Which Free Anti-Virus is best for 2014? The Computer Dudes are currently testing them!
19 Jan : 19:28  by admin
One of the ways The Computer Dudes, Inc. stay ahead of the competition is by doing our own testing. Then overtime testing again and again.

Our Testing of Current Free Anti-Virus for 2014

The test Hardware is an HP Workstation XW6200
Xeon Quadcore @ 3.2Gb
3.25 Gb of RAM
500 Gb standard SATA Hard Drive

Software configuration: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit with updates.


Anti-Virus Products To Test

AVG, AVAST, Kaspersky,

Testing Methodology

We will look at load size, number of components, memory use and what it will catch. For the what will it catch segment we have a number of viruses and Trojans on a USB drive.

A simple test will be to copy the infected files from the USB drive to the computer C drive or Windows Desktop. If the Anti-Virus is working, and up to date, then it should detect all the infected files and prevent them from being copied.

AVG Testing Complete

AVG 2014 with all installation options and services off except the free Anti-Virus

Program Components Running:
Processes: avgui.exe 3.4 K
Services: AVGwd and AvgIDS Agent

Memory Use: less than 5k unless scan is running
CPU Use: less than 1 percent unless scan is running
Boot Speed Test: No noticeable change on boot speed
Virus Transfer Test: Six Test Viruses / Trojans blocked

Conclusions: The "trick" with the AVG product for 2014 is to turn off all the services and options. Leave only the free Antivirus running. The AVG product is solid with a small "footprint."


AVAST Testing Complete

Avast 2014 with all installation options and services off.

Program Components Running:
Processes: Avastui.exe 3.1 K
Services: avast!

Memory Use: less than 5k unless scan is running
CPU Use: less than 1 percent unless scan is running
Boot Speed Test: No noticeable change on boot speed
Virus Transfer Test: Five of Six Test Viruses / Trojans blocked

Conclusions: The Avast product has an even smaller "footprint" than AVG. No problems with resources for Avast. It did miss one of the Trojans on our virus test CD-ROM, but we are not concerned.
