Which antivirus software reviews can you trust?

Selecting a particular antivirus is an important and significant decision that one takes. After all, this one decision can make or break your computer. Thus, before you select a particular brand or company, it would be wise to check what other people have to say about the same. Most of the people looking to obtain information about an antivirus that they intend to get or buy often look for the experiences of others so as to see if they found the antivirus to be useful or not. What this does is to give them the confidence that they are getting a good product if they get positive information or it propels them to stay away from the antivirus if they get information that they did not wish to see. The question arises then about the legitimacy of the reviews.

It is known that it is very easy to hire a person to write an antivirus software review that is biased and thus it is very important that you develop a keen eye for these types of reviews. The first thing that gives it away is the fact that it may be a new antivirus and there may not be a lot of information about it on the internet. All of a sudden a lot of information floods the internet and suddenly there are hundreds of websites that are talking about this new antivirus. This is a clear signal that someone somewhere is working very hard to make sure that everybody knows about this great new thing.

Another thing that may give away fake a antivirus software review is finding different websites, forums and sources of information that have copy pasted the same information or articles about the antivirus. Finding a few may not be such a bad idea but if you find very many then this is a clear sign that this is a biased source of information.

So how do you find the real thing?

The best way to go about this is to look for forums that talk about the antivirus that you are interested in. this will help you see the software through the eyes of the people who post on these forums. Most of these people are just normal people who may have used the antivirus and have something to say about that. You are bound to find a lot of unbiased information here due to this simple fact.

The other way that you can find genuine information is to look at the websites that sell the antiviruses and try to locate the forum sections of the websites. If they have one and they give writers and users the chance to comment, then you will also find a lot of unbiased information here. This is a actually the best way to go because on the same website you will be able to get the antivirus if you find that the comments that you see are enough to steer you in the direction of getting the antivirus.
