  • Best Antivirus 2017?

    I been looking for a new antivirus since AVG has seem clunky lately for me. I have no clue in this field and when I look up best antiviruses for 2017 this is the list I get:

    McAfee AntiVirus Plus (2017)
    Symantec Norton AntiVirus Basic
    Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus
    Bitdefender Antivirus Plus
    Kaspersky Anti-Virus
    Avast Pro Antivirus 2017
    Emsisoft Anti-Malware 2017
    ESET NOD32 Antivirus 10
    F-Secure Anti-Virus (2017)
    Trend Micro Antivirus+ Security (2017)

    Are these the best or something else out there that is solid?

    Appreciate the help!

    None of the above.

    Microsoft's built-in AV (Windows Defender Antivirus) is good enough and doesn't have a history of introducing tons of additional issues. has some background info (he's a former Firefox dev who agrees with Chrome devs that AV software usually makes things worse, not better).

      Yeah that all I use is Windows Defender just be sure to keep it updated (Don't worry MS does a good job for you on this :| )

      Also best antivirus is to be smart on what you click!
      If you get at least the amount you put into it then go ahead. Otherwise I suggest you don't do it.

        I do a few things I use both maleware bites and adware cleaner with windows defender (all free). I also rarely get any type of viruses cause I turn on a adblocker and popup blocker if I'm on a sketch site.
