"Norton/Symantec/Trend Micro are Garbage Programs"
I've tried those three anti-virus software programs. They all slow the computers down to 70-percent and less of the speed a computer should run. With Trend Micro, it works great for a couple of months and then the computer slows down to a crawl. One virus made it's way through my Trend Micro program and blanked out my computer. What popped up on the screen was a statement to pay $70 to some Windows 7 website to get everything up and running again. After deleting Trend Micro, my computer runs like the wind. As for Norton and Symantec, they have so many holes in them that the backdoors are wideopen and leave the unsuspecting consumer to be violated repeatedly. Their usual excuse is that someone got the code and gave it away; so some hacker broke in and stole some information. I don't go for those lame excuses and lackadaisacal computer performance throught their own incompetence. I would like an anti-virus software that maintains computer speed as it should be, in consumer hands.
Trash and I don't mean TRS-80 from Radio Shack.
Still looking for an anti-virus software. Trend Micro used to offer keystroke encryption. The more things change the more they stay the same: lackluster performance and the usual suspects that sugarcoat the obvious. I've read some reviews that offer rotten cabbage remarks such as, "Oh, Norton is so lovely. It smells like roses in my cow pasture."
"Symantec, beautiful Symantec. Wherefore art thou Symantec? Yes, wherefore are thou when Anonymous attacks and some schmuck steals your codes and hacks in."
"Trend Micro. I give it five stars for the punches I've received into the face of my computer with lowered performance and viruses that somehow workthrough your so-called protection."
It's seems as if all anti-virus software is purposefully leaving backdoors open for some odd reason. We know Microsoft and their Windows systems have so many holes in them that they require constant patches (finger-in-the-**** scenarios). Close one opening and leave a hundred open. I hear that Linux is a pretty good system but I'm still searching for an anti-virus software that can't be hacked by some person living in his mother's basement, like Anonymous.
