When it comes to protecting your computer it is essential that you use security software. A comprehensive internet security software package is best. After all, online is where the vast majority of people spend their computer time.

Although there are free versions of security software available, I have always paid for mine. I believe that a technology company needs to spend money on research and development to have effective, cutting edge products.

As of this writing the top 3 selling antivirus programs at Amazon.com are ranked in this order: 1) Norton Internet Security 2009. 2) McAfee Total Protection 2009. 3) Kaspersky Internet Security 2009. It should also be noted that Norton Internet Security 2009 has the most 4 and 5 star ratings and the fewest 1 star ratings from customers at the Amazon site.

The overall excellent ratings and sales for NIS 2009 may come as a surprise to some. The problems that irritated Norton users in the past have largely been resolved. The new product is easy to install, easy to configure, is very user friendly and very fast - it won't drag down your operating system. Norton Internet Security 2009 is so good that it has won new converts and customers.

In choosing security software you should pick one and not try to run multiple programs to try to do too many different jobs. You shouldn't need separate programs for every concern; this can lead to operating problems and conflicts in your system.

Norton Internet Security 2009 is both an antivirus and antispyware program that stops viruses, worms, spyware, bots and all types of malicious threats. This is actually the short list of every thing that it does. And while this software does a great job of protecting your computer it uses almost no system resources - less than 7 MB of memory.

Some of the awards that NIS 2009 has won include: PC Pro Recommended Award, Computer Shopper Editors' Choice, PC Magazine Editors' Choice and LAPTOP Magazine Editors' Choice Award.

The information in this article will hopefully encourage you to take a close look at your choices for security software. But no matter what you choose, just remember: Every computer needs antivirus protection.
