Avira’s software is also extremely efficient, making it a great choice even for slower, older computers.
Technically, antivirus software only fights viruses. However, “antivirus software” can also be a broader term for software that fights lots of different types of malware.

I am a self confessed computer nut. I’m afraid there is no hope for me!
I agree that Defender alone is all that’s probably necessary, but my career has taught me to be overly cautious.
Probably wont matter what you install. I’ve never seen one that doesnt crash
If you need to add a file exclusion, or a whole directory exclusion, it’s easy to do (keep in mind this means Avast will not be protecting/scanning these files or folders) https/support.avast.com/en-ww/article/168/
Sorry if this was long and silly sounding, I’m antivirus ——–. I’ve tried a bunch of the “best” free ones, but they only say they found things and won’t do anything about them unless I pay. If I’m going to pay money, I want the best. Even if it’s expensive. As long as it’s the best, money is not an issue for me. Two top concerns are – finding ALL (or as much as any can) viruses and spyware, and speed. I just want to be able to catch them all as fast as I can when I do a scan. Like as if it’s The Flash as a virus Pokemon trainer.
Every search result from google brings up reviews claiming the same programs. Such as Avast, Norton, McAfee, etc. But any person I’ve personally asked who actually has or has had any of these tell me they are crap. Well, at least those three. So, I can’t trust any of those reviews or any reviews from those sites because it looks like they were bought off by those software companies to give them good reviews even though actual users of those software claim they are crap. So, what is a user tested, easy to use, no run arounds, no tricks to squeeze more money, actually finds ALL viruses and spyware that any other software can find, fast (don’t want to wait for hours long scans) type of antivirus program? Or am I hoping for a miracle program that doesn’t exist yet?
