Best free anti-virus , malware programs
The Best free anti-virus program is the one that offers you the best protection at the lowest cost. You can not get any cheaper than FREE. It does not make sense to go online, use email or the Internet without protection. If you have the money, it may make sense to purchase NORTON or some other major program. But if you do not feel you can afford or want to pay annual fees, there are some good alternatives.
There are some FREE programs that are rated by the top computer magazines as among the best. Of course you need to be careful. There are some techies who offer 'free programs' to unsuspecting users and these free programs infect the computer with the very sort of malware you are trying to avoid.
But I have done the research....and here is a list of some of the Best anti-virus programs given in the major computing magazines. Note I have listed these in alphabetical order, not in any order of preference.
- Avast is one of the best. Note: be sure your are downloading the FREE version. If you are going to pay for an anti-virus program, you may find a better program for the money.
- Another 'best" free anti-virus program that offers outstanding detection of malware is Avira Note it does not protect your email but it does an outstanding job in detecting virus and malware programs.
- Avg.com offersa free version
