Best anti-virus

11 posts in this topic

Following a new installation of Windows 10 I have decided to change my anti-virus. For the last several years I have been a beta tester for AVG but I am finding that I am getting too many false flags and AVG will not allow me to add them to a safe/excepted list.

Need recomdations for a new AV free of payware.

That's the one I was thinking of switching to Elias. Heard a few good reports over at the SOH and I believe that Jay recommends it here.

Best anti virus is "if you don't know the site you are going to, then don't go there";)! and I agree totally with Jorge regarding defender.

I have had a good run for many years using Avast! First as freeware, then the Pro version for the last two years. An account includes iOS and Android cover.

I have finished up going with ESET as recommended by Jay.

Me too, but I understand from PC Pilot Mag that in their recent tests Kasperski, Avast and ESET were very good, but Windows was to be avoided and so was Mcavey.  Avast was judges as the best of the freeware.
