I could have told you this years ago. Software security suites are a lot like diet soda with a super-sized value meal. The label says it’s somehow “better for you.” Yet, in reality, neither is going to provide you with the desired result.

Now I am not saying that all of you should rush out there and uninstall your security software. Being as Windows users are generally running as administrators, you need all the help you can get. But for the love of common sense, don’t put complete trust in security software. It’s designed to earn its developers money — period.

Use your computers with care — any OS, any type of user (root or limited) — because this above article demonstrates that no security suite is going to provide the kind of security you think it is. At its core, you are running diet soda on your computer.
