AV-TEST sparks the Sleeping Mind

By Neha Subscribe to RSS | February 28th 2012 | Views:

Today the market is overflowing with Internet security or antivirus software. Isn’t it so? Obviously, it is; despite that when it comes to install an antivirus software on a PC, it becomes hard to conclude. Realizing the trauma of this dilemmatic situation, a few independent software testing firms have started publishing their test reports, which are based on the individual performance of different antivirus products. AV-TEST Institute is a renowned agency that evaluates the effectiveness of a security software by means of ‘real-world’ test, where each security software is subjected to a malware sample holding both known and unknown threats. This test is a good indicator of how capable a security suite or antivirus package will be on the practical ground. Repair and usability are other two significant parameters that are crucial in assessing these products. Here ‘repair’ means the ability of the antivirus to overcome damaged or corrupted files, and ‘usability’ portrays the influence of the security products on the computer resources, false-positive findings during a system scan and the display of false warnings.

Based on the test antivirus reviews are available with leading online magazines such as PC World and PC Magazine from where you can assimilate important information. Analyzing those, you can install a compatible antivirus product on your computer or laptop. It is recommended to uninstall any previous or outdated security software, if already present. In case, your machine is already infected and you are unable to install the product then first go for an online virus removal tool, and disinfect your system first. At times, situations may go beyond your control, and you may fail to recover from it. Some stubborn or hidden viruses and malware may become the crux defeating you on all fronts. If that’s true, then go for some sorts of additional support. Cling to any antivirus support provider to do it remotely.

Many a time, it has been observed that post-installation or even after update or upgrade the product creates problems with features like communication, browsing and sharing network resources. E-mail send/receive, sharing of data, files, folders and other network resources could be affected badly. Above all, installation turns to be futile when there is even a minor fault with the settings. Online antivirus help portals can resolve all such problems. Experts can explore and interpret the hidden report of the Windows Event Viewer and Windows Task Manager to know about the fault. They can reinstall, repair or configure the products successfully to make it fully functional. Even more, experts will configure Windows Firewall, browser, e-mail client, and update Windows. They can configure Windows Live Essentials components such as Mail, Instant Messenger, Writer, Movie Maker, Photo Gallery and more. Customizing the security settings of the social networking sites is also essentials to keep intruders at a bay.

Antivirus helpdesk can also customize the security setting for Windows Server Operating System. It can deploy and manage Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer tool that secretly monitors the security updates and forthcoming vulnerabilities. Experts will help to successfully setup and configure Microsoft Online Services and data centers.
