What Antivirus should I get for my computer?

Its a common question – what antivirus should I get for my computer? That’s a good question – here is my recommended list:

 

  1. If it’s Windows 7 – get Microsoft Security Essentials!
  2. If it’s Windows 8 – don’t worry. Windows Defender should be good enough!
  3. If it’s Windows XP – get AVG Antivirus!
  4. If it’s Linux Distribution – get Clam Antivirus!
  5. If it’s OSX – get ClamXav!
