Anti-Virus in Windows 8

Hi folks! So after installing Windows 8, you’ll probably want to install anti-virus. What should you use?

Well I should first point out that anti-virus is already included – Windows Defender is part of the package. However it’s not the greatest product, after all you get what you pay for. Microsoft Security Essentials is no longer available, as that is only available in the previous Windows 7 version.

Instead I would recommend at looking at the offerings from Kaspersky. Kaspersky has a great track record of keeping your computer secure and you can find it at great deals. Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 is Windows 8 ready and can be tried out for free in a 30 day trial.
