Free antivirus

Free antivirus for home users* – yes, you read it right. As most of the users already know there are a lot of free antivirus applications available. Some of the most reputable security companies have offered to their users free version of their software alongside their commercial one. Although these free options are available for a long time, most of the users decide to go for the paid version and believe that paying for it will protect them better from any bugs or online threats. While I don’t want to convince anybody in one or the other, I might say from my experience that there is no 100{b64b899cbb79a78fdecc8112ee61218e92903170d910afcd992b418a649e22cf} effective solution – it depends very much on your behaviour as user. If you ignore the warnings and security messages, while installing software by simply pressing the “Next” button a few times and if you don’t check what you actually install – nothing will help you. Of course, using the paid versions of the antivirus software may offer you priority customer support, faster updates, or other extra features, and it is up to you to decide if you want to pay for them or not.Free antivirus

I cannot guarantee that they will work for you or if they will meet your expectations – it’s up to you to decide whether to download and install them and how long to use them for.
