Comprehensive List Of Free AntiVirus

Yesterday an unknown blog visitor emailed me, asking me for any other free anti-virus other than AVG.When people ask about FREE anti-virus, the name AVG will definitely be mentioned.

Probably I think the reason why AVG remains number 1 in free anti-virus is because when you search in Google for “free anti virus”, AVG is the first to appear. HE HE


Did you all know that there are actually more than 10 brands of free anti-virus?well there are more than 10 actually,but i thought to share the top five.


1.AVG ANTIVIRUS

I use AVG. For some reason, I am not confident that my pc is safe. It is best to be very careful about financial transaction.

I should say I've tried the free anti virus and got fed up with it. 'coz it's useless most of the times. Or may be that's what my experience is. Well, then I switched to Mcafee(through torrents) and was going good and now I'm using bitdefender 'coz I think, till now it's the best.
what do you think?
