    After a week with Bitdefender free. His performance is unbelievably good. What a quick boot I've never seen with any other antivirus. I didn't see any freezing on my computer like it did a year ago, and it doesn't freeze when it updates. With several samples that I tasted, I found his signatures a little improved. Unbelievably good web protection. The only bad is the hi ram usage. . Very nice surprise to me the Bitfendender free. I'll keep it on my laptop for now. That's what I want from an antivirus. Light on Resources , no delays in applications and browsers , and very good protection for free antivirus :)

    I've been in MT since 2014.Since then we have almost every day the question of which is the best antivirus. The first thing you need to do to get good protection is to watch MT and learn to distinguish the dangers. Before I came to MT I wanted a format a week :) . Second we must understand that the virus does not come alone. We invite it . There really are users here at MT who do not need antivirus to stay safe. And you don't need to pay for expensive antivirus to stay safe. And if you pay , and you are happy clicker, and you download everything, again you get infection. Best pprotection is BRAIN ANTIVIRUS. :)

    Agree.
    In the process of acquiring wisdom, it is not uncommon to forget genuine knowledge. In the case of home users, I think it is rare to become an attack target and get infected. Most infections are acquired by mishandling. The attacker is just setting a trap to select mistakes. To put it roughly, I think all malice is fishhook bait. Security software is insurance against misuse, and learning about security is necessary to distinguish real bait from lures.

    Added
    Opera browser. Light with many good options.
    Wise care 365 pro. Not good like iobit but is very light.
    Eset online scaner. The top scaner for me.

    Kaspersky cloud free. the best I have tried at free version in the last 2 years. I had tried Kaspersky free but it was quite heavy with delays in applications. This version of 2020 is incredibly lightweight (with tweaks) And it has great protection. Even paid versions can't compare to Kaspersky cloud free. Anyone unable to pay for protection I recommend. 1 Kaspersky cloud free 2 Bitdefender free.

    Have you ever tried F-Secure Safe (free for me from my ISP)?
    Wonder how you think it compares to Kaspersky cloud free or Bitdefender free.

    I have not used Kaspersky free nor BD free but I have been using F-Secure for a very long time. F-Secure is very very light now (after they dropped BD engine and licensed Avira's). The product is very decent and does not include any useless bloat. I cannot compare it for I have not used the other option (at least extensively) but I do not think you should too. F-Secure offers great protection and does not slow down your PC and, more importantly, it is free in your case. I would definitely go with it. You can check F-Secure's result at MH.

    With corona virus I have time to try Avira Prime. I got the offer for 3 months from MT. Anyone who wants to take this offer will have attention. It will give youwith email the installer in Italian. Do not install because it does not change the language and is old version. Make the account only. After search on the browser Avira login. Log in and go to the license. There you download Avira Prime and it gives you the English installer and the new version. I was impressed with the GUI. Very nice after so many years with the old ugly GUI.
