life. This page can help you make an informed decision about which anti-virus software to try.
