Avast is one of the best-known names in antivirus protection, and with good reason. The Avast Free Antivirus application is a full-service antivirus that protects users from viruses, malware, Trojans, and other types of attacks. The application is also causes little to no system drag, and it includes several features you won’t find in other free antivirus applications.

One of the neatest features we discovered while testing Avast is the Do Not Disturb Mode (previously called Gaming Mode). This feature is designed to prevent pop-ups and other interruptions while gaming or streaming, to ensure you don’t have to deal with distractions at a critical moment.

Other noteworthy features are the WiFi Inspector that scans WiFi networks for malicious activity, which is a perfect complement to the behavioral scanning that Avast uses to detect possible suspicious behavior from installed applications, and browser extensions that warn you if you type a URL incorrectly or end up on malicious site while surfing.

Avast is available for Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 (SP1 or higher) Vista, and XP (SP3 or higher); macOS 10.10 (Yosemite) or later, and Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean, API 16) or higher. The antivirus application also has a super simple to navigate interface, making it a breeze to control.

#2 McAfee Total Protection –

There are a variety of paid options in the antivirus market that, at first blush, would seem affordable. But when you consider that their costs are for one license, it might not seem like the best option.

McAfee, however, is a different story. When you pay for McAfee’s Total Protection, you might pay a bit more than you would for single options from competing providers. But when you amortize that cost over the 10 licenses you get with purchase, you quickly realize that you’re paying little per unit to get your hands on a robust option.

In addition to that, McAfee’s solution includes a variety of features to keep you safe, including virus and malware protection. It also removes bloatware or unwanted software often installed by PC vendors from your machine and will lock your files if a device is stolen.

When you’re surfing the Web, a feature called McAfee WebAdvisor analyzes the sites you’re on and tells you when you’re trying to access risky pages. One other benefit – a password manager; this helps you create secure credentials and safely store those credentials in your machine.

McAfee also works on a variety of devices, including Microsoft Windows 10, 8.1, 8, and 7 (SP1), macOS X 10.12 or later, Android 4.1 or higher, and iOS 10 or later.

On the anti-virus side, Bitdefender sniffs out possible threats and keeps an updated list of potential threats to limit your chances of being targeted.

If you’re looking for something simple to use to improve your computer safety, F-Secure SAFE is a good place to start. The application has an easy-to-use interface, and can essentially be self-sufficient (if that’s your preference) once it’s set up.

F-Secure scans your machine for everything from viruses to spyware and completes automatic updates behind the scenes; so you can stay on top of the latest threats without needing to be too heavily involved. The software automatically removes the malware, of course; and according to the company, will perform all its functions without slowing down your machine. This includes automatic protection when you land on a payment page and a family security system that allows you to include multiple devices — 3, 5, or 7, depending on the plan you choose; and set parental controls to suit your parenting style.

F-Secure SAFE is also available for a variety of devices; including: Windows 7 (SP1) or later, macOS 10.12 (Sierra) or later, iOS 11 or later, and Android 5.0 or later. Unfortunately, ARM-based tablets are not supported for F-Secure SAFE at his time. F-Secure Safe also has a 30-day, three device free trial, that requires you to register with the site to access the free trial; but it doesn’t not require payment information.

Microsoft Windows Defender Security Center comes pre-installed on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10; but unlike past versions of Windows Defender, the newest version of the protection software is full-featured and robust as many other free offerings on the market.

Microsoft Windows Defender offers real-time definition-based antivirus protection for viruses, malware, Trojans, ransomware, and other threats; but it also monitors behavioral changes on your system to root out potential malware threats early. In addition, Windows Defender includes a firewall to protect your system, parental controls, and scanning for USB drives, external hard drives, and disk drives.

Usability is another nice feature of Windows Defender. The easy-to-navigate interface makes it simple to use for even inexperienced users; but more advanced users can tweak capabilities for the antivirus scanning and firewall; and even make changes at the registry level.

The one downfall for Windows Defender is the frequency with which it catches false positives. Windows Defender has been known to label JavaScript and other programming code as malicious; when in fact, it’s not only benign, but it belongs in the system; so users may want to exercise caution before deleting files flagged as being malicious.
