Best anti-virus program?

Recommended Posts

Free? If you are running Windows 10, believe it or not...Windows Defender. You download it and the updates via Windows Update as it's part of Windows. For older versions of Windows, I think it was a part of Microsoft Security Essentials.

Paid? I'm recommending Webroot these days.

Oh, one thing about Webroot, it can get a little hyper. It sometimes has the mentality of "EVERYTHING IS A VIRUS!!! TROJANS ARE ALL THE THINGS!!!! DENY-DENY-DENY!!!!" LOL.

Man, does it do its job very well. Sometimes a little too much and you have to tell it to play nice with your software programs that are legit.

For example, I have a client that has a simple Terminal Program to access their Unix server. I double clicked on the installer and "Poof" Webroot shot it down. It was like a sharpshooter yelling "PULL!!" and shooting a Clay Target out of the sky. Only after temporarily disabling Webroot will it install. LOL!!
