Default Antivirus: Free Versus Shareware

Most people have heard of free antivirus software but maybe you are worried it is too good to be true? Do they really work? Can they be as good as paid antivirus programs? In short, yes you can get excellent free protection. These companies hope you will like their products and offer great deals on upgrades to their larger suites, typically complete internet security packages.

Free antivirus programs offer basic protection, scanning and removal. That said some of the best programs in detection and removal are shareware products. The free products tend to offer basic protection and not have all the features of a full featured internet security suite. Majorgeeks prides itself on freeware. The majority of software listed here is free but we do list shareware and for a good reason. Sometimes you get what you pay for.
