The Best Free PC Antivirus Programs for 2013

Every new year comes with new security threats and viruses. As the new year has arrived, people are looking for the next best Free PC Antivirus Solution. Here is a review of the free antivirus applications for Microsoft Windows that are recommended by the industry experts.

In general, these programs can be used at home and are complete, effective and efficient. In fact some are more efficient than those that cost money. In most cases you just need to sign up for the free license.

The best free antivirus programs are:

  • 1. Avast Home
  • 2. AVG Antivirus System Free Edition
  • 3. Avira AntiVir Personal
  • 4. PC Tools AntiVirus Free Edition
  • 5. BitDefender Free Edition
  • 6. McAfee VirusScan Plus AOL Edition
  • 7. Norton Security Scan

Why Avast Home was chosen as the best free antivirus application?

This anti-virus software is always kept up to date, and has modules that control email, instant messaging, Web, P2P networks, etc.. It is also excellent for home computers - in fact, the free license is limited to households because it consumes very few resources. Their minimum requirements are 64 MB of RAM and 50 MB of disk space. It is available for operating systems Win95/98/98SE/Me/2000/NT/XP/Vista. It is Available in many other languages as well.

Option 2: AVG Antivirus

The AVG Antivirus is another great free antivirus. It is the choice for those seeking simplicity, speed and low computer resource usage. It's simple to use, perhaps easier than Avast Home, it is constantly updated and no registration is required. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come in many languages yet and is only available for Windows XP and Vista operating systems.

Another good free antivirus: Avira AntiVir Personal

Antivirus is fast and protects well against viruses of all kinds. It is not quite complete, but it is extremely efficient for slow computers. Only available for Windows 2000, XP and Vista. It also has a version for UNIX / Linux: FreeBSD, OpenBSD and Solaris.

Final conclusions

Please remember to never have more then one antivirus program installed on your computer as it may override the operation of both and bring instability to the system.

We hope that this review provides a clearer picture of which anti-virus software could best suit your personal computer needs.
