Recently, I chose my top five anti-malware applications and there are many more that didn’t make the cut. Here on Windows Guides, we have a section dedicated to security and anti-malware application reviews. But, if you want a list of a bunch of security programs, look no further than Gizmo’s freeware.
Personally, I’d start with the list of the best free anti-virus software and then, when your sitting tightly and have an afternoon… or day to kill, check out the list of “probably the best free security [programs] in the world.” The list includes the following types of security software:
- Realtime protection
- Tools for virus removal
- System hardening-HIPS
- System hardening
- Vulnerability scanning and updates
- Browser security
- System monitoring
- Network traffic monitoring
- System cleaning
- Data rescue
- System rescue
- Tests and malware analysis tools
- Vista/Windows 7 spesific security
