As a member of this group for some time, I’ve seen numerous posts asking which are the best Antimalware/Antivirus. Following are some resources :

# FREE :

* **Windows Defender :** Is free and is becoming better day by day. It also doesn’t use much system resources. When [configured](https://github.com/AndyFul/ConfigureDefender) correctly, it can [block most if not, all threats](https://youtu.be/N4Vex7l8jv4).
* [Bitdefender Free :](https://www.bitdefender.com/solutions/free.html) A free and powerful AV from a reputable company.
* [Kaspersky Security Cloud Free :](https://www.kaspersky.com/free-cloud-antivirus) A free AV from Kaspersky.

# PAID :

* [Kaspersky](https://www.kaspersky.com/) **:** Kaspersky Security Cloud Free + Extra features.
