Hard to answer

In reply to: What would you recommend as the best antivirus?

I herd about Bitdefender and been thinking of going with it myself. Never herd of Phoenix 360.

Here is what I have had and tried.
Norton had years ago and it was a resource hog and would slow your computer down.
(herd it has improved)
Kaspersky tried it a few years ago and it was hard to navigate and get setup and had gotten viruses.
(Not Sure About today)

Now finally the one I have been using for the past 5-6 years.
Trend Micro: Works wonderful have not had any major problems while running Trend Micro great security and very easy to navigate.
Now the thing I do not like is it marks some windows store stuff as a virus so you have to go in and add the windows store folder as an exception. Other then that its a great Anti-Virus.

I haven't tried Webroot antivirus but I have read its review here

I really liked what I read, the part that it's really compact and resource-friendly, I do game a lot so I'm trying to find software that wouldn't eat up resources that much. If anybody used it pls comment, thanks.

Antiviruses

In reply to: What would you recommend as the best antivirus?

If you have windows 10 then your machine has it is own default antivirus that is Windows defender and it is one of the best antiviruses. if you want another one or you do not have windows 10 then you need to decide would you like to go for a paid or free version of antivirus.

Best free Antiviruses are AVG and Kaspersky
Best paid Antiviruses are Norton and Bull guard
