Let's check to see if we've a new winner compared to previous years

2020 Winner - Windows Defender
2018 Winner - Kaspersky Free Antivirus
2017 Winner - Avast Free Antivirus
2015 Winner - Qihoo Total Security

By the way we wont have a Paid Antivirus Suite of the Year poll this time, it's better to do it triennaly (like we did in previous years). :D These standings hardly change

I vote Avast free for best all round features that Kaspersy free lacks viz bank mode for banking. shopping , outward firewall , hardened mode , wi-fi protection & gives much better protection for newbies and average users against their most common problems viz browser hijacks , pups, malicious websites and adware , it also lightweight , fast and provides good all round protection .

I voted for BitDefender but meant to vote for Kaspersky due to my fat fingers and laggy phone under 20% accidentally selected BD.

Hopefully Kaspersky doesn't get beat by one vote 🙂.
Your vote may have been valuable to Kaspersky.🏎️🏎️
