These programs are an important part of computers today. Unfortunately, many people are not told about some key issues. The biggest one is, that you can not have two or more anti-virus programs in your computer at the same time.

There is much more that needs to be done to resolve this. There are several other issues as well. Please contact me, if you have any questions.
It is my suggestion that you go with a free version such as Avast or Avira. I like the free versions, because we do not need the entire paid for versions of all anti-virus programs, as they tend to slow down your computer.

Mac OS X & Linux (all versions)
I still use anti-virus programs here, simply because I do not want anything that comes into my computer to be passed onto to my friends and family. Recently, I use Sophos, but at present I am using Avast.
