ANTIVIRUS vs. FREE ANTIVIRUS

Of course there is a difference – and there should be.
In this overview, I will try to show how little or how much difference there is to an antivirus program you have paid for – and a program that you do not pay for, but which is free.

Common to almost all antivirus programs is that they – virtually – all come in a free edition. It goes without saying that the manufacturers have taken some items out of the free version just to motivate you to buy the paid version.

I will try to show you what you get by purchasing the antivirus program – and at the same time also show you what you do not get by the free antivirus. At the same time, I will come up with my bid if you are sure to be sure just by using the free version.

On the right side, you can see a quick overview of the differences between paid antivirus and free antivirus.
