    Hey everyone

    I'm expecting delivery of a windows 8.1 laptop on Friday and I was wondering how vital antivirus software is (I haven't owned a PC/laptop in about 8 years) and which one would be worth looking into.

    Thanks for any help

    In my opinion, antivirus software is a must for ANY computer. I recommend Avast Antivirus. I have been using their software on my devices for years and they have never failed me. I have the Internet Security version (I pay a monthly fee), but the free version will do the job perfectly.

    Avast free version works great for me. You might also consider (to run in addition to Avast) Malwarebytes anti-malware (free).

    If its a windows 8.1 pc it comes with there own free called windows defender
    Now it's not the best but Avast is also not the best as it does use a lot of the pc's resources
    I have always used AVG (yes I no) But I have never got a virus nor as any of my family plus it's a two year licence
