When it comes to secure system/PC from the Virus, Trojan, Malware, etc., which ever not acceptable to PC health, I have seen many people using their Brain more than the system resources. I mean to say, they either go for installing more than 1 antivirus or install so many fake antivirus tools that affects PC very badly. The result of this the slowing down of system.
So, which is the best Anti-virus in queue of so many Anti-virus ?
Who or Which company is providing the rating of Anti-Virus Software ?
Above two questions are quite useful while protecting the PC from wrong things.
Lets start with Who/Which company is providing the Rating –

Best Antivirus Software for Windows PC:
Now you can judge by yourself which is the best one I am indicating, Yes it is the Best of all, it is “Microsoft Security Essentials“. The reason behind calling it the best is that its a FREE anti-virus software and moreover as this test was based only on the malware detection and there was no rating of speed and stability, let me tell you one thing just give it a try and feel the CHANGE. It is not not only light on the system resources, at the same time its user interface is also very friendly, as friendly as a 4-5 year child can also operate.
Coming to eScan and Symantec , both are paid and you may be knowing the advantage of using them !
Here is the link to download the Microsoft Security Essentials and dont forget to update the MSE after installation.
