Antivirus Software/Inutit Software
by Jack_Murray_66 - 2/3/13 10:57 AM
Ok I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite P855-S5312, primarily for business use, primarily for an accounting firm and I am going to try and run multiple versions of Quickbooks software(2010,2011,2012,2013) as most of the time we are dealing with live files, that need to remain in their current versions in order to be successfully restored to the clients computer.
So I guess I have two questions. 1. I still have not booted this thing up as I am really trying to be thorough and find out which anti-virus software best suits me. I have McAfee on my desktop and my old laptop, but I am also a Comcast subscriber and if I am not mistaken they offer Norton for free.
I figure now would be as good a time as ever to switch over to the most effective/efficient software out there.
I read the reviews of the AVGs and Avast users and they are such a mixed bag. I don't mind paying for peace of mind, I certainly don't think $70 annually is anything extraordinary to protect my assets.
If you were starting from scratch what would you install? Soup to nuts, AV, Spyware, Malware, I need everything, I have a blank slate, and Windows 8.
2. Anyone know anything about installing older versions of software onto windows 8?(like Quickbooks 2010 and earlier?)
