CA Anti-Virus Plus Anti-Spyware 2010 is a very user friendly and clearly designed security solution for your PC, but one that uses a lot of your PC's system resources.
Installation of CA Anti-Virus Plus Anti-Spyware 2010 will require the removal of any other anti-virus software you use, which can mean quite a long process. Once installed, it features the same features as most security software. CA Anti-Virus Plus Anti-Spyware 2010 will scan your system looking for threats, and then allow you delete those you want to. You can set the app to automatically scan incoming data and emails in real time, as well as set up the type of alerts you want, and schedule system backups.
CA Anti-Virus Plus Anti-Spyware 2010 has a very clear and simple interface. While you can alter various settings, they are very basic and limited. This makes it ideal for inexperienced users, but more advanced users may find it frustrating.
Despite its simplicity, CA Anti-Virus Plus Anti-Spyware 2010 is both a little slow, and heavy on system resources. Scans can take an incredibly long time, and will slow down your PC while in progress. The scans are not the most efficient or effective we have tested, but it is good enough at detecting the most common and important threats.
CA Anti-Virus Plus Anti-Spyware 2010 is a competent program, but a bit bloated and slow compared to the competition.
