Currently, a computer cannot work without anti-virus protection. Therefore, the user faces an acute question about the choice of antivirus software. The antivirus software market offers many antiviruses, both paid and paid versions. In some cases, you use it for free for 30 days. If you do not buy this antivirus, then it will become impossible to work with it in the future.
However, few people know that there are officially free antivirus programs. This is not about piracy and hacking, as you might think at first glance. It is about officially licensed anti-virus protection programs. A number of companies provides them. We do not know for sure how these companies motivate their decision to provide their products for free use, but there is a suspicion that this is how they advertise themselves.
The fact is that, as a rule, such antiviruses are provided free of charge only to home users on home computers for non-commercial use. If you want to install such an antivirus on an enterprise server, then it is already illegal, since you already have to pay for such an antivirus. We will not go into details of the anti-virus protection of corporate computers, since our conversation will focus exclusively on the home use of free anti-virus software. Today we will tell you how to install one of the free antiviruses on your computer. This antivirus is called AVG.
