Norton-Norton Antivirus 2009 is very easy to use. It comes with a default configuration that is sufficient to protect most home computer systems. It integrates with the start bar with an icon that is large and easy to spot. The icon also includes a way to tell if your system is protected or needs intervention from the user.The new Rapid Pulse feature allows Norton Antivirus to update every 5 to 15 minutes.Norton Antivirus 2009 is a good product for keeping your computer safe from viruses, but is not as effective as it should be against spyware.

AVG-Though AVG Antivirus is mostly a hands-off program, there may be some instances when you may need to configure some advanced options. For 99% of the population though, the default options will be more than sufficient.AVG Antivirus is one of the most complete programs we have found to date. It includes many new options to make it one of the most effective virus scanners on the market.AVG Checks for updates every 4 hours by default.Version 8 of AVG Antivirus is a definite improvement over version 7.5. The scanning features have been sped up and the new interface is a clean and modern take on a time-tested product.

Mcafee-McAfee is an industry leader in computer protection and VirusScan is their #1 defense against viruses. This software comes with a ScriptStopper to prevent viruses from propagating from one computer to another via email, and WormStopper.Some downsides to the program are that it doesn't provide instant message protection, P2P/file sharing protection or registry startup protection. Check out the Gold product if you're looking for these features.McAfee is a name brand product that does an excellent job at detecting and removing viruses. Their update process can be somewhat tedious and their support department needs to answer their emails in a more timely manner.

Kaspersky-Kaspersky Labs has always been known for its ability to effectively detect and remove viruses as well as or better than any software program on the market. Like BitDefender, Kaspersky was able to remove over 98% of all viruses it encountered in the most recent objective tests of Kaspersky is excellent at detecting viruses and malware, it could use some work in the detection of spyware. Independent tests by showed that Kaspersky allowed 8% of adware/spyware to go undetected.Kaspersky's feature set is one of its strongest assets.

Ad Aware-it is a good solution for detecting spyware.One unique addition to Ad-Aware Professional is a built-in popup blocker.Ad-Aware does a pretty good job of detecting spyware or annoying adware. The program provides some real-time protection (removing spyware as it installs) and is better than average at finding hidden components. It is especially useful for IT or technical users. On the downside, it is more expensive than most other options, including our higher-ranked products and lacks some of the features you can get with said products. Also, the technical support was less than spectacular. You would be better off with a program that has the best of both worlds.

Zonealarm-ZoneAlarm Firewall has been the standard for personal firewall products since early this decade. They continued this rich tradition and made it even better with ZoneAlarm Internet Security 2009. Their configuration utility is easy to use and has a learning feature that takes the guess work out of configuring your firewall.ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite has an easy and intuitive installer that walks you through everything from installing the program to the initial configuration.ZoneAlarm Internet Security 2009 is one of the most well-rounded and effective security suites on the market. Using the award winning ZoneAlarm firewall and including the Kaspersky virus scanning engine, great parental control features and antispyware features that are among the best in the industry, ZoneAlarm hits an all time high.

The antivirus software that i think dominates it all is mcafee. Mcafee is easy and intuitive. It provides an easy interface, the install is quick. The virus protection is great and voted top best in its class. Lastly it is #1 against viruses and protecting your computer.
