Virus , Malware & Ransomware Protection
A few years ago our recommendation was Avast Free Antivirus but they have since added way too many features and keep trying to upsell new add-ons. A Combination of Malwarebytes paid version and Windows Defender that comes built in with Windows 10 should do a good job protecting the computer and your data.
We use Malwarebytes to clean up infected computers, and many of our clients already have it on their computer.
MalwareBytes 4.0 stops malware in real-time, before it can be a danger to your device. It also stops ransomware attacks before your data is held hostage. It also blocks infected websites that you might visit on accident.
It’s A great deal at $40/year per device and earns our #1 recommendation over other Antivirus Programs such as McAfee, Norton, Avast etc. Malwarebytes works best on Windows currently but can be used on Macs as well as mobile devices. The FREE versions don’t include any of the proactive protection necessary.
