Free Microsoft Windows Security Softwares
1. Avast Antivirus:
Avast is one of the best anti virus out there. It’s light, fast and quite secure. And it is free for home users!
In Avast’s case, free does not mean crippled! It has all the features that you need and there are no banners that push you to buy a pro suite. It can scan whole computer, do a quick scan of system files, scan a removable disk and also a single folder.
If a virus is found, it plays a sound alert to let you know and puts it in quarantine.
In real time, it scans file system, HTTP traffic, mail and IM traffic. If anything suspicious is found, it stops the traffic and tells you.
It also features Sandboxing which allows you to execute any suspicious programs in their own small playground. Overall, it’s a great Microsoft windows security suite.
2. Comodo Personal Firewall:
Comodo’s Firewall is the best free firewall. While not so light on resources, it is a great companion for Avast and covers internet threats well.
Along with firewall, it also has a great feature called Defense+ which asks you every time a program tries to modify or execute a protected program, it notifies you and asks what to do. While this may sound a bit geeky (it is!) and sometimes, can get on your nerves, it is very useful and makes sure that you are protected from any malware.
When you install Comodo though, it will ask to install antivirus too which you should skip as it is not as good as Avast for microsoft windows security.
