      There’s no unique list everybody agrees about. Different lists give different rankings. But I’d say that all are good, although some are slightly better than other. But since you didn’t ask for the best, you might not find that important.

      A few links to help you decide:
      https://www.cnet.com/tech/services-and-software/best-antivirus/
      https://www.techradar.com/best/best-antivirus
      https://www.pcmag.com/picks/the-best-antivirus-protection
      https://www.av-test.org/en/antivirus/home-windows/

      And there are people saying the best antivirus is YOU, since YOU know what not to do (like: click on unknown links in e-mails, download pirated software, visit shady sides).

      Hard to say

      Take your pick. I don’t know if you are using Windows or a Mac computer. There is no single application/program that is the absolute best, we all have opinions.

      Define good?

      Almost all are fine except for the few startups that are just too new at this.

      However I want to mention that we remain the best defense. Once in a while someone will post “NorAffee didn’t catch the trojan in the Photoshop I downloaded from a TORRENT!!! NorAffee is NO GOOD!!!”

      I hope you can see the problem with that. Downloading cracked software and expecting your antivirus to protect your PC?
