As half-year end approaches, it’s time for us to gear up the protection of your home PCs and bring you an overview of the best free antivirus software options available for your Windows powered desktop, laptop or ultrabook.
Top Free Antivirus Software for 2013
All of the mentioned antivirus software are compatible with Microsoft Windows 8.
1. Avast Antivirus Home Edition
Being a personal user of Avast Home Edition for more than six years now, this product has never let me down.
It’s fast, it’s simple and it keeps you safe from online threats.
2. AVG AntiVirus FREE 2013
Detection rate is slightly lower than Avast, but online reviews are on par.
3. Microsoft Windows Defender
Although detection rate is lower than both the above mentioned software, this is a worthy product directly from Microsoft.
Well, those are the top three recommended free anti-virus programs and we don’t think any other free antivirus software would beat these anytime soon.
However, here are a few of other options:
- Avira Free Antivirus
- Comodo Free Antivirus
- Panda Cloud Antivirus
