Anti Virus Tests

SecurityOver the last few months I have been testing various anti virus software for windows. Kaspersky Total Security 2016, Eset 9, BitDefender Total Security 2016. The lightest on system resources was Eset with Bitdefender being the one that slowed the system the most. Booting the system saw considerable slow downs using defender on a pentium based computer with a WD HDD on windows 10. Reinstalling Eset resolved all issues. Reading as many independent AV Lab tests as I could (not PC magazine reviews) I have come to the conclusion that for a modest budget system Eset scored high, on my own i3 with intel SSD, Kaspersky was by far the best option. Norton my old favourite also scores high but has become expensive and there are just as good or better software out there at a much reduced cost.

From now on Kaspersky will be my number 1 choice closely followed by Eset then Norton if prices drop.

At long last - Back online

NewsFrom time to time the server admins update their software, my old vBulletin package was simply too old and subsequently incompatible with the updates. To be blunt - it BROKE. I took a while testing a lot of other packages but I have finally found that PHP Fusion is not only right, but is fast and includes everything I need for a personal site.

I say personal site deliberately as any comments articles etc. are my own personal views or opinions, nothing more should be read into published content. Any articles by others published on this site does not mean endorsement of same, simply that I found the article may be of interest to others. Enjoy the site as we build it up over the coming weeks and don't be afraid to click any link under the left navigation menu to see what it contains.
