Choosing security software for my desktop was a confusing story for me. Being a branded user of HP I got a copy of Norton Antivirus, and that created a problem for me. In general today each and every security software bundled with antivirus + antispyware and that’s why it hogs good amount of memory, so as my security software did.
So, I had two option either change my security software or increase RAM. In this regard both need extra investment except free one. So, what should I do?
- Stick to the same security software which I have pre-installed,
- Upgrade RAM,
- Look for some security software that is robust, cost-effective and hogs less memory,
- Go to some free one.
It’s up to you which option you choose. But, tweaking the software and OS gave me some bit of relaxation. Now, if you ask me a question that, which option I would choose from the above if extra investment permits my pocket— I would have answered, “Look for a security software that is robust, cost-effective and hogs less memory“. Why? because
- First of all, I don’t have to upgrade my RAM
- Secondly, robust and cost-effective that I needed to handle today’s malicious attacks
So, keeping the view to the selected option of robust, cost-effective and hogs less memory I searched with phrase “high-performance security software doesn’t slow down PC” and got across a security software from Sunbelt Software, VIPRE an Antivirus Software. When I visited the site, the very first line of this software description depicts as,
VIPRE Antivirus + Antispyware is high-performance security software that doesn’t slow down your PC like older, traditional antivirus products.
The claim of high-performance security software without slowing down PC is not a joke and that need to look after. So, downloading the 15 days free trial of the product can give vivid insight.
Now, this is not a directive approach to use the above security software rather a finding, based on my preference and that could be your option also.
At last, I will again suggest—look for a security software that is robust, cost-effective and hogs less memory. Rest is your option.
What is your opinion?
