If you are looking for a reliable, strong enough, low resource consumption but free antivirus solution, I will quickly recommend Avast and Avira, the free versions of course. Both long-time fame antivirus suites have become freebies and too popular among regular end-users. In case you can afford to purchase a premium antivirus suite, Norton, Bitdefender and Kaspersky are my three top choice. In addition to that, you can upgrade the two best free antivirus suites I mentioned above into the paid versions.
With security vendors, 2011 is probably the most whistling year in last few years since they all released the newer, better performance and more features version. Like many others security company, the Germany based giant GmbH & Co. KG has just rolled Avira 2012 version out which including Avira Free Antivirus 2012, Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 and Avira Internet Security 2012 for home users. In this occasion, you can get free 6 months Avira Internet Security 2012. Here are some simple steps.
Needless to say how important it is since today you are always under potential threats and unexpected dangers from virus on the Internet and via USB. Since the day I got free 6 months Norton Antivirus 2012, I have decided to use parallel Symantec product and Kaspersky Lab to enhance my security. I guess some of you might have the same way to protect your online business or simply get rid of trouble once your PC get infected.
I am not sure whether I will use… three premium antivirus suites on my low PC or not but I think getting free 6 months Avira Internet Security 2012 with no cost is really a good deal. That is why there is no reason to stop me from getting it and I think you too.
