There are a lot of powerful security tools on the market, and some of them come with a hefty price tag to match. While I can’t agree that this software is the “most advanced security suite” ever built, I can strongly recommend Heimdal Security’s Thor Premium Home for its next-generation detection capabilities.

I tested two of Zone Alarm’s leading Windows antivirus and internet security options and give both products an unreserved thumbs–up. The firewall and definition updating tools are outstanding (historical bit of information – Check Point invented the technology!), and the list of features in both products is so long that it would take a hacking prodigy to outsmart their cybersecurity protection features.

UPDATE: When Google and Mozilla removed AVG’s web extension from their stores, a scandal broke out which revealed that Avast (who also owns AVG) had allegedly been spying on their users’ browsing data and selling it to corporations for millions of dollars in profit. In light of these unethical practices, we can no longer recommend them on our site. You can read more about the controversy and our decision here. For a review of antivirus companies we do recommend, please see this list of the 10 best antiviruses of 2023. Original Review: AVG is a nice antivirus if you’re using the free version. It offers good protection for no money. AVG gives you excellent security tools for free, and it even has a lot of features to help your computer’s performance. It consistently scores high marks in our tests, and its free version is relatively secure. But the paid version just doesn’t offer enough, unlike many other premium antiviruses like Norton 360 and Bitdefender. If you know that you need premium protection, skip over AVG.
