Sri Lankan is a hot spot for pirated software. From the day I know I can buy a Windows CD for just 100 LKR (Aprox $1). Later government started take action on the shops selling pirated copies of Windows. Government started with Windows and stopped with Windows. They never went ahead and worked against piracy afterwards. Still you can find loads of pirated softwares in the market.
But when it comes to Anti-Virus protection people are going for genuine products. They never went for pirated copies as most of the time pirated copies failed to protect their computers from Viruses and trogons.
Most of the people are attracted towards Kaspersky, though conventional antivirus softwares such as symantac and Mcafee available in the market. Main reasons are, user friendly interface of Kaspersky, its efficient and effective in working with virus and internet security and above all it’ll rarely mess up with the system.
One of my friends was using Bitdefender, and it’s such a pain. It’ll eat your system resources and most of the time it’ll start to conflict with your programes. My friend’s SLT ADSL connection was failing all the time and when he uninstalled BitDefender and installed Kaspersky nothing happened.
I bought a 3PC licence for 3000 LKR (only for Sri Lanka and Maldives) in Unity plaza and we shared it among 3 of us. Literally each licence costs about 1000 LKR. If you’re to go for a Single Licence, then you’ll have to spend 1700 LKR. That’s why it’s good you collect three people and buy a licence. It’ll be cost effective 😉
I’m not saying that Kaspersky is the best. But throughout my experience, Kaspersky has done a good job compare to any other Anti Virus, Internet security programme.
Please do share your experiences with Anti-virus software.
PS: According to one of my old campus lecturer, all viruses are created by Anti-virus manufacturers to sell their product.
