It should be noted right away that all of the listed antiviruses have paid versions. We did not consider them. The selection includes only free solutions without time limits. In other words, selected antiviruses that do not ask for payment after several weeks or months of use.
Avira Free Antivirus
Avira Free Antivirus is a complete solution to protect your computer from any malicious programs. The complex checks not only files, but also potentially dangerous Internet connections, and thanks to extensions for popular browsers, it also detects malicious websites.
The best part is that with all this, Avira does not load the computer much. After installing the full range of protection, the computer does not start spending 90% of its resources on maintaining the life of the antivirus, which is especially important for owners of budget computers and laptops.
It is important that there is a minimum of advertising inside the Avira browser. Nevertheless, the antivirus is free, so from time to time it asks if the user wants to upgrade to the paid "full" version. It strains, but not very much. There are much more annoying antiviruses (one even in this collection).
AVG AntiVirus Free
AVG AntiVirus Free is an excellent antivirus, the developers of which have made the main bet on protection against phishing. And it is very commendable. Despite the increase in computer literacy, more and more Internet users are becoming victims of phishing attacks every year. By installing AVG, you are very likely to protect yourself from scammers.
However, the antivirus detects ordinary viruses and trojans successfully – the database is updated regularly. The only unpleasant disadvantage of AVG is the forced installation of the extension for the AVG SafePrice browser. If you install AVG, be sure to keep this in mind and remove the extension if necessary.
Panda free antivirus
Panda Free Antivirus is very different from most other antivirus programs. First of all, the interface. Here it is unusual, but attractive and easy to use, plus available in Russian.
Panda has a built-in free VPN – a trifle, but nice. But most importantly, and there is really so little where you will meet, Panda has a special emergency mode. It is activated if the computer suffered from viruses or from the actions of the user and stopped turning on. In this case, the antivirus allows you to perform a recovery.
Avast free antivirus
Once the best free antivirus Avast is now experiencing not the best of times. Largely due to the fact that the antivirus has become too often and too intrusive (and sometimes not obvious) to request the transition to the paid version. Of course, everyone does not like this, from which the negative comes.
However, as an antivirus Avast is still good and as easy to use as possible. The user only needs to give permission to conduct intelligent scanning once in a certain period of time and that’s all. Next, Avast will figure it out, including automatically and fairly quietly checking files for potential threats in real time.
Another plus Avast – a large number of additional features. True, they will have to be sorted out. But if you want to do this, then many of them will definitely be liked.
