  1. If you are using Mac computer it don’t require any Antivirus, but still if you want to go for any security software on Mac. I will recommend Sophos, AVG, AVAST. There are other also available but these are best. You should also turn on the Firewall that can protect too. PLEASE DO NOT INSTALL MAC KEEPER on your Mac Book as its not at all good for Mac Machine.
  2. If you are using Windows Computer then you don’t have to worry as with Windows you have multiple options with you to get free good security software as compared to Mac as Windows Machines are now widely used all over the world and its also easy to use that is why people are opting for it. You can install AVAST for Complete One Year absolutely free by using your email id. After One Year you have to purchase AVAST but by changing your email id you can get license for another computer as License for AVAST takes your email id not the Mac Address of machine.
  3. You can also use AVG, Kaspersky, McAfee, iObit Malware Fighter, AVIRA.
  4. If you think and want that you do not need to pay any money for any Antivirus for your Windows Computer for the whole life. Then Hurray! You can get that too. You can install/activate/start Windows Defender/Windows Security Essentials on your machine. Before downloading it from external source first check that in system as Windows Security is always pre-installed.

If you’re not using any antivirus softwares in your laptop then;

Things to follow:

  • Use adblocker in browser(No sites excepted).
  • Most pop-ups should be blocked.
  • Find always the correct downloading button from malicious sites using inspect element.
  • Use task manager/registery editor well.
  • Learn how to use command line interface.

  • Check the startup for the process you find suspicious. The unwanted processes in the startup can be virus.
