Best Free Antivirus of 2015 covers the best free antivirus software of 2015. Although, the latest Windows 10 version has a built-in antivirus, it just doesn’t do a good job. There are commercial versions, but why pay if the free versions are good enough. In my experience, I usually end up using several free antivirus tools to get rid of viruses and malware. Here’s the list based on rankings:

  1. Panda Antivirus
  2. Bit Defender
  3. MalwareBytes
  4. Ad-Aware
  5. Avast
  6. AVG
  7. Qihoo
  8. Comodo
  9. Forticlient

I use Avast, MalwareBytes, and Ad-Aware to clean up my PC. What’s your favorite?

They have been exploited by hackers again and again. Google shouldn’t stop there. Google should work on blocking Javascript popups next. The most annoying one is JQuery modal overlays which are used for displaying ads, registrations, sign ups, and short videos.
