Antivirus Scanners

April 15th, 2009

Q:  What type of an anti-virus scanner should you put on your computer?

 A:   Whatever you choose, you need to have enough memory (RAM) in your computer to run these protections without dragging your computer down. 

 The average public might choose the scanning software packages made by the manufacturers called “McAfee” or “Norton”.  These are common products and often come with a new purchase (as a trial version).  However, it is recommended that you should have at the minimum 1 GB of memory for these programs to run well without slowing down your computer.  This is because the new software that is being released requires more memory to run then it ever has before.

Have something to add?
