These are alternatives to Microsoft Defender Anti-Virus that are free.
It's just an opinion and you may have other preferences. I have used Avast and AVG and they are pretty decent especially for free software. Microsoft Anti-Virus is very good at this point so I don't remove it or worry about it if somone has it and likes it.
I don't care for Norton anymore and I especially dislike McAfee but if somone is using them and they like it it's acceptable. I much prefer people use something they like and keep everything updated.
Good Anti-Virus. I have used this one.
Updates frequently (several time a day at times) but doesn't interfere with your work.
Ability to scan all files before bootup is useful. Now has an annoying tendency for pop-ups.
Several friends use this and I concur - good anti-virus software.
Another one several friends use. It's good but I prefer others. HOWEVER, can be useful on older computers as it is lighter on resources.
I find the firewall in Windows to be quite acceptable for most situations.
There are good aftermarket ones you may wish to try.
I used to use the ZoneLab firewall. In time it was renamed. It worked well when I used it but I haven't used ZoneAlarm. I expect it is fine.
Used this too but it has been some time now.
