Auslogics Antivirus 2013 review

Auslogics Antivirus 2013's features and performance make it comparable to big-name programs costing much more.

Comodo Internet Security review

Comodo Internet Security is Comodo's free antivirus suite. It packs an antivirus scanner and firewall, which are standard for AV suites, but also unique tools like an integrated sandbox environment and a desktop widget.

Pros

Virtualized sandbox: Not many antivirus scanners come with a sandbox environment for running unknown programs and Web sites, but Comodo Internet Security goes the extra mile by providing a virtualized environment that looks like Chrome OS. From the virtualized box, you can browse the Web using Comodo's own Dragon browser and not worry about programs making permanent changes to your system. Certain features … Read more

MacBooster review

MacBooster helps you increase the processing speed of your Mac by identifying duplicate files, finding and removing malware, and making it easier for you to uninstall unwanted applications. It's a useful but somewhat pricey solution.

Pros

Intuitive design: MacBooster features a clear layout and menus that are easy to navigate. The information buttons and help guide offer valuable assistance.

Useful uninstaller and startup optimizer: Two of the features we were especially impressed with were the app uninstaller, which lets you search for applications that you haven't used for a certain number of days, and the startup optimizer, which … Read more

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 Review

Kaspersky Anti-Virus is a proactive malware scanner and virus removal tool that protects your PC.

Pros

User interface: Here Kaspersky has maintained its uncluttered look and approachable interface, similar to that found in Kaspersky Internet Security. As with its other products, Kaspersky has stepped back from differentiating its product with an annual naming scheme, and the result is a consistent brand image that remains strong. Your main security status is front and center, with various tools and options tucked away in a drawer.

Security: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 performed a full scan on our test machine in under 15 minutes. According … Read more

G Data Antivirus Free review

G Data Antivirus Free doesn't excel in terms of interface and features but nevertheless proves to be a reliable security app, offering a super fast scanner and a good permissions manager. While it's ad-free, it includes in its main menu features that can only be used if you upgrade to G Data MobileSecurity 2, the app's older, wiser brother.

Pros

Super fast scanning: G Data Antivirus Free pleasantly surprised us with its system scanning speed. On a 16GB Nexus 7 it took only 15 seconds to scan the installed apps, and just 24 seconds to scan all … Read more

Antiy AVL Pro Antivirus & Security review

As the enhanced version of the award-winning AVL malware scanner for Android, Antiy AVL Pro Antivirus & Security introduces a potent but unstable App Scanner and a comprehensive App Analyzer that offers a deeper level of scanning than mainstream security apps, but lacks essential features like automatic startup and Web protection. In spite of its title, this beta-stage app is free.

Pros

State-of-the-art app scanner: Antiy AVL Pro Antivirus & Security scans app packages on multiple levels, providing all-inclusive APK/DEX binary/Opcode/Heuristic analysis for any app on your device, as well as the ability to uninstall apps and … Read more

Sophos Security And Antivirus review

Though it's freeware, Sophos Security And Antivirus packs up all the security features you need for your smartphone in an appealing interface, offering the same level of protection that many paid apps do. This is a great security suite.

Pros

Feature-packed: Sophos Security And Antivirus has it all, from a speedy scanner that can handle 3,436 files in around one minute, to a handy Privacy Advisor for quick app management, to Loss & Theft and Spam Protection, two features which are not offered for free but sold by many popular security apps.
