    VIPRE Antivirus 2015

    With very few shortcomings, VIPRE earns our "Editor's Choice Award" again this year for outstanding performance, best technical support, and best value.

    Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015

    BitDefender may not be as well known as McAfee or Norton, but it continues to earn top awards in virus protection for good reason.

    Aside from a strong antivirus engine, BitDefender has improved its technical support over the last two years, but still not enough for our liking.

    Kaspersky Anti-Virus Software 2015

    There's no question some parts of Kaspersky's overall usability aren't as polished as some competitors, but Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 is strong as ever when it comes to solid, antivirus protection.

    AVG Anti-Virus Software 2015

    AVG has built their reputation on solid, free antivirus software for some years now. It's always been a good "go to" software for a lot of consumers to try out when they thought they might have a virus infection.

    avast Pro Antivirus 2014

    Avast Pro Antivirus 2014 stacks up well against the competition with some good antivirus and spyware protection this year.

    Despite the good parts, there are some things that aren't ideal. For one, virus removal could be better, as could its antiphishing...

    Norton Antivirus Software 2014

    Recent years haven't always been kind to Norton, with it getting a reputation for slowing down PCs. We're glad to see with the 2014 version the days of bloat are gone, and it's once again back to being among the best antivirus software out there, particularly against new threats.

    We were worried when Trend added the word "Titanium" to its name. Why? Often when a company does something like that, we find there's nothing there. That's not the case here. For 2015...

    Panda Antivirus Pro 2015

    Not so long ago, Panda was one of our favorite products. It offered top-notch protection and features no one else did.

    About the same time competitors began catching up with Panda's features, it started slipping elsewhere.

    McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2015

    Like Norton, McAfee is one of best-known and most popular PC security products.

    The problem: despite their size as a company, McAfee's software doesn't make the grade anymore. The common complaints that it's slow and bloated are, sadly, true.
