Protect your Mac or PC for free.
Here are three of the top free virus protection options for your PC.
Avast is a veteran of virus protection, with its first release dating back 25 years, to the early days of the internet. Boasting 200 million users worldwide, it is the most popular option for free virus protection. The large number of users makes Avast very efficient when it comes to detecting and preventing the latest threats in the online world. With a simple user interface, automatic updating, email scanning and plenty of other features, Avast Essential is a great option for protection. I have been personally using this software for years, and I haven't had a single issue with online protection since I installed it.
A great option for free protection is AVG, it's a classic and it’s easy to use. It may pester you a bit to upgrade to the paid version, but if you can resist then it is a great free tool for protection. One of AVG's most popular features is an internet toolbar which monitors the websites you use and tells you whether or not they are safe to browse.
Bitdefender has been around since 2001 and has been gaining popularity ever since. It's simple and sticks to the essentials, which is great if you don't want to clutter up your PC with lots of software. If your PC is a few years old and running slow already, Bitdefender may be the right option for you.
