Antivirus Softwares And Comparison

Made By V.Ganesh Raj XI-C

What Are Antivirus Softwares ?


Antivirus or anti-virus software is a software used to prevent, detect and remove malware (of all descriptions), such as: computer viruses, adware, backdoors, malicious BHOs, dialers, fraudtools, hijackers, keyloggers, malicious LSPs, rootkits, spyware, trojan horses and worms.

Kaspersky Internet Security 2012




 

Kaspersky’s updated dashboard is equally user friendly and looks as though it was designed with touch screens in mind. The top portion is dominated by a status window that lets you know if there are any pressing matters that require your attention, and below that sits a scrollable row of oversize icons. Kaspersky displays four at a time, or you can press the up arrow to stretch the section up over the status window. The changes in KIS go beyond the cosmetic. Kaspersky injected the scan engine with a much-needed dose of nitrous oxide, but it might be a little too fast. Several suspicious files went undetected as downloaded them to the desktop, though Kaspersky sprang into action when we tried to execute them. Overall Rating - 8.5 Cost - $59.95 or Rs. 3242.09

Bitdefender Internet Security 2012


 

Bitdefender is overflowing with features. All the essentials are there— antivirus, antispyware, antispam, firewall—and so are loads of extras like identity-theft protection, parental controls, a rescue mode that reboots your PC in a trusted environment, social network scanning, a virtualized browser, and the list goes on. To top it off, the new menu layout is both easy to navigate and customizable. Bitdefender clearly understands what we we want from a security suite. Overall Rating - 9.2 Cost - $49.95 or Rs.2701.29

Norton Internet Security 2012






 

The new is the ability to remotely manage multiple Norton subscriptions from the web, the ability to scan your Facebook wall for malicious links, and a Reputation scan for determining a file’s trustworthiness. Norton added 16 seconds to our system’s startup time, tying for last place. If you want, you can disable or delay the start of programs through Norton’s new Startup Manager. It’s similar to the one built into Windows, but far more robust and easier to use, and it reports resource usage (displayed as Low, Medium, or High). As before, Norton skips scanning unaltered files after the first pass-through, so an initial eight-minute scan was reduced to a little more than two and a half minutes. In terms of protection, Norton continues to impress, both during internal tests and also those conducted by independent testing labs. Symantec tells us it’s added 120 new rules to Norton’s Sonar module, which is now better at detecting not only non-process threats like those hiding in DLL files, but also fake AV programs. Overall Rating - 9.0 Cost - $49.99 or 2703.45

Norton Internet Security 2012

Panda Internet Security 2012




 

Panda’s scan engine isn’t fast, but it’s effective, at least in ravaging real-time threats. More often than not, Panda prevented malicious websites from loading, and on the rare occasions it didn’t, the ondemand scanner obliterated suspicious downloads before they could touch the desktop. It wasn’t quite as effective in clearing up existing infections, leaving traces of neutralized malware behind. One way Panda improved over last year’s version is in scaling back the number of pop-ups. They’re not completely gone, but Panda’s firewall no longer freaks out whenever it detects activity on your network. Panda’s slow-loading menu feels heavy. We like Panda overall, but its quirks are tough to bear. Overall Rating - 7.5 Cost – Free (Downloadable)

Panda Internet Security 2012

AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2012




  

AVG hunts down viruses, spyware, Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs), rootkits, email-borne threats, suspicious registry entries, boot sector viruses on removable media, and tracking cookies. AVG proved especially skillful at stopping unknown threats dead in their tracks. AVG is at the top of its class in disabling active malware infections, it detects and disables all malicious software, and removes all traces of malware two-thirds of the time. If you’re looking for solid, fast PC protection, look no further than AVG. Overall Rating - 8.5 Cost – Free (Downloadable)

AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2012

Avast Free Antivirus 6






Avast provides real-time protection against an assortment of malware, not just viruses, through eight configurable so-called ―shields‖ you can fine-tune to your specific setup. Heavy file sharers will want to spend some time polishing the P2P Shield, for example, and there are other shields for instant messaging, email, network activity, and more. Be careful not to let the sheer number of shields lull you into a false sense of super-security. They weren’t strong enough to prevent every piece of malware from penetrating our test bed, though Avast did an above-average job minimizing the damage from unknown threats. One aspect of Avast we really like is that you can choose to have Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) load in a sandboxed environment. But where Avast shines is in blocking most bad downloads from reaching the desktop in the first place. In our tests, Avast performed at least as well as some of the full-blown security suites, and in some cases did a better job screening websites.
