Avira AntiVir Personal for Windows

Avira Anti VIrus

Avira AntiVir Personal for Windows has an easy-to-use interface and pre-configured scan tasks to quickly scan your most important drives and folders. Right-click scans can be performed on individual files and folders in Explorer or on the desktop. Or, files can be dragged and dropped into the AntiVir console for quick scanning.


AVG Free Edition for Windows

AVG Anti VIrusI tried AVG last year and it worked so well. It is so far the lightest Anti Virus I have ever used so far. AVG Free Edition is a classic, one of the longest running free antivirus packages available for Windows XP/2000/NT/ME/98. Installing only 30Mb of files and 4 running processes.


Avast Home Edition for Windows

Avast AV In addition to standard scanning modes, Avast Home Edition also provides scans on bootup. This can greatly increase the chance of removing stubborn infectors, particularly those that use resuscitators to thwart removal attempts. Supports workstation only versions of Windows 95/98/Me, 2000, XP, and Vista and Windows 7.




PC Tools iAntivirus for Mac

iAnti Virus for MacFor Mac users, this may not be a significant limitation given that there are far fewer malware impacting the Mac OS. PC Tools iAntivirus guards against Mac malware, including viruses, worms, trojans, spyware and adware. Unlike some Mac antivirus software.




ClamXav for Mac

ClamX AV for MacIf you’re looking for free Mac antivirus software, ClamXav is certainly a virus scanner worth trying. ClamXav is based on the open source ClamAV virus scanner. Popular among open source fans, in practice ClamAV lags behind the detection capabilities of commercial antivirus software.

    I agree to the TOP 3 in the list.
    I personally agree Avira is rightly in the 1st place, it’s very powerful antivirus and I used to tell this to my friends. However, the scanning is taking a while and the initialization of interface is somewhat slow. Moreover, Avira is for high speed processor and pc with high RAM.

    About AVG, I only use this once and never use it again. I’m not satisfied to it’s performance.

    Lastly, Avast. This should be next to Avira. I love the advance and depth scanning of this antivirus, plus the new version Internet Edition, the interface is very cool. You can assure safe and secure online and offline pc usage.
