Independent organization AV-Test regularly tests the most popular antivirus solutions on the market to determine the applications that provide maximum protection for users, their PCs and data. AV-Test specialists published the results of large-scale testing of antivirus software this year, its results are shown in the picture below.
Most programs provide comprehensive comprehensive protection, including free ones like Avast Free. However, for Windows 10 and Windows 11 users, there is no point in installing even such, since the built-in Windows Defender (Windows Defender) provides maximum comprehensive protection.
For the sake of fairness, it should be noted that 18 points out of 18 were scored by most of the tested antivirus packages, including well-known solutions from AVG, Avira, ESET, Kaspersky and McAfee.
