Best PC antivirus

Hey,

What would you say is the best (freebie) PC antivirus?

I say Avira, you?

Re: Best PC antivirus

I use Avira and keep Malwarebytes at the ready if and when there's a problem. Avast started acting up for me about a year ago. AVG became a resource hog in my experience.

The 2 most common, the free versions of Norton and McAfee should never be used. They are popular just because they pay to be preinstalled on most new computers in hopes of getting you to upgrade to their paid services. IMO it is a marketing scam that puts you at risk.

For AV reviews I use Test antivirus software for Windows 7 - December 2014 | AV-TEST

2015 - Best for Free
Free AntiVirus Protection & Programs - Panda Security
or
360 Internet Security

2015 - Best for $$$
https://www.f-secure.com]F-Secure
or
Kaspersky Antivirus & Internet Security Protection Software



In ADDITION to ONE of the above ALSO use https://www.malwarebytes.org/





Posted over a year ago. Might be outdated now.

I use 360 Total. It has a lot of false positives. Better than false negatives but slightly annoying.

Re: Best PC antivirus

Common sense.
But seriously, I can tell if I'm treading risky ground and I keep my eye on my actions, and believe me I go all over the internet. Here's a cool site for you older folks www.cat3movie.us, get your ad blockers ready, and prepare to have the hardest boners of your life.
