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

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.

Well There are a lot of free Antivirus considered the best like Avast and AVG, I guess because they have been in the market for many years..the are new others like ZenOK free antivirus is also considered a good one or Panda.

Hi Mate,

If you go to this website "Link: URL http://www.av-comparatives.org" you will see they have tested

a variety of antivirus software; both free-edition and pay-versions.

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".

Here are the summary result of avcomparatives virus testing "Link: URL http://www.av-comparatives.org/images/stories/test/summary/summary2010.pdf"

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

All the best,
-Brent907

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.
