    Which is better antivirus software- free or licensed version?

    Do you want to know- which is better antivirus software- free or licensed version? If yes, just follow this link.

    I am using Kaspersky Antivirus, which is now inactive as its license expired. Will free software provide the same service as the licensed version does? What is the functional difference when one compares both types of software- free or paid / licensed?

  • Kaspersky is a very good antivirus for personal computers. But free antivirus has some limitations over licensed antivirus.
    Free antivirus does not provide full protection. It just able to scan the hard rives and external connected devices. Where licensed antivirus gives full protection like anti spam and malwar protection, firewall protection, Identifies suspicious websites and phishing websites, Detects new and unknown threats and mainly protect against all viruses.
    So always buy a licensed copy of antivirus. Quick heal, Kaspersky and net protector are good antiviruses.

    For paid antivirus Kaspersky is the best, I've been using it for more than 4 years. For free Microsoft Security Essentials is best for Windows. For Microsoft security essentials you need to have genuine Windows installed.

    Hope this helps..

    The free and licensed version of antivirus software is having various differences like in licensed version, you will have to pay a nominal fee to get the latest updated virus databases.
