The latest copy of Computer Shopper Magazine (Feb 12) has run another test on Antivirus suites. They have given the top 5 stars to Kaspersky Internet Security 2012, Bit Defender 2012 and F-Secure 2012. Admittedly, Bit Defender came out as their Best Buy but that was largely on price as well as its performance.
I have been recommending and using Kaspersky now for quite a few years now and have installed it on a very large number of customers’ computers. I regularly have Trojans carried into my computer by spam emails, especially the ones that pretend to come from banks. Kaspersky always stops them dead!
It’s worth shopping around for your Internet Security program. The Computer Shopper magazine suggest £23 for a 3 user Kaspersky. On Kaspersky’s website today it is £59.99. Look at Amazon and you may find some bizarre pricing. For the 3 user £19.49, 1 user £23.41 and for a 3 user Booster Edition (this has some additional software) £17.99. Note that all of those prices are for the Internet Security 2012 suite.
