Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2018
This product was recommended by Catherine Nichol from 10BabyThings
Kaspersky Security Cloud is the most awarded and most tested antivirus that doesn’t cost you a penny. I am recommending this antivirus as it helped me keep my important files protected from the malicious attacks of malware last year. It sends alerts when there is some suspicious attack or activity on your device. It is compatible with both android and iOS. The best thing about this antivirus is that it has passed PCMag’s phishing protection test in flying colors i.e. perfect score. You can buy it from Amazon or from the official website of Kaspersky Security Cloud.

This product was recommended by John Webster from Rugknots
Most security sellers offer a wide scope of items: an essential antivirus, a straightforward security suite, and an ‘extreme premium’ security suite with packaged additional items.

Avast Internet Security 2019
This product was recommended by Vince Fishbone from Kingpin Private Browser
With more than 400 million of users, Avast is the biggest antivirus company in terms of the number of protected devices (except Chinese companies). In 2016 Avast buys its rival AVG what significantly improves its detection abilities. The more users you have, the better your antivirus engine gets as every user acts as a separate detection point.

Likely speaking, the best antivirus for Windows 10 is Windows Defender Antivirus. While it got a bad reputation when starting out, it has since improved to be lightweight, free (+ pre-installed on Windows), and achieving 98 percent plus detection rates as of 2018 (which have only been improving since). While personal licensing does not permit large corporations, government entities, or academic institutions usage rights it is nevertheless likely the best antivirus for the regular personal Windows 10 user.
