Which Is The Best Free Anti-Virus? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

Last week we asked you if you think smartphones are getting too big for their own good. Despite the lack of consensus in the poll’s results, it seems like the majority of voters think smartphones are either too big or big enough as they are. In short, we probably don’t need even bigger smartphones!

Out of 521 readers who voted, 49% think smartphones are fine the way they are right now, but any bigger would be going too far, 32% think smartphones are already too big and that companies should start making smaller ones again, and 20% think that the bigger the better, and are willing to see even bigger smartphones than the ones we have today.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.


This week’s poll question is: Which Is The Best Free Anti-Virus?

If you’re a Windows user, chances are you have some kind of anti-virus software installed. There are many options when it comes to anti-virus and anti-malware programs, many of which also cost money, but some of which are completely free. We recently compared five popular free anti-virus choices, trying to find out which one is the best, but which is your favorite? Which free anti-virus is protecting your computer, or would have if you had to choose?
