  • Nice post Atish!

    Nowadays, the main aim of the cyber-criminals is to exploit the popular internet businesses by causing widespread damage through powerful viruses.

    So there is always a need of antivirus software for a computer to protect it from the attacks of internal and external security threats.

    To maintain the health of a computer/laptop, it is essential to install a good antivirus software to protect it from virus and cyber crimes.

    Recently, I too presented a post related to free antivirus software and I got a good response from my readers.

    • Yes you are right, Using one of the best antivirus program is very important for computer users and it is much more important when you are using internet on your computer, because most viruses come from files downloaded from the internet.

      There are many other things to care about aside from antivirus programs which protects data from viruses 🙂

  • I would say Avast! Is way better than AVG. I personally have seen AVG not catch a lot of malware, but Avast! Will alert you even as the malware tries at enter your system. So Avast rocks for me)) IMHO

  • Been using Avast since my brother recommended it and i think its very good, and free! everytime that someone asks for a antivirus i recommend Avast now, and from what i see on this blog post iam doing the right thing.

  • I’ve always used the AVG free version, but it really interfered with my work if I happened to be on during a scan. With this new laptop, I’m looking for an alternative. It was nice to come across these other options. May look at Avira, the name sounds familiar for some reason.

  • Fewer unprotected PCs worldwide means fewer easy targets for botnets and virus infestations that can affect far more than just the owner of the PC.

  • I am using Microsoft security Essential which is a great antivirus. It is almost around 18 MB only and can detect virus and repair as well. But Avast remove the files which having viruses, if we have some important files then it remove it with virus. It’s my personal experience.

  • Thanks for the information. I have been using AVG free version, but needed to update the protection as I wasn’t sure if the software was slowing the system down.

    I am now going to check out the software and especially like the look of Avast and Avira


    • I’m using Avira. I’ve not had any problems with my PC since I started using it. Avira is very easy to setup and it automatically checks for updates.

  • About my opinion the avast is the best free anti-virus among all. Now i am using this anti-virus software without facing any problem. Although MSE is very good.

  • I never use Microsoft Security Essential and Bitdefender. So I cannot comment on them but I have used Avast, AVG and Avira. These three of antivirus are good but I prefer Avast, Its light antivirus and provide complete security. First I have used Avast as a free member and after that I have purchased the membership and become a paid user. Its work awesome.

  • Very useful list bro, But i want to mention that Avast and Avira antivirus can also delete system files which makes it odd and sometimes you need to reinstall your OS again.

    It is more useful if you use MSE or Bitdefender and update your antivirus regularly 🙂
