Laptop users need a sophisticated antivirus program that helps keep their computers running, protects themselves from malware attacks, and protect their personal information and online identities. The best-paid antivirus suites provides many features to manage security on mobile devices, monitor a computer’s firewall, and protect children online, plus software updates, and other features. But some users just do not want or cannot afford to pay an annual subscription for these extra features.

Bitdefender, however, remains the best option to “fix it and forget it”. After installation, it takes care of itself and requires no user intervention. If you need to install antivirus software on your grandparents’ computer but you do not have time to control it, this may be the ideal solution.

The products of Kaspersky and Bitdefender offer only the essentials. If you want features such as a password manager or a stronger web browser, which is usually found in mid-priced premium antivirus suites, then Avast Free Antivirus might be right for you. However, its protection against malware is not as effective as that of the first two and its impact on performance is heavier.

Kaspersky Free Antivirus

Kaspersky Lab does not announce the presence of a free antivirus product and does not facilitate the search of the download page. Too bad, because it is one of the best free antivirus products we have ever tested, with a simple but understandable interface, a slight to moderate impact on system performance and the unbeatable protection of Kaspersky’s malware. The only reason we do not give Kaspersky Free Antivirus a score of 4.5 / 5 is that it does not offer any additional functionality.

Bitdefender Antivirus

Like Kaspersky, Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition offers only basics, and its protection against malware is just as good, even if it is a little more exposed to false positive malware detections. Its scans are lighter on the system than Kaspersky’s, but it offers fewer options – you cannot even schedule an analysis. It is best for users who are looking for an unstable security solution for themselves or a loved one.

Avast Antivirus Free

Avast Free Antivirus malware protection is a top-level key, but offers the best assortment of additional bonuses for a free antivirus program, including a password manager, enhanced browser, and network scanner. The program is also highly customizable and offers limited access to Avast’s VPN service. However, this resulted in a rather heavy system load during our tests.

Microsoft Windows Defender

Microsoft’s window defender software has finally reached the big leagues. Windows Defender does not outperform Bitdefender or Kaspersky in malware protection, but it stands apart from other free antivirus products while offering limited impact on system performance and a surprising number of additional features, including parental controls and protection for all browsers. For the first time, we can recommend the use of Windows Defender as the main antivirus solution.

AVG AntiVirus Free

AVG shares Avast’s unscrupulous malware detection engine, while having a much smaller impact on system performance. However, AVG AntiVirus Free has far fewer useful features than Avast Free Antivirus. The good news is that AVG’s wide range of customization options and file shredder are still available; The bad news is that there is no compelling reason to choose AVG over Windows Defender.

Avira Free Antivirus

Avira Free Antivirus was one of the top notch antivirus solution a while ago, before Kaspersky and Bitdefender showed up and AVG, Avast and Windows Defender improved their game. Avira’s malware protection is now in the center of the pack. Its many additional features are mostly teasing for paid services, and its impact on system performance is remarkably heavy. We act as if it still has a wide range of customization options.

Free Antivirus Panda

Panda does not participate in all the lab tests we use the results. Its protection against malware is a bit of an enigma. We appreciated the high degree of customization options of Panda Free Antivirus and its attractive interface. We did not like the constant announcements of other Panda products, attempts to hijack your web browser and the fact that, unlike all other antivirus companies, Panda will not let you choose not to automatically collect system data.
