A little more information explaining what makes these the top ten would make this interesting a readable. As it is it’s nothing more than a bunch of technical information.


This is just a list with a few free anti viruses. You don’t say what they do or what they can and thus your article is not informative.


i’ll add information soon.


I added information, removed two antirivuses and added two good free antiviruses


As a user…AVG takes over your computer. It does what it pleases so is no longer the big deal it was two years ago.

Avast is a waste of time. Slow, it clogs your computer and is
not worth the down load.

The ISO product is two thumbs up. Small, fast, works.

I have to disagree with Avast Anti-Virus being the highest recommedation on your list. I have to say it is a good anti-virus as I personally did use it for a good amount of years however I changed due to it being a resource hog, and the scan takes ages; I have found that Avira Anti-Virus found more viruses (due to its larger database) than Avast. Plus Avira does have heuristic scanning abilities too. I do like Avast’s new interface though – this is the one thing Avira needs to do.

IObit Security 360 you must not download. It basically uses illegally databases from numerous other anti-viruses such as MalwareBytes. At the moment MalwareBytes is sueing IObit.

AVG is horrible, and to be honest don’t know why so many people use it. It may be a very good anti-virus however the free version strips so many important features that I don’t recommend using it.

My anti-virus I am using now, which may be a surprise is Microsoft’s Security Essentials. It detected 5 viruses that non of the above anti-viruses catched. Download editors also experienced this, and therefore I think this new app may be the new free app on the market. Bad thing – no firewall.


AVG used to be the best one out there years ago, but now I agree with most of the other commenters – it’s slow and obtrusive. I currently like FortiClient as my choice for free anti-malware.

Nice list.




AVG used to be good but it became slow and the database has a nasty habit of including quite a lot of false positives.


Overall it’s a good list.


After I chose Microsoft Essentials i stopped getting those dump pop ups that freak you out with fake virus information. I wish i could get my background activities under control, indexing, backup programs running at wrong times bogging down my activities. Nice tips however,

Very useful information on Anti-viruses. I’m using Mcafee for one system and Norton for the other. I haven’t used the other anti-virus programs.


intereting article – I prefer avast!. AVG is terrible – I couldn’t shut it down – I tried everything, taskbar, task manager, main avg windows links, but it’s simply impossible :S So I dowloaded avast – its the best – but unfortunately I have to register it each 60 days. Kaspersky is also good, but there is no way to get license for free or cheap, so nobody will buy them for $29.99/ $45, etc. per year.


Interesting and informative article. If you like to make money online then visit:


Your article is way better then the original was!
Thanks for the informative share mate, this is good!


I suggest using AVG antivirus and Avira for not making a slow pc performance does not like Comodo slow and long.
