Which is a better free anti-virus?

Postby JuJuBe42 » 12 Oct 11, 5:16 am

Which is better?? :?

Would you happen to know? on this topic: free-software-and-solutions-f37/looking-for-free-anti-virus-program-t12135.html
they don't really discuss which is more common and maybe superior...


Does anyone in the forum happen to have an opinion, or familiarity? :dontknow: Or am I just fooling myself with the concept of "free"..??

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antivirus_software

It is difficult for companies offering free anti-virus to keep up with all that.

However these are among the best free Anti Virus
AVG http://www.avg.com/us-en/homepage (Free and paid)
Bit Defender http://www.bitdefender.com/ (Free and paid)
Microsoft Essentials http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_ ... Essentials (Free)

but stay away from these http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ro ... y_software

I use Live Onecare http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx and also Malwarebytes http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx. Both are free but Live Onecare only works in IE. I also use Adaware http://www.lavasoft.com/ which is also free.
