Viruses and malware are always lurking around every corner on the world wide web, and over the years, scams have only gotten worse. Antivirus software is essential to any Windows-based computer to help keep you protected. While Windows Defender helps keep you safe from most modern viruses, we recommend two additional programs.

Webroot SecureAnywhere

Metro Computerworks recommends Webroot SecureAnywhere. Webroot is a quality option that catches the malware that falls through the cracks. It’s simple and runs in the background with hardly any performance impact, not to mention the low cost of $4 per month.

Malwarebytes is a free program designed to target PUPs (potentially unwanted programs) like browser toolbars and extensions that pose as coupon finders to track your information, or root kits that disguise themselves as core programs of the operating system. Available for both Windows and macOS, it’s a system essential tool. Oh, and the best part? It’s free.
