Which free antivirus is better?


Hi Mikejackson,

Yes AVG is a good free anti-virus, but the most popular and the number one on most review charts would be Avast Home Edition 6.0. One of the reasons that make Avast 6.0 the choice of most users is because with Avast 6.0 the whole process from installing to scanning had been made quick and easy without any loss to its effectiveness in detecting harmful programs.

Naturally Avast 6.0 isn't for everyone and selecting the best Antivirus that can cater to your specific needs still comes down to preference and there is a wide range of free anti-virus software's that you can select from, but I would still recommend Avast 6.0.

Hello mike.

For me it is a tossup between Avira Antivir Personal and Avast! Free Antivirus.  Both are equally suitable for your laptop because both use only a small amount of memory and are not CPU intensive.  During on-demand scanning, both can scan fast and does not slow down your system.  Avira has the advantage of having the highest detection rate among all free antiviruses meaning it detects the most number of viruses.  Avast! has a slightly lower detection rate but it still remains popular due to its quick updates, nice user interface and multiple modules for protection such as E-mail, P2P, Web, Behavior, Script, etc.  Avira has a nag screen every time it updates and updates take a long time.

Like the above poster said, it will all boil down to what you prefer.  Give both a try but be sure to uninstall one first before installing the other.  It is never a good idea to use 2 antivirus solutions simultaneously.
