What’s the best antivirus software?
There are many antivirus programs available. So, this is a question we are often asked. Depending on the technician you ask, you may receive a large variety of answers. With time and experience, even our answer has changed.
As of writing this article, we recommend Malwarebytes anti-malware. In our experience, their solutions provide the best protection against viruses and other forms of malware. Even during our virus removal services, we use Malwarebytes, along with a few other tools, to perform scans and malware removal.
What’s the difference? Aren’t all antivirus programs doing the same thing?
While it’s true that all antivirus programs are created to do the same task – that is, to protect your computer from harmful software – not all anti-malware applications are created equal.
Developers of these programs have to create ways to identify malicious programs. In a constant fight against malware developers and hackers, anti-malware developers try to stay ahead of the threats. Due to the complexity of the programming involved, some applications are better at protecting your computer than others. On top of that, some applications have strengths and weaknesses in detecting certain types of viruses and other malware.
