- AVG antivirus 2015
AVG is a name that has been popular in the antivirus industry for a long time. They have a large community of users everywhere because it offers a free version with a lot of features. However, the basic antivirus is often just not enough, so you might end up upgrading to a paid version eventually. The user interface of AVG is very clean and easy to understand and use. The latest versions of AVG antivirus works well, but is by no means flawless.
AVG antivirus it is supported by all the Windows operating systems like Windows XP, Vista 7, 8.1, 8. The tech support of AVG is arguably not that good, but eventually, the solution will be provided to you by their tech guys. But it depends on how much time it takes, so your mileage may vary.
- Norton Security 2015 Antivirus
Norton Security is an old name in this industry and that’s the reason it has got so many customers over the years. (That and the fact that it comes included on many laptops or as part of software packages).
This year however, Norton has put out a pretty compelling product. The antivirus protection here is adequate, but sort of average in most of the areas compared to the previous antiviruses we mentioned. The UI has been reworked, making it more clear, modern and easy to use. Technical support is still confusing as it’s a bit expensive, but it’s better structured and overall, it looks nicer in many ways when compared with other products.
