Top 10 Best Sellers – Antivirus and Security Software

March 17, 2017

Antivirus software, now often referred to as security (suite) software, due to the innumerable threats, come in a variety of different brands. To get an idea, check out the top ten sellers at Amazon (see source links below).

I personally use a FREE antivirus program called Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition; however, you may feel more comfortable using one of the paid commercial versions such as reflected below.

Antivirus software was originally developed to detect and remove computer viruses, hence the name. However, with the proliferation of other kinds of malware, antivirus software started to provide protection from other computer threats. In particular, modern antivirus software can protect from: malicious browser helper objects (BHOs), browser hijackers, ransomware, keyloggers, backdoors, rootkits, trojan horses, worms, malicious LSPs, dialers, fraudtools, adware and spyware.[2] Some products also include protection from other computer threats, such as infected and malicious URLs, spam, scam and phishing attacks, online identity (privacy), online banking attacks, social engineering techniques, advanced persistent threat (APT) and botnet DDoS attacks.

Top 10 Best Sellers – Wi-Fi Range Extenders

March 10, 2017

Years ago when we set up wireless in our homes, we may have had one main desktop computer and a laptop that we wirelessly connected to the router. Today, our wireless connections in our homes have expanded to include, not only a laptop; but, our printers, smartphones, televisions, tablets, gaming platforms, security cameras, smart appliances and now artificial intelligence devices (such as Google Home and Amazon Echo).

As we continue to add these devices we find that our wireless signal begins to degrade as these devices often end up in “hard to reach” places. A solution to this problem is a Wi-Fi Range extender that serves as a bridge between the router and the device to boost the signal to reach those “hard to reach” places.

Below you will find the Top 10 Best Sellers at Amazon that you may want to explore and research. The top on the list is currently the NetGear N300…
