Best Free Antivirus Apps

First, a disclaimer. Free and best don’t always go hand-in-hand – especially when it comes to antivirus software. Most of the software packages on this list are designed as entry-level protection. They’re designed to entice users into buying the advance protections and manageability that comes with the fee-based software and services. For home users and small businesses on a budget, these free antivirus applications will provide “good enough” protection. For solution providers, these apps should be treated as “demo units.” The trick is up-selling once these packages are installed.
