Here are the best free anti-malware software products for Windows:
- BitDefender Antivirus Free Edition
BitDefender Antivirus Free Edition is a discreet and efficient free software to successfully protect your PC from malware. The program is a silent but strong software that doesn’t even ask you questions at the moment of installation. It’s just doing its job, identifying and eliminating all risk to your devices security and safety.
- AVG Antivirus Free
This software features a simple interface and effective scanning processes with remote activation. On the other hand, you should be cautious, if you’re looking for an antivirus that will not disturb your work and that will keep quiet because AVG is the vocal type. From time to time it pops-up all kinds of notifications. But, as an antivirus app it’s extremely efficient and its dashboard is user friendly.
- MalwareBytes Anti-Malware
This is a great anti-spyware and anti-malware program, but you should know that the free edition lacks real-time protection. MalwareBytes has a well deserved reputation for destroying spyware and malware that are usually overlooked by other programs. The free version is a sort of a short-term savior. You can get the Premium version for about $30 per year, though.
- Avast Free Antivirus
Even if this program is quite an old timer that has been protecting Windows from spyware and malware since the stone age of PCs, it is still one of the best. Avast Free Antivirus supplements the antivirus and anti-malware protection with a great password manager and also a home networking monitoring.
This software is destined only for experts as it gets very detailed reports on issues so you can diagnose the problems as accurately as possible. The software tells you what exactly is going on, and then it’s your job for interpreting results and taking action. This is the reason for which this software is appropriate only for experienced users.
