What are some basic antivirus software, other than Windows Defender and Microsoft Security Essentials?
You'd be pretty naked without those other features in today's threatscape. Is there a reason why you'd eschew having that add'l protection?Referring to a basic Antivirus, I am not looking for advanced features like Web Protection, Sandboxing, Proactive Zero-day Protection (HIPS/BB).
Avira is what you're looking for. Very simple signature based AV.
avira is really goodAvira is what you're looking for. Very simple signature based AV.
Avast can be a choice as you can customize the installation (install only file shield and uncheck deepscreen)
AVG is also a good choice as the free version offers good signatures and behavior blocker.
Avira Free is nothing but a basic scanner... (too much bandwidth for some)
