Adaware Total Security has really impressive features. Its price means it’s also good value for a large install base. Recommended!
FortiClient boasts more than enough features to serve as a functional and self-standing internet security solution independent of an Enterprise Management Server (EMS). Not only that, but I was impressed by its ease of use and functionality.

Comodo produces some extremely capable antivirus and internet security tools for both free and paid users. There’s much more to these tools than nicely designed menus, and – besides the gamer mode – I was impressed by the platform’s seamless sandboxing and powerful features.
$30.00 - $75.00 / year
Quick Heal Total Security complements multi-faceted scanning options with some exceptional internet security tools. Its support is outstanding and it’s also a good deal.
$14.99 - $26.99 / year
360 Total Security
You may not know that this antivirus protection uses the Avira and BitDefender engines—along with plenty of additional tools of its own. The basic solution is totally free and the only downside I could identify was the limited support options.
$29.00 - $299.00 / year
F-Prot does one thing really well: protecting your computer against viruses. Although it’s missing internet security and zero-day capabilities, I thought that its competitive pricing, lightning-fast user interface, and stellar virus-hunting credentials make it a worthwhile purchase.
$8.99 - $39.99 / year
NANO Antivirus Pro combines a slick user interface with lots of great, detailed customization options. Combine this with powerful antivirus protection, and you’ve got yourself a solid product. There aren’t as many features here as there are with other top antiviruses like Norton 360 or Kaspersky, but for the price, NANO Antivirus Pro is a great deal.
$14.00 - $28.00 / year
For a very low annual subscription price, REVE provides real-time antivirus protection with several scan types and a decent reporting module. The powerful anti-theft protection can be triggered by a trusted number or the online dashboard. Support is also extremely responsive. I don’t think it’s better than something more established than Norton or Bitdefender, and it leaves a lot to be desired in terms of features, but it’s still a decent antivirus.
$29.95 - $49.95 / year
The world’s first antivirus software still offers plenty of bang for the buck, including an enormous array of scanning options and some great bells and whistles in Internet Security.
Immunet doesn’t provide show-stopping antivirus capabilities, but it does offer a basic level of protection that can be expected for the price (nothing). It’s exceptionally lightweight and includes some nice cloud-based malware detection technology.
