**Why do I need antivirus protection for my computer?**

According to reliable statistics, there is a malware attack every 39 seconds. According to SonicWall, the global malware volume hit 10 billion last year. Similarly, 187.7 million ransomware attacks, 40.8 million web app attacks and 4 trillion intrusion attempts were also recorded last year.

According to Forbes, the cybercrime damages will cost the world a whopping $6 trillion a year by 2021.

So it’s critical to have reliable antivirus protection if you want to keep your computer and other internet-capable devices free from malicious programs and hackers.

**What’s the difference between premium & free antivirus products?**

Premium products come with a slew of advanced features and utilities that you won’t get with a freeware. These include a file shredder, multi-layered ransomware protection and web protection, a full-fledged password manager, a useful system optimizer, parental controls, encrypted storage, a VPN utility, and more.

The free versions aren’t as sophisticated as the premium ones when it comes to anti-malware protection. But most free solutions out there do offer a bare minimum level of antivirus coverage.

    What about Eset Nod32?

  8. Kay Urbach on December 4, 2020 at 5:29 pm

    Save your time. Stopped watching at Norton on #3. Skimmed to McAfee on #2. I will always stay away from them.

  9. Peter ama Goch on December 4, 2020 at 5:29 pm

    Everytime i used a different antivirus, i found myself going back to Eset Smart Security. For more than a decade now

  10. RatchetMinor on December 4, 2020 at 5:33 pm

    Been using Avira for years now, and thinking about switching. Does Bitdefender slow down the PC?

  11. Boban Dozudic on December 4, 2020 at 5:33 pm

    From my own personal experience, these paid anti virus products are not invulnerable to being successfully hacked. I had an account with Bitdefender that was compromised via a hacked Bitdefender server. My account details listed someone else as the owner, most likely an alias with an email that wasn’t mine. In addition my hard disk was wiped by the attacker. When I contacted Bitdefender, they were not willing to offer any information as to what occurred. I had to change all my passwords to my sensitive accounts and reconstruct my computer data. The lesson learned, don’t trust any of these products to protect you. YOU, and how you use the internet are the ultimate front line defense against cyber attacks. I have now set up VLANS and keep all unknown traffic off my home network. I only visit websites I trust with my home network and don’t open attachments from unknown unsolicited emails or click on to links I’m not familiar with. I have also set up very strong passwords for my sensitive accounts and even with those will be changing them periodically. Sure it’s a lot of work and not much fun. But fixing the problems created resulting from an attack is much more work and a lot less fun.

    Norton and Mcafee suck, they are the worst pos software even invented. Avoid those at all costs.

  16. DH on December 4, 2020 at 5:40 pm

    AV Test also has the latest version of Microsoft Defender 4.18 with perfect scores of 6/6/6, and it’s free and built into Windows PC’s.

  17. amirmohammad adabifard on December 4, 2020 at 5:41 pm

    You just advertised BitDefender, it was a very useless video *_*

  18. hasitha perera on December 4, 2020 at 5:42 pm

  22. sebastian on December 4, 2020 at 5:45 pm

    here is the awnser to the best antivirus:

    there is no best antivirus.

  23. The TexPat in Saigon on December 4, 2020 at 5:45 pm

    An anti-virus software for Win10 should reformat your hard drive.

  24. ET Himself on December 4, 2020 at 5:47 pm

    I always buy my security at local computer outlets. The software is always on sale for about $20.00/year. 3-4 months ago I picked up Bitdefender Internet Security for $25.00 – A 2 year subscription.

  25. Danyer Martinez on December 4, 2020 at 5:48 pm

    Nothing is free, if something is free you are the product.

  26. Sarp Özgenç on December 4, 2020 at 5:48 pm

    12:43 you can close the video.

  27. Junior Moodie on December 4, 2020 at 5:49 pm

    I have been using Eset for well over 10 years on my Desktop, Laptop and phone an i never encountered any problem whatsoever.

  28. Thommadura on December 4, 2020 at 5:50 pm

    DO NOT BUY BITDEFENDER – it is Madening – everytime it detects something it sends out a notification – often MULTIPLE notification that Stop your computer until you close the notification and there is NO WAY TO TURN this nonsense off. I have times when I get 10 notifications in a minute making MY computer useless with this installed. While they tell you how to disable the many notifications they use to try to sell you more of their products and it works sometimes – it does nothing about the notifications for other things and it is worse than spam that takes over your computer – which is ALL IT IS.

  29. Ben Prater on December 4, 2020 at 5:50 pm

    POV you delete avast and came here to see if you were wrong

  30. sharkodamns on December 4, 2020 at 5:51 pm

    Thx so much i noticed someone was watching me through my webcam

  31. Darth Raziel on December 4, 2020 at 5:51 pm

    Honestly, i would say Windows Defender is better than the 3rd party free tools.
    Saying this as someone who works in the cybersecurity space himself, and defender Advanced Threat Protection is a far more complete solution, and a level above everything mentioned here.

  32. First on December 4, 2020 at 5:51 pm

    Just a note when you get infected:
    That’s not the malware,

    McAfee is the malware

  33. Кубик on December 4, 2020 at 5:52 pm

    360 total security free contains Kunpeng and Avira as a motor (need to download)

  34. Murtaza Salih on December 4, 2020 at 5:53 pm

    IObit Malware Fighter is the best

  35. Drew CI on December 4, 2020 at 5:55 pm

    The best security for 10 is what comes with/in it, which is excellent, free & On by default. DO NOT USE ANYTHING ELSE❗

  36. DH on December 4, 2020 at 5:58 pm

    The best thing you can do is not surf as administrator. I learned that the hard way.

  37. A E on December 4, 2020 at 5:59 pm

    So glad AVG wasnt on this list, I would have hit dislike and not even finished watching video

  38. Michael Geller on December 4, 2020 at 6:02 pm

    Never use Avira, all infected pcs have Avira on it.

    I keep getting a virus pop up saying secure search from mcaffe

  41. Captain Tobias on December 4, 2020 at 6:05 pm

    The best anti-virus software for Windows 10 or any version of Windows for that matter is Linux.

  42. Cherie Jones on December 4, 2020 at 6:05 pm

    Currently use the Avast with all bells & whistles and have been totally frustrated with assorted issues. Want to try the Bitdefender Total Security Suite. Do I remove the Avast BEFORE or AFTER downloading Bitdefender? This was an excellent presentation!

  43. Carter Bella on December 4, 2020 at 6:05 pm

    1: Why did you feature Kaspersky as 4th it isn’t that good

    2: I have AVG free with a shredder which is useless cause I have file shredder

    3: I USE AVG FREE and you don’t feature it

  44. na ni on December 4, 2020 at 6:05 pm

    Hi, is kaspersky internet security good enough for protection? Or is it worth to spend more to get the total security?

  45. Myke Sutherland on December 4, 2020 at 6:07 pm

    Have You Tried LavaSoft Adaware And Spybot Search And Destroy?

  46. banjoboy1941 on December 4, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    Windows Defender which is included in Windows 10 is all you need. It is not a resource hog and you hardly know it’s there. Having been a Malware expert for over ten years I find that attacks by viruses is almost non-existent. There is no profit in infecting your computer. The real money is in ransomware where they can lock your files and demand payment to release them.

  47. James Edwards on December 4, 2020 at 6:14 pm

    Why didn’t you talk about windows 10 security suite. I think it’s called Microsoft Windows Defender?

  48. Thomas Andrews on December 4, 2020 at 6:14 pm

    bitdefender free
    does not consume resources ?? joke….. 500 mb ram usage in the task manager while kaspersky 100 max
