VBA32
VBA32 provides comprehensive protection for workstation endpoints. The program uses both definition and behavior-based scanning methods to detect and remove threats in real-time and provides a command line environment for advanced administrators. This is a great choice for the enterprise market.

Clean Master
CleanMaster really impressed for its comprehensive junk-removal abilities. Even better, it’s surprisingly light on advertising. Recommended for anyone wanting to keep their Android running lean and fast.

Windows Defender
Windows Defender comes pre-installed on all PCs, and for a free antivirus, it’s not bad. It’s definitely not the best free antivirus (there are better), but it’s OK if you’re not doing anything important on your Windows machine. That said, it’s still a free antivirus. It doesn’t get updated often, doesn’t provide advanced protection against most malware threats, and has no accountability — you can’t complain to Microsoft if your PC gets hacked. I do not now and have never trusted Windows Defender to keep my computer secure. I recommend that most people don’t deal with the frustrations and risks of a free antivirus (especially one which comes pre-installed), and instead opt for a low-cost premium antivirus like Norton 360.

GO Security
GO Security offers reliable real-time virus protection, but its other features are only average. Despite calling itself a “booster,” junk removal is not included in the core download and support resources are mediocre.

ClamWin
Antivirus protection doesn’t have to cost a fortune (or anything at all!). ClamWin protects Windows machines using an open source engine. While bells and whistles are certainly lacking, it provides enough features (and an active enough user-base) to make this a viable solution for those with basic needs.

Lookout Security
Although it has some redeeming and well-designed remote lockdown features, Lookout’s virus-catching abilities are dubious. The lack of consistent benchmarks doesn’t inspire confidence. Those considering it should stick to the Premium version.
