Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Among the many operating systems around the most affected by virus is the Windows OS. Whether its phishing attacks, Trojans, worms or plain old viruses that have the total destruction of a system in mind, Windows is the most vulnerable to them. This has got nothing to do with the programming code or the framework of the system just that it is the most widely used operating system in the world. An antivirus program does not assure 100% protection against malware but it does reduce the frequency of infections and can in fact safeguard against failure of system because of overloading with malware programs. Thus, the biggest requirement today is to find the best antivirus suites. Each year new programs and newer editions come and therefore rankings change regularly. The top 5 antivirus 2011 were as seen on most ranking websites and trustworthy review sites as follows.

Norton Antivirus 2011

The age old fighter in the bad world of viruses, Norton is back with the 2011 version with which, Symantec aims to bring back lost customers who left because of the heavy requirements of Norton and its issue with uninstallation. This edition is faster, lighter and slimmer thus ideal for the modern day user. As always, it is sturdy with any kind of malware, removing the worst kind of infections completely in as few as two sweeps.

BitDefender Antivirus 2011

Unlike other competitors, the BitDefender sees itself in the top 5 antivirus 2011 listing only because of the ease of use that it portrays and the low taxing nature of its algorithms on the system. It does suffer from the issue of taxing really low configurations however, this is still better than the previously mentioned Norton Suite.

AVG Antivirus Suite 2011

AVG is another company that garnered rave reviews over the years as a dependable light program which is heavy in features and protection algorithms. Users over the year have opted to go the way of the AVG since it retails cheaper than other programs and comes fully loaded with virus databases requiring little updating before running on already infected systems.

Avast Antivirus 2011

Avast is known today as the leader of free antivirus software but few know that it even offers a paid version that comes with further more features and protection systems that make it that much more secure than the free version. Not only does it protect but also encrypt and backup files and folders.

Kaspersky Antivirus Suite 2011

The only program on this top 5 antivirus 2011 list that actually has been seeing the top of the charts consistently since its first edition. Kaspersky has always been known for three things, dependability, security and features. The latest edition provides all the trademark items with the addition of making the user interface simpler to use with a few hot keys included for extra measure. Kaspersky comes now in three editions that cater to all kinds of Windows user (including 32 bit users). The complete suite comes with backup solution, encryption and shredder systems plus total internet security. The internet version protects the computer from infection over the internet with a dual firewall configuration while scanning periodically the already present files on the system. Finally, the cheapest of all three suites, the basic antivirus 2011, offers basic protection more than sufficient for home based users.

As, one can see, the leader is Kaspersky because among the top 5 antivirus 2011, this name stands out in terms of features, affordability, customer satisfaction and reputation all taken together. Kaspersky internet Security 2012 has now been released and we must wonder if it will live up to its previous product.

I finally ditched Kaspersky after two years. I have a super fast PC that almost ground to a halt until I uninstalled Kaspersky. Now I have a combo of Bitdefender and SuperAntivius and the system runs normally.
