    If you have a Natwest or RBS online bank account you can get free Malwarebytes (not AV). Combine that with any good free antivirus and you’re good to go.

    Mine by choice is Avast for AV and Malware scanning, I especially like the User interface as others can be not as user friendly and always prompting to upgrade etc. its free and not made in Russia or China 

    This applies to all RBS Group banks, so NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland and Ulster Bank.

    To add to this AV – Malware thread, there is a great wiki page below showing details of all the major AV players in the market and the features they do and do not provide for MAc’s – PC’s and Mobile devices etc.

    Malwarebytes is one the good malware tools out there; I have been using it for last 10 years to remove unwanted software from computers …. I prefer using offline version because real time version is aggressive on site while surfing web.

    I prefer Windows Defender as AV because it’s come preinstalled on Windows 8 or later devices…. in the past 5 years I have not gone back to any other third-party antivirus.

    combining Malwarebytes with uBlock Origin browser extension + Windows Defender + ASUS Ai Protection gives enough security without much compatibility issue, or issue with installing windows updates, falls positive software detection etc…

    I have used – Avast, Avira, Kaspersky, ESET, Symantec and McAfee in past none of them given me satisfaction

    AhnLab is not one I have seen before for the home user, looks like from there website they are based in South Korea so a friendly nation

    It is surprising how poorly the American AV / Malware products performs compared to European alternatives ? (talking rubbish I was)

    Avast rates in 2nd place according to your list, so I am still happy to use Avast

    Hey, it’s sorted alphabetically according to starting alphabet of the producer (Example – A to Z or Z to A). but you can customize it according to certification or categories -> performance, usability, and protection. (where six is the highest number AV can achieve in a particular category)
