Windows

Antivirus programs

An antivirus program is mostly used as a preventative measure. Their main purpose is to stop your computer from getting infected. They are typically fairly good at removing infections as well, but will sometimes need a little bit of extra help for that, programs to help remove an infection are referred to as Malware removers and will be covered further down on this page. Many antivirus programs will offer basic features for free, but also have a more robust paid option

  1. FREE ANTIVIRUS
    1. Microsoft Security Essentials (this comes pre-installed on Windows 8 & 8.1)
    2. Avast Antivirus
    3. AVG Free
