The antivirus is a software that used to stop, detect as well as eliminate viruses on a computer. However free security applications don’t usually provide as much functions as commercial suites, their quiet simplicity tend to be beneficial of course the cost can’t be defeated. 

We’ve rounded up the best free antivirus products (see below) to enable you to choose the best product to meet your needs.

Avast Free Antivirus

This friendly and attractive antivirus tool is our recommended free option. That’s partly thanks to great malware protection, but it also offers a generous set of secondary features (by the standards of free software), including a configurable sandbox and an easy-to-use remote assistance tool. A commendably low impact on system resources seals the deal.

AVG AntiVirus Free 2013

AVG is one of the best-known names in free antivirus software, and its latest suite features a new interface that’s inspired by Windows 8. Not all of the features on display are included in the free package – you’ll have to upgrade to a paid-for edition to get the full function – but if all you need is basic malware scanning then AVG is worth considering.

Avira Free Antivirus 13

Avira Free Antivirus offers a clear and usable front-end – and it’s among the most lightweight security suites we’ve seen. As with AVG, the feature set is limited, as the developer wants you to move up to the paid-for edition. But if you’re fed up of bloated security software it’s worthy of consideration.

Microsoft Security Essentials

No roundup of free security software is complete without Microsoft’s own free antivirus tool. Sadly, a very poor performance in our malware detection tests means Security Essentials is one option we can’t recommend.
