Using Free Antivirus Software Can Cost You Money
Experts agree that today’s biggest online threats come in forms that free antivirus software (like the free software offered by AVG®, avast!® and Avira®) doesn’t stop.
Threats such as rootkits, bots, keyloggers, hackers, phishing scams, and infected web sites breeze right past most free antivirus software.
These threats can pose an even bigger danger than viruses, not only to your computer and files, but to your bank account as well. They can lead to a hard drive crash, system failure, or worse, identity theft. And that’s when using free antivirus software can get really expensive.
Plus, free antivirus software is generally reactive. That means it only deals with threats after they’ve attacked and had an opportunity to do damage to your computer and files.
Norton Internet Security 2012 is different. Unlike free antivirus software, it provides comprehensive protection against today’s most dangerous online threats. Its multilayered system of technologies work together to proactively detect and remove threats to your PC, data and identity before they can do damage. And you get all this protection — for up to three computers — for about $1 a week.
