  1. My favorite 3 are Avira, Avast and Avg. Never used Bitdefender Free edition, will try to check it out. Well free anti viruses saves us a lot of money, because not every body can afford to buy a paid version.

    1. even free anti virus are now competing paid one’s.. just there is few features more in paid one..

  2. All the five are good Antivirus. Which do you recommend?

    1. i recommend Avast, as it uses real-time protection and many new technologies in compare to paid one’s..

  3. Nice Article Isha! But I am shocked to see AVG in this list. I use Avira it is really awesome 😀
    The best antivirus(not free) is Vipre Antivirus.

    1. yup… i too used Avira and is the best free version for me but now there are many changes others free antivirus software’s.

  4. hi.. as such free anti-virus are easily available on the site and they are easily to download from several different site…but still what is benefits of downloading that ….even if you will installed a anti-virus on you system…virus will be there in just a month …the reason is every day the hackers and other techies create diffrent virus to break you security or to peep into you personal system….so i would rather suggest you to just take a new antivirus so that by daily update you pc will be fully updated with latest threats ….

    rest the disission is upto you

    1. i agree with you aadi but free antivirus can also updated daily to keep away from the latest threats…

  5. Its good to see my favorite AV avira listed in above article. If you want premium version for free, check out the link in my commentluv. Enjoy avira premium promotion.
    Thanks for the great list of free antiviruses. Avira is the best antivirus I have been using since last 2 years and fully satisfied with it.

    1. yes, Rajesh i too agree with you.. Avira is the best one… And thanks for the link for the premium one..

      1. You are welcome friend.

  6. What about free Panda Cloud AV? Any idea.

    1. i haven’t used Panda Cloud. Thanks for adding one.

  7. Avast is a Great Anti-Virus Software, its proven and tested.

  8. Avira works for me, sure they have an Ad popup every so oftent, but it is not bloated and works well. I use this in conjunction with Malwarebytes.

  9. I’m using Essentials, and until now everything works smoothly.

  10. I have tried Avira Antivirus and have good comments as feedback. Avira does not slow down the computer and even picks up threats that are from the web pages

  11. I have always use AVG and compared to the others I have used they are still the best.

  12. If you want a free and a best antivirus for a lifetime, then go for microsoft security essentials. its so easy to understand and use. Very powerful and easy to use. i love it. and mostly its free of cost if you are using a genuine windows. So why dont you get one of the best antivirus in world now.

  13. I personally would put AVG as # 1 because it gets viruses that others don’t even catch. Just my personal experience.

  14. I’m using Kaspersky Pure.If you are looking for a free antivirus program try Microsoft Security Essentials.

  15. Thanks for nice list.I’m searching for this.Btw Avira is the best Antivirus.

  16. I routinely remove Norton from my customer’s machines. Most of the time they ignore or don’t notice the warning of the free trial ending. It’s bloatware at best.Avast is my favorite. I used to recommend AVG as well… but I have noticed a lot of spyware slips past it and shuts off the Security Center. Not good!

  17. I would recommend antivirus Im currently using, ZenOK Free Antivirus, it’s giving away free licenses of their Free Antivirus Software 2012, I got mine already from its webiste a friend of me told me about zenok.

  18. I use malwarebytes for my free software. After using many other free and some paid ones too, Malwarebytes was the most consistent in finding new viruses and trojans. I have never had spyware or a virus that it did not find and remove.

  19. I am using BitDefender from last 4 years.. and its amazing..

  20. I personally prefer Avast Free Antivirus. It has been proven to be a good and countable antivirus for my laptop for years. It is easy to use too and also new user friendly.

  21. im using Avast antivirus.its leading in both security features and scanning speed.
    Having antivirus protection is critical, fortunately, easier than ever.
    my small tip-Remember to update Avast virus definitions periodically by clicking on the lightning bolt icon found on the left side of the console.
    AVAST is a best antivirus ever…

  22. My favorite is kaspersky, please get some full version trick of it.

  23. Free things are always goods as it causes no harm but when it comes to performance many free stuff gets blacklisted. Avast is the best free antivirus but in front of Kaspersky its not even half but Kaspersky is not avaiable for free. Yet you wrote a beuatiful article.

  24. Avast is no doubt is the number one free and most used antivirus in the world.

  25. Great list indeed. Avast is my favorite among the lot and I haven’t faced any major virus problem when I was using it in my system. It is in fact better than many paid antivirus applications too. Among the paid ones I like Quickheal and Bit defender.

  26. nice article i more like quickheal anti virus but its not provide fee so i purchase it last month and i am happy. its doing great work. thanks for sharing free antivirus software list.

  27. Nice post Anand! I used to use Avira some while ago but I can’t stand the frequent pop-up advertisement that urged me to upgrade. So I switch to BitDefender now. So far, I think it’s pretty good at protecting my PC. It has no ads, no pop-up or other annoyance. It’s a bit heavy, though, so overall score would be 8/10.

  28. I don’t think using a free antivirus when you surf the web a lot is a good idea.
