Today, there are many free antivirus programs which you can use on your computer. Competition in this field is high and these companies fight for potential customers which will (hopefully) use their upgraded software version/s.



AVAST and AVG where the best antivirus (in my opinion) a few years ago, and they still have a large user database.



I would recommend you to use a BitDefender Free antivirus which works amazingly well:



1. It is extremely fast and does not bother you with ads and pop-up windows;

2. It is completely free and updates daily;

3. It has probably the fastest virus scanning engine on the market, especially when it comes to free antiviruses.



At least you can try it and see how it works - I am sure you will be satisfied.
