Which anti-virus program should I use for my computer?
25
April

We have seen many anti-virus programs on our customers computers. We have 25 years’ experience of testing these different programs out. 9 times out of 10 these big anti-virus programs such as MacAfee, Norton’s, Kaspersky, and Trend Micro usually are their problem. 

Customers who were experiencing a slow computer, or network issues, it was usually tied into the anti-virus program. We would remove them, and boom problem solved. Once you see this year after year it might be time to find one that does not cause those kinds of problems. 

So, we have had the best luck with AVG Anti- Virus. It does not seem to slow down your pc and does not cause networking issues. It leaves you alone for the most part, and just does its job. We use the free version of this product for many reasons such as 

  1. Its free!
  2. Once people realize that there is no program that can prevent them from getting viruses, then they will not want to spend a ton on them.
  3. It does not slow down your computer to the point of you not even wanting to use it.
  4. It protects, and scans for rootkits, viruses, and some adware. 

You can set it to scan at any time of the day or night. We suggest running a scan manually so that you know exactly what it finds and remove those files yourself to insure the deletion of them. The internet has so many threats out there, so it’s important to have a good reliable program that is working in the background to help protect you. 

AVG Anti-Virus can be downloaded at many different places, but you have to be careful to pick a safe site to download it from. We use a site call https://ninite.com. This is a safe place to download this, and other software. We have made this as easy as we could to help our customers download it safely. 

 
 

You will want to look for Security. Check the box for AVG. Scroll down to “Get Ninite"

 
 
 
 

Click on Get your Ninite. Follow instructions. Basically, click next, and install it. You will see a progress bar of completion. Once its completed you will see the icon on your desktop. Double click on AVG and run a scan to make sure there are no current viruses. 

We offer virus/malware removal. So if you would like us to clean up your system and install programs, just let us know.

We hope this information is helpful. If you have any questions about this, please call us anytime. (859) 635-9909

My computer quit working just as my wife was in the middle of using it for Vacation Bible School last night. She was panicking. I began to look online and saw Community Computers near where I live. I checked the reviews and it had a great rating. I called this morning and explained my situation. I was told to bring my laptop in and he would see what he could do. When I took it in I also shared with him another issue I had been experiencing, my wireless connection was not working . He said he would really try to find out the issue so we would have it for Bible School. About 2 1/2 hours later he called to give the good news that the problem was just a bad cord. When picking it up he also told me he gave it a good checking over and tried to repair my non wireless connection for over an hour. He then told me instead of trying to go into the laptop to change a chip which could be costly, he sent me to Staples for a solution of a $30.00 wireless adapter. I was very impressed with my experience Community Computers. I would encourage anyone who has computer issues to check them out. You will not be disappointed. Also, the price I paid was very reasonable.read more
