McAfee Internet Security 2015

McAfee Internet Security Software works efficiently behind the scenes and notifies you only in emergencies. Another positive aspect to mention is the parental controls as well as the redesigned user interface.

7. F-Secure Internet Security 2015

The Internet Security software does its job satisfactorily. The scanning time could be better however. It could also be made more user friendly but if that doesn’t bother you, then you will get a good internet security program which will protect you from potential threats.

ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

The Software from ZoneAlarm unfortunately leaves a little more to be desired from the user interface and usability. Because of this, it is not recommended for beginners. The effective firewall is worth mentioning, however this can also be acquired separately.

Which antivirus software is recommended?

It is impossible to answer this question solely by a score or stating a particular program. There are many Antivirus programs on the market today and each one has their pros and cons and different features. Many want their PC to be 100% protected from viruses and trojans and would therefore sacrifice computer speed. Others look for a streamlined software which doesn’t use up a lot of resources, so that their PC’s speed isn’t compromised by the Antivirus scanner.

What threats lurk on the Internet?
