    I’m not antivirus applications tester but from point of view very good antivirus software is Avira antivir - http://www.free-av.com/
    I use it for years now. it is good. Do not need much resources, pick up updates alone and so on.

    Check it up.

    I was using kaspersky internet security 2010. But due to some reason or another it wasnt getting rid of a keylogger I had downloaded from somewhere. After installing Avast! antivirus it instantly got rid of it and I shortly uninstalled Kaspersky afterwards.

    Not to mention its free, the reviews on cnet give it 4.8/5 stars

    Check it out: http://download.cnet.com/Avast-Free-Antivirus/3000-2239_4-10019223.html

    Hi buddy,

    If you are looking for freeware program I can recommend „AntiVir“ too. In my opinion it’s the best freeware antivirus because it has a fast scan engine and updates will be released very often.

    Kaspersky Internet Security is also very nice but not for free.

    AVG, Kaspersky or Norton are what i always use. I download a lot and have never gotten a virus. They aren't free but for all the features you get with them its worth it.

    Hi Mate,


    If you have a visa of something similar this website recommends "F-secure" which is an antivirus you have to

    pay for; but you can get a trial version of this to see how it performs on your laptop.

    If you want to free edition of antivirus get "Avira antivirus".


    P.S. I personally like to use 'Norton 360 or Norton Antirus'.




    All the best,

    I use Avira antivir too. I use it for years now and for me is the best one. I like it because it doesn’t need much notebook resources, doesn’t slow down notebook’s performance and runs quiet in the background.

    I am using Avast and I am satisfied with it.
    Additionally it is good to use some anti- malware/adware like adwcleaner.
    And adblocking soft like adblock plus
    I was looking for ad blocking soft and came across things like fake adblocker-manger - (even spelling is wrong) which was in bundled installation file

    Thanks to Adwcleaner for the removal.

    So single antivirus cannot do everything.
