Best Antivirus Of 2011
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The debate still rages on as to which antivirus should take the mantle for the most coveted title of the year, the best antivirus of 2011. Each review site, each testing site has different views and not a single site can actually come to any distinct conclusion that would satisfy all the antivirus community. Hence, here is my take on this issue.

Although, Norton has stepped up to the playing field this year with its slimmer and easier to use version, there is still a lot to be desired in terms of compatibility with slower machines and Windows XP. BitDefender may be a user favorite but it lacks the reputation and the scores that brands posses. AVG is cheap yet not as effective as others. Avast is not obviously the best antivirus of 2011 because its concentration still lies in the free Avast antivirus versions just as with the Panda programs.

In my honest opinion as an avid computer user and a person really high on getting the best protection for my workstation, I prefer Kaspersky products simply because they are cheap stand alone programs that are high on protective features and easy on usability. The Internet Security suite 2011 and the True Security suite 2011 both are right for the average home user and even small businesses. Together along with the PURE total security the set of three Kaspersky suites are the best antivirus of 2011.

Not only is the detection rate high but it is also easy to navigate. Tests show that it scores really high in detecting viruses and malware with a high score in removing them as well as disabling them. The three suites all come with the same engine that scans and then removes viruses. While the internet security pack comes with extra online protection measures, the PURE package comes with extra software bundled into the same framework.

My personal best antivirus of 2011, Kaspersky does not take that much out of a system as they run perfectly well even on low configuration XP systems. Moreover, the single navigation screen shows all requisite buttons cramped into five tabs that give everything a user may require. Kaspersky even offers uninterrupted service and support to users in case of emergencies that they can avail either through the mail, phone, chat or direct correspondence. The single most important reason why it ranks as my personal best antivirus of 2011 is its three free licenses at the price of one for a year's subscription that is significantly cheaper than any other company. Make sure to find a complete review of Kaspersky 2012 software now that it has been released to the public.
