    2010 Top 5 Windows Free Antivirus Software

    1. Avira AntiVir Personal


    Avira is one of the best free Antivirus software, which has advantages in Proactive Defense, and other signature based detection. It also has a previous record of performing well in tests conducted by AV-Gmbh. Avira AntiVir Personal includes a daily updated antivirus, fully functional and with access to all options. However, an advertisement screen will appear every time it updates. 2. Microsoft Security Essentials


    Microsoft Security Essentials is a extremely light weight with height Proactive Defense levels and little false positives. It is only worse than Avira in the detection rate. Although It doesn't suit enterprise of business purpose, using for home is a good choice. Only problem is that it requires a 40mb download of virus definitions before it can start functioning fully, also a genuine Windows is a must. 3. Avast! Free 5


    Formerly known as Avast Home Edition, Avast! Free is a perfect blend of all kinds of qualities required in an anti-virus. It neither tops anywhere, nor can be discarded of it being free. It performs better than Panda, McAfee, K7 etc in terms of False Positives, and has a decent detection rates, but lacks in heuristic scanning. AV-Comparatives gave it 2 star and it scored better overall as compared to Trend Micro, PC Tools, McAfee etc. 4. AVG Free Edition


    AVG is a blend of anti-virus and anti-malware. It lack basic firewall but it is sufficient for a home/new users. It also has a link-scanner which keeps a check in any third party exploits to be used onto the system. Its interface is easy to use and virus definitions can easily be updated. Though not a top-notch, but if you looking for something light, which can do almost all the jobs of protecting your system and which has clean interface with lots of feature, you should go for AVG Free Edition. 5. PC Tools


    It's an anti-virus with decent heuristics and good detection rate. Overall scores might not be mind-boggling and it scores a fifth spot primarily because of lack of alternatives. It still is new as a brand name in anti-viruses and has a lot of potential. If you are using a personal computer and not hooked up to Internet much, you can certainly go for PCTools.

    Kwanza nilianza na AVG, kisha AVIRA na sasa natumia AVAST kwa sababu moja tu AUTORUN.INF katika USB flash, avira ina detect na ku-Block, Avg Haioni kabisa , wakati Avast ina detect na kuondoa kabisa.
