What antivirus is recommended to protect my PC?


Hello Samantha.

Why buy when you can opt for free antiviruses?  

Some of the best ones are:

1.  Avast! Free Antivirus – currently the most popular freeware antivirus because of its ease of use and being a full-featured antivirus.

2.  Avira Antivirus – has the highest detection rate among the free antiviruses.  It is arguably better than Avast! but a slow update process is one of its disadvantages.

3.  AVG Free Antivirus – another popular antivirus that is slightly below Avast! in terms of performance.

Each of the above antiviruses also offer paid versions of their antvirus offering other extras such as firewall or 24-hour tech support.

Other top-rated commercial antiviruses are:

1.  Kaspersky

2.  Nod32

Hope this helps!

There are many great antivirus programs you can download and use on the internet. They just vary by price for the subscription aside from the fact that they also offer free versions of the program but with limited features. One example is Sophos Home Antivirus. It supports Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10.

For Mac, it supports OS X 10.10 Yosemite, 10.11 El Capitan, 10.12 Sierra, and 10.13 High Sierra. The following web browsers are supported: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 and higher, and Microsoft Edge. Sophos Home is designed for home users and non-commercial usage. If you want to upgrade to premium, it costs $50 a year. Another one you can try is Norton Security Deluxe.

It supports Windows XP Service Pack 3 (32-bit only), Windows Vista Service Pack 1, Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10 both 32-bit and 64-bit. This is the combination of Norton Antivirus and Norton Internet Security. Other great security products are the ones from ESET.
