Top Computer Security Products

Aug 17, 2007
Computer owners beware! If you don't have a premier security computer product such as a virus protector, pop-up blocker, or anti-spyware program installed on your computer, you are basically leaving your PC open to danger. Let's look at some of the most popular programs available.

Virus protection software:
There is a rather large variety of companies that sell high-end virus protection software. For the oncoming year of 2007, there are several anti-virus programs that are making quite a splash as the best of the best. These programs include The Shield Pro, Bit Defender 9, Norton Antivirus, Kaspersky 5.0, McAfee Virusscan, Trend PC-cillin, and Panda Antivirus.

One of the most talked about of these programs is The Shield Pro. This anti-virus software also contains a firewall with its installation, as a bonus feature. A great program for computer users who are not very computer savvy, The Shield Pro is extremely easy to install and use. This program will perform scans of your computer once a week and update just as often - all on its own. So, if you forget to run a scan, you don't have to worry about it because the program will do it for you. The Shield Pro only takes up a small space on a hard drive, unlike other anti-virus programs. This means that it will not slow the system.

Anti-spyware software:
There are a huge variety of anti-apyware programs on the market that can destroy spyware on your computer. Popular anti-spyware programs include Webroot Spy Sweeper, SpyBlaster, and Windows Defender. These programs can be bought in computer and electronics stores. Internet cable or DSL service providers often provide you with an anti-spyware program if you use their services. As newer versions of anti-spyware programs become available, you will be able to download them or receive them via postal mail or email.

Firewalls:
Although most anti-virus software programs provide firewalls in their packages, some do not. You can purchase high-quality firewalls such as ZoneAlarm Pro, which will stop hackers from getting into your computer system. A firewall provides a barrier between your computer and the outside world - which can oftentimes be a dangerous place.

Security kits:
Built-in padlock security tags are also quickly becoming popular in the computer world. These uniquely designed tags allow you to lock up your computer's hard drive with a combination lock, so that no one can physically steal your hard drive or any other drives or cards you have installed in your system. This is just an example of how far security is coming in the computer world!

With all of these top security products, it is important to remember that they only work if you take the time to maintain and update them as necessary. For example, if you don't update your anti-virus software or your anti-spyware programs frequently as updates are available, you will not be one hundred percent protected. The safety and security of your computer is truly in your own hands!
