There are a lot of people who don’t want to waste money on Antivirus programs. Today we’re going to talk about some top Free Antivirus Software that you can use on your computer in order to keep it protected against viruses, malwares and other bad files.

BitDefender Antivirus Free Edition  

BitDefender Antivirus is available for Windows XP or later and Android 2.3 or later. This antivirus comes with a real time shield, active virus control, rootkit and intrusion detection and even a HTTP scanning. The antivirus also received a new feature, which allows it to adapt the software for particular tasks such as playing games, watching movies etc.


To make things even better, the BitDefender Antivirus Free Edition comes with banking protection, parental control system and a firewall.

AVG Antivirus 

The AVG Antivirus can be installed on Windows XP or later and Mac OS X 10.8 or later. It is good to know that the 2015 version of AVG Antivirus received a revamp and now it comes with a better user interface and the ability to block infected links also (besides the usual virus/malware detection). AVG Antivirus is one of the smallest anti-viruses out there and it also includes malware protection.


We think that the phishing protection should be improved, but we’re pretty sure that the developers will take care of that in the near future.

However, there are people who will think that the installation and execution process is a bit slow compared to other free antivirus software out there.

Qihoo 360 Total Security
