    Paid antivirus or free?

    My main PC uses a paid antivirus program. For my next computer, I was wondering if you can just install a free version instead. Which one is enough for basic needs?

    Thanks!

    Free Antivirus programs never work. Get upgraded theres a few virus protection programs out there. The list goes on just head over to amazon you'll find them very affordable too

    The free versions are hardly ever any good, go for a paid version, they don't really cost much.

    I think free antivirus software usually provides a bare minimum level of protection. But Paid antivirus Software also provide a max level of protection and safety from malware and other virus detection. So i like Paid version..

    According to me, Paid Version of Antivirus Software is best for the Computrs/Laptops. It (Paid Version) gives more security features and have many advantages.

    I am using an Avast anti-virus for my PC, over and above they have also introduced their new VPN goes with the name Avast Secureline VPN. Quite satisfied with the service from both the products. I am at peace now even when I am working on a public wifi and doing banking transactions.

    Moreover, I would not recommend going for a free software for anything. They hardly do the job. On the front we see it is working, but that is all show and no results. Saying this on my experience.
