Antivirus Performance Comparison

These viruses can do many things, ranging from stealing hard disk space, to gaining access to your personal data or draining your CPU. Thankfully, there are many antivirus tools available that can help safeguard your devices from such issues. The most important thing is to select one that has the least impact on performance of your system. Each of our antivirus programs is tested against this aspect. The results below are dependent on the amount of time it takes each program to perform an operation. Kaspersky Security Cloud Free, for instance, had a background effect of only 6% when conducting a full scan while ESET had an effect of 12 percent.

The German-based Avira is well-known in our tests and consistently scores well above the 90% mark in all three categories: Security, Performance and Usability (False Positives). Its interface is also user friendly and provides a wide range of features, including a smart firewall and a variety of privacy tools. Avira subscriptions are priced monthly rather than for a set 1-3 year period. This makes it simpler to cancel your subscription or change the terms at anytime.

A fairly new name that we’ve tested, Essentware – which was previously known as PCKeeper – uses the Avira engine in its core and generally scores well across the all the tests. Its interface is easy to use and its performance was good this month, although some stability issues – mostly related to scan jobs locking up – have lowered the rating. The detection was great and a flawless run of the certification sets was rewarded with VB100.
