If you use a Windows powered computer, one of the most indispensable softwares you need to have is the antivirus software. And irrespective of what many software companies want you to believe, there is no need to buy an antivirus software for your PC as there are lots of free antivirus softwares available in the market. Some of the most popular and free antivirus programs that are available in the market include Avast, Microsoft Security Essentials, and Avira. But all these antivirus softwares are not completely free. The basic features are generally made available free of cost while the users are required to pay for some premium features like protection against spam and firewalls.

NANO Antivirus is  a new complete antivirus software which entered the market recently and provides all the features for free of cost. Yes the software is completely free and users need not pay anything for any of its high end features. This software offers complete protection against viruses and malware. NANO Antivirus also has its own antivirus engine and laboratory which keeps its virus database up to date. Other notable premium features of any good antivirus software like real time system protection, and monitoring of web traffic and Emails too are available with it. There are no problems with the functioning of the software. NANO Antivirus is fast while checking the computer and didn’t have any impact on the functioning of the PC’s speed during my test. Speed of the software can also be accelerated by excluding some files from being scanned. This can be done by putting some files which are considered to be safe in the trusted area.

Any suspicious files on the computer can be quarantined by just right clicking on them. Quarantined files can be subjected for further analysis and later clear them from any malware. Interface of the software is very easy to understand and it even has multiple interfaces for different kinds of users. Some simple interfaces are meant for ordinary users who don’t need the software’s complex functionalities. High end interfaces allow customization of the software to suit the requirements of advanced users like programmers and other IT professionals. One issue with NANO Antivirus is that you will need higher hardware configuration on your computer to make the software work well (a minimum of 1 GB RAM and a 1.2 GHz processor). All in all, NANO Antivirus is a complete computer antivirus software that you can try. And I hope that the developers keep the software completely free even after it gains some popularity.
