Every year, there are numerous studies on the effectiveness of security solutions found in the market. Like every year, their number has increased, and many of them are not cheap at all. When it comes to anti-virus, however, the acquisition value is far from dictating the degree of efficiency. A new study has confirmed that the best antivirus in 2018 is not a classic solution like those offered by McAfee, Norton or Kaspersky.
For most infections that you may be experiencing at the moment, if you are a PC user, the best option is to stay with Windows Defender. The free Microsoft security solution pre-installed on each Windows 10 system was classified as the best antivirus in 2018 by AV-Test, AV-Comparatives, Ars Technica and PC Mag.
Aside from a good antivirus, however, to keep your system safe, you might want to turn to Malwarebytes. Available for free, the software is available for both PC and Mac users.
There is also a cost-plus option, but it comes with a permanent monitoring module for your PC activity. Otherwise, you will have the same level of efficiency in disinfection.
