THE BEST FREE ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE TO PROTECT THE PC
The title of this post is not correct, as I realized that the best antivirus there is not. The algorithms used are very advanced up to the use of heuristic algorithms to scan very well made. By now, all major software companies that create and update antivirus programs are progressed and the choice depends a lot from us. Certainly there are more bad software to be excluded. So there are a number of other best software around for virus protection. We are in 2011 and I will list those who are undoubtedly the most used and most efficient freeware virus protection.

Before listing, I explain what's a computer virus. A virus is a small program created especially by so-called hackers, with various features. A virus can take a specific name according to that for which it was created :

SPYWARE : these viruses are designed to be installed on PCs and "copying", storing them properly, sensitive data in your hard drive. It 's so that those have current account data on your computer, can be seen the account emptied.

BACKDOOR : a type of virus that sets himself the task of putting in touch our computer with hacker  computer. The attacker then gets full control of the infected PC and can do whatever he wants. The connection, of course, is so invisible and we do not notice anything.

But the list is endless as there are all types of malware as various troyan, rootkits, etc. ... It's good to say that rootkits are programs designed to hide certain processes on your PC. There is therefore said that they can hide but may contain viruses in some cases. In fact because of their characteristic hide processes, some malware exploiting them.

As mentioned, the list of viruses is endless. Where can they hide these viruses ?
  1. Through pictures and images that are downloaded or attached to email.
  2. In executable programs (.exe).
  3. In various links on the web.
But we now see the list, describing the main features which the best free software for effective protection against viruses. Among the four that I will list, there is one that has not a freeware version (ESET NOD 32) but you believe me, it is exceptional.
