    The program regularly hung on me and so I couldn't carry on working. Therefore I have uninstalled the software.

    Unfortunately it did not work with my virus software at all, no idea what didn't properly fit together there.

    I wish I had known that before, it would have saved me some frustration!"

    The installation was far too awkward and complicated, there is still some room for improvement.

    An average-to-good program, which has not given me any problems so far.

    I'm not sure yet whether I'll carry on using the program.

    Julia
    19/09/2020

    I don't know whether I should keep the software on my computer or not. I just don't know my way around.

  • Jamie

    To be honest, I am torn apart by the software and its functions.

    I only had to call a staff member once, and found them friendly and professional.

    I still see adverts sometimes when I surf the Internet.

    Freya

    The software is a bit more resource-hungry when actively using it. But I can carry on working undisturbed.

    Rosa
    10/09/2020

    Sometimes dropped frames occur when playing games. I can't say whether this is due to the software.

  • Julian
    09/09/2020

    I consider the price-performance ratio only average.

    William

    The software is updated automatically , even if the updates don't come very often.

    Alexa

    There are definitely more user-friendly programs, but I am still happy.

  • Robert

    The available functions are sufficient in any case.

    Laurence
    05/09/2020

    It sometimes takes a rather long time for the program to run. Of course, this might also be due to my old computer.

    Jordan

    On the whole, the virus detection works reliably. Sometimes the software seems a little slow to me.

  • Haiko

    There is barely any system load and my computer performance remains almost identical.

    Steffen

Why do I need professional antivirus protection?

Viruses, Trojans, malware, worms, and other threats can access your home PC through the internet. Once on your computer, they can then cause a lot of damage. The security threats infect files on your computer, destroy essential components of the operating system, steal personal data and sensitive financial data, or lock users out. Every computer needs professional antivirus protection. This is just as important as having a doctor and taking preventive measures. Antivirus programs do more than just safely isolate threats and permanently delete them from the computer. Thanks to real-time protection, cyber threats are detected early on, before they can start wreaking havoc on your computer.

What is the difference between paid and free antivirus programs?

Free antivirus programs only offer basic protection. While free software protects users from most threats, it only provides limited functionality. Users sacrifice important additional functions such as an integrated firewall, a password manager, or child protection when using free software. Furthermore, many free antivirus programs do not offer web protection or privacy protection. Free software detects, isolates, and removes cyber threats, but has a few disadvantages compared to paid antivirus programs. In addition to a limited range of functions and the lack of extra security features, free programs put more of a strain on computers and often bother users with pesky advertising.

How do I find the right antivirus software provider?

Thanks to a large selection, you can find suitable software for any requirements and any platform. When searching for a professional antivirus program, users should consider the following aspects:

  • Which cyber threats does the software protect you from? A professional antivirus program protects its users not only from specific malware, but from all threats. The software needs reliably running real-time protection that starts up automatically in conjunction with the operating system, immediately detects threats, and renders them harmless. Automated, regular updates are particularly important to enable the program to detect and fight off even the latest threats.
  • Is the user’s privacy protected? Spending time online comes with many dangers and risks. To reduce these to the greatest extent possible, professional antivirus software should have integrated online protection. This prevents your personal data from falling into the wrong hands. Users can then enter their details for online banking or shopping without any concerns.

Which extended features does the antivirus software offer?

Aside from basic all-around protection from viruses and other threats, professional antivirus programs also offer other useful functions. They automatically examine emails and downloads as well as scanning all connected data carriers such as USB sticks or external hard drives. An integrated firewall is particularly important, as it considerably increases security.
