Protecting Your Investment
While there is no end to the style and variety of programs you can spend your money on to keep your laptop running smooth and free of Virus's, Spyware's, Worms, Trojans, Registry bloat, Registry corruption, Junk files and corrupt files on your drive, you need not spend much if any of your funds to keep your laptop investment running smooth. Below are some free programs that do a fine job of protecting your laptop. Then there are some paid programs that offer very good service for their price. Keep in mind, just because we may not list your specific program here, it does not
means we do not think it a good program. We simply offer some suggestions that can accomplish the desired goal of protecting your laptop for little to no money out of pocket. Some paid programs offer a good value by integrating all the desired programs into one program. If this is your desire
then by all means do that. Just be sure to review their effectiveness and stability. M-Tech has found that most programs do a decent job of protecting your against virus's but fall short when it comes to compatibility with our system itself. As a classic example,
Security Software To Avoid
M-Tech STRONGLY discourages the use of any Norton (Symantec)
Anti Virus products, either by themselves alone or in a
suit of programs. We have found that Norton conflicts with more computers than it helps. This isn't to say it does not protect you against virus,
junk and intruders. It surely does, but the cost to you is erratic performance. We have found that customers calling with support questions that lend themselves to bizarre behavior on the laptop
itself, are almost always because the customer was using a Norton Anti-Virus product. In addition, RAID 0 users need to be very careful as to their choice of protection. Norton is the kiss of the death with a software RAID controller. Feel nervous about selecting your next suit of protection products. You needn't, Here is a list of programs that seem to do a good job. Remember, this isn't a list of all programs, just ones we have tested and found a solid performer for the money spent.
Other security programs to avoid, it saddens us to have to include Zone Alarm to this list but more than a few people report that once Zone Alarm included the Kaspersky Anti Virus engine in the full security package Zone Alarm offers, their computers become almost unresponsive. Of course it is no mistake that we have found this to be the case with the latest release of Kaspersky's retail Anti Virus as well. Once in a while we see an upgrade from Avast that also causes the slow down, it seems though that AVAST eventually corrects the issue. Since it keeps coming back we must include AVAST on the list of Anti Virus programs to avoid. Another recent addition to the Anti Virus programs to stay away from is AVG. Owners of many computer brands report slowdowns so severe they think their computer has froze. Below are some free and good programs that will keep you running safe and fast, try them.
Other Programs To Avoid.
While we are on the subject of programs to stay away from it is worth mentioning that many popular free file sharing programs can sacrifice your computers safety and integrity buy selling your unused drive space, internet bandwidth and CPU usage to the highest bidder during your off peak times of usage,. ITunes is s very popular file sharing program that many people use and have no idea that during the night or off hours your computers CPU, hard drive and internet connection may be running programs for online advertising and marketing firms. Apple and other companies promoting this freeware make their money by selling contracts to these marketing firms to use your computers resources when you are not on your computer. Many advertisers use these off site rental systems to do their mass email marketing campaigns., While Apple seems careful enough not to sell your computer resources to illegal sites, other programs like Zune are not so careful. Not only do these programs open up a back door for outside users that could easily be exploited, but you could also be lending your computer unknowingly to illegal web activity such as child porn or maybe something as harmless as emailing that has spam violations. M-Tech is happy to show you ways to manage your music downloads if you wish to avoid taking any chances. We know this seems to bizarre to be true so we encourage you to review the small print on the contract the next time you click the 'Accept' icon, the file sharing and CPU rental is all spelled out for you making this a very legal action on the part of the software provider. So you are in fact agreeing to let them make money from your laptop computer while you sleep in exchange for the programs like ITunes and Zune making your music or other downloads easy to manage. Of course many of these programs also cause bizarre computer behavior because of their very nature they act upon the deepest parts of your operating system. It can be very difficult to diagnose poor working computers with these styles of programs running in the background since they are often the cause of the poor performance.
