As 2013 draws to a close and 2014 been less than a month away, but for most of the antivirus industry it’s already here. As we are more than aware many of the leading Anti-Virus Manufacturers have “2014” in the name.

Lots of other AV big wigs have stopped using version and year numbers, but they’re still “(2014)” editions.

Picking a good Antivirus should not be a chore so as new versions arrive, most of the same products retain their positions at the top of the league table and below are the pick of the crop from the current of antivirus products.

  1. Webroot Secure Anywhere Antivirus (2014)
  2. Norton Antivirus (2014)
  3. Bitdefender Antivirus Plus (2014)
  4. McAfee Antivirus Plus 2014
  5. Trend Micro Titanium Antivirus+ 2014

After doing some further research into the top 5 products above we whittled it down to a top 3.

Three products for best overall antivirus are:

  1. Bitdefender Antivirus Plus (2014)
  2. Norton Antivirus (2014)
  3. Webroot Secure Anywhere Antivirus (2014)

With its impressive sweep of the independent labs, Kaspersky Anti-Virus (2014) is another very good choice.

We believe the best for a “free” option is the renowned AVG Antivirus Free 2014.

It shares the top score on hands-on malware blocking test with four others, among them Avira Free Antivirus (2014) and FortiClient 5.0 which is also free.

Whatever you’re antivirus needs, one of the many programs above should do the trick.
