    What is the best antivirus program out there?

    by askhrcopyeditor ·

    I’ve used McAfee in the past, but I started receiving a lot of spam immediately after registration. A bit hesitant about Kaspersky. What is the most secure antivirus for Windows 11?

      https://www.google.com/search?q=best+antivirus+2023 gives many different sites with different lists. So it’s up to you to determine what *you* find good enough for your situation for a reasonable price.

      After all, if you have no childs you don’t need advance parental control. And if you use gmail.com you don’t need integration with your pop3 mail client. And if you are happy with your current firewall, you don’t need an advanced firewall that you never will use.

      You might find a free antivirus is all you need. If that ain’t a reasonable price.

      Windows Defender works well for most and there is no additional cost.

      For Windows?

      I use what Windows came with (Defender) as I don’t run torrents or crack software.

      It’s been over a decade since I used anything else.

      That aside, and even then I haven’t used it on my PC in recent years there is MALWAREBYTES that tackles the odd things that other people install.

        Thumbs up to Malwarebytes and Windows Defender for me. I use both tools and they just work well.

      Best Antivirus Program for Windows 11.

      by SameekshaM ·

      In reply to What is the best antivirus program out there?

      Well, various antivirus programs are available on the internet for Windows 11. I use Bitdefender, as it comes with all security features and allows you to stay safe 100%. It is easy to use, compatible across various operating systems, and affordable. In addition, it can detect all major types of malware.

      The antivirus scanner performs 4 types of scans – quick scan, system scam, vulnerability scan, and custom scan. The full system scan takes around 1 hour. Meanwhile, you can schedule scans daily, weekly, or monthly.

      Some other alternatives to Bitdefender are:
      1. TotalAV Antivirus
      2. Norton Antivirus
      3. Surfshark Antivirus
      4. Avira Antivirus
      5. Malwarebytes

      There is no single antivirus that can be considered the most secure for Windows 11, as the security landscape is constantly evolving and different products have their strengths and weaknesses. However, there are several reputable antivirus programs that have been tested and proven effective in protecting against various types of malware and online threats.

      Some popular options include:

      Bitdefender: consistently rated as one of the top antivirus programs, with strong protection against malware, phishing, and other threats.

      Norton 360: provides a range of security features, including antivirus protection, VPN, firewall, and parental controls.

      Avast: offers free and paid antivirus solutions with features like behavior analysis and ransomware protection.

      Malwarebytes: specializes in detecting and removing malware, with a focus on zero-day threats and advanced malware.

      It’s important to note that no antivirus program can guarantee 100% protection, and it’s always recommended to practice safe browsing habits and use additional security measures like a VPN and two-factor authentication.
