Bitdefender is the top antivirus program. It offers a more comfortable user interface as well as better customer support. It also scored better in independent tests conducted by AV Test and AV Comparatives.
Webroot SecureAnywhere, unlike most antivirus software programs, is a cloud program that utilizes remote detection for device protection. It works by scanning files and comparing them to the cloud database for possible threats. This method has a small impact on PC performance and can be used with older hardware or software. Its security features include real-time threat detection, ransomware protection along with phishing and firewall capabilities.
Webroot’s dark user interface might not look as modern and sleek as the other alternatives, but it still is simple and intuitive to navigate. The main screen shows the status of your computer and lets you perform a Smart Scan, or a manual check. The left side rail has all the essential functions and utilities grouped into four broad categories.
The interface of Avast is contemporary and minimalist. Its main screen shows the current state of your PC and allows users to run a Smart Scan. All the major functions and utilities are grouped into four broad categories on the left rail, making it easy for novices to navigate.
Both companies provide excellent technical support and documentation resources. Avast has an online knowledge base that is searchable and has tutorials for various products. It also has an email form to contact customer service representatives. It does not provide live chat, as do many of its competitors.
