AVG Free: widespread free solution, but …
AVG is one of the most popular free antivirus. It is interesting, but it only protects you from viruses and spyware.

This means among other things that it does not include a firewall. You tell us: “And the Microsoft firewall then?”. Well it’s a basic firewall, a lot less efficient than those included in the comprehensive solutions according to security experts. Except with Windows 8 and Windows 10 where these tools are more comprehensive than previous versions.

Another disadvantage is that often blocks “fake” virus, which is annoying in the long run.

Compatibility:
– Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8.
– Mac OS X 10.8 or newer +.
– + Android 2.2 or newer.

The solutions of Internet Providers
As for the solutions offered by Internet service providers (Videotron, Bell, Rogers, Cogeco, etc.), their price is often higher than that of a protection suite from another company and not necessarily more efficient.

In addition, some solutions are not complete and do not contain a virus. We must linger to the specificities of each offer to find out whether they are complete or not.

Antivirus for Mac
Many still believe that Mac does not need security software or antivirus … It is true that a Mac can host Windows virus without it does not affect its working. By cons, some files transferred from PC to Mac desktop from home and here, we just infect your PC!

As the Apple software (iTunes, AppStore, QuickTime, etc.) are on almost every machine (Mac or PC), it is tempting for hackers trying to find security holes in the software. More popular software is, the more attack will have a big impact.

The goal of the hacker is often to reach as many people as possible. More and more people use Macs, it becomes interesting for a cyberattaquant to target this group. Trojans, Trojans, worms, spyware, phishing, we found more and more on the Mac, though popular belief suggests that a Mac can not be infected with a virus. Moreover, all security software mentioned above now offer a Mac version, something that was rare a few years ago.
