4. Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows
Kaspersky Anti-Virus is not only a top-rated guard against common malware attacking your Windows 10 device, but it also throws in strong ransomware protection. This feature is part of its System Watcher module which keeps a watchful eye over your machine for any undiscovered threats that may also include botnets, rootkits, rogues, adware, keyloggers, spear phishing, and hard-to-detect fileless attacks.
Although it doesn’t’ flaunt numerous extra features as superb as those provided by some competitors and some of its wizards are, in truth, a bit inferior, you’ll still find some tools like a privacy cleaner and vulnerability scanner that can come in handy. And after all, the platform has nailed multiple independent tests.
The antivirus is rather lightweight as well – it does all its real-time and proactive safeguarding work while keeping your machine running fast and smooth at the same time and it doesn’t take up a whole lot of your free space.
