5 Best Free Antivirus Softwares
One nasty virus could expose your financial information or stop your computer from working at all. What you need is the best antivirus software possible on your computer. Luckily, some of the best are also completely free!
Through a research we found the 5 Best Antivirus Softwares which are also free to use.

1. avast! Free Antivirus 8

AVAST Software's avast! Free Antivirus 8 most certainly deserves to be on any list of the best free antivirus programs. avast! Free Antivirus has fully functioning antivirus and antispyware engines protecting your PC from threats from the Internet, your files, emails, and even instant messages.

avast! Free Antivirus 8 supports Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.

One big reason I included avast! Free Antivirus 8 as a best free antivirus program is because of its "heuristics engine" which can detect previously unknown viruses and other malware. I also like the fact that AVAST has been making this antivirus product since 1988 and is often cited as the most installed antivirus product.

Download avast! Free Antivirus 8

2. AVG Anti-Virus Free 2013

Anti-Virus Free 2013 from AVG is one of the best free antivirus software tools available and is probably my personal favorite.

AVG Anti-Virus Free is a full-fledged antivirus and antispyware tool, includes an email scanner, link scanner, scheduled scanning options, automatic updates, and more. There is no need to pay for an antivirus program when one this good is just a download away.

AVG Anti-Virus Free 2013 works on Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.

The huge number of premium features, frequency of updating, and install-it-and-forget-it aspect of AVG's Anti-Virus Free 2013 really do make it one of the best of the best free antivirus programs available today.

3. Avira Free AntiVirus 2013

Avira Free AntiVirus 2013 protects you from viruses, Trojans, worms, spyware, adware, and various other kinds of malware, making it a fully functional antimalware tool and certainly one of the best free antivirus programs.

Avira Free AntiVirus 2013 works on Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP. Avira also makes Avira Free for Linux.

The scope of malware that Avira Free AntiVirus 2013 can keep you safe from is alone enough to make it one of the best free antivirus software programs but the heuristics and ease of use add to its value too. The only things I didn't like about Avira Free AntiVirus 2013 was the configuration you have to complete after installation which might be intimidating if you're a computer novice.

Download Avira Free AntiVirus 2013

4. Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition

Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition is on par with any of the arguably better-known free antivirus programs in my list.

Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition is incredibly easy to setup and configure, uses very little system resources (it won't slow down your computer), and doesn't constantly suggest that you upgrade to their premium offerings.

Antivirus Free Edition by Bitdefender fully supports Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.

The sheer simplicity of Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition, both during installation and use, make it, in my opinion, one of the better of the best free antivirus programs.

Download Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition

5. ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall 2013

ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall 2013 is just that - a combination free antivirus and firewall tool.

Check Point Software, the makers of ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall 2013, have been in the firewall business for a long time. They make good software and this program is no exception. While I didn't notice anything spectacular about the antivirus portion of this program, having an antivirus and firewall tightly integrated has its benefits.

ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall 2013 supports Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.

Tip: Be sure to choose the Custom Install and then click the Skip all offers link to avoid installing the toolbar and changing your browser settings.

Download ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall 2013

Which Free Antivirus Program is the "Best of the Best"?

As you can see from the list above, there are several fantastic free antivirus choices but which one really does the best job at preventing your computer from becoming infected?

Luckily, a company by the name of AV-TEST independently examines a number of free and paid antivirus programs and ranks them for protection, repair, and usability.

See their Detailed Test Reports for rankings. Antivirus makers regularly update their programs so AV-TEST publishes updated test results every few months.

English / Chinese hackers reportedly accessed U.S. weapons designs

Chinese hackers reportedly accessed U.S. weapons designs

More than two dozen advanced weapons systems are said to have been accessed. Documents obtained by the Washington Post do not indicate whether the breaches occurred on government or contractor networks.

 The designs for some of the most sensitive advanced U.S. weapons systems were reportedly accessed by Chinese hackers, according to a confidential report prepared by the Defense Science Board for the Pentagon.

The report, a copy of which was obtained by the Washington Post, listed more than two dozen compromised weapons systems, including missile defenses and combat aircraft. The security breaches, the latest linked to China, could allow the country to accelerate development of its own systems and weakens the U.S. military position, experts told the Post.

The public version of the report, titled "Resilient Military Systems and the Advanced Cyber Threat," (PDF) called the cyberthreat "serious," likening the potential situation to "the nuclear threat of the Cold War."

"[The Defense Department] is not prepared to defend against this threat," the report said. "With present capabilities and technology it is not possible to defend with confidence against the most sophisticated cyber attacks."

 Some of the designs accessed by hackers included an advanced Patriot missile system, known as PAC-3, as well as those for the F/A-18 fighter jet, the V-22 Osprey, and the Black Hawk helicopter, the Post reported.

The documents did not indicate when or where the intrusions occurred, whether they were via government or contractor computer networks.

"In many cases, they don't know they've been hacked until the FBI comes knocking on their door," an unidentified senior military official told the Post. "This is billions of dollars of combat advantage for China. They've just saved themselves 25 years of research and development."

The report emerges as the Pentagon steadily increases the tenor of allegations that the Chinese government and military have engaged in widespread cyberespionage targeting U.S. government and business computer networks. In its annual report to Congress on China's military earlier this month, the Pentagon accused China of masterminding a steady campaign of computer intrusions in 2012 that were designed to acquire information about the U.S. government's foreign policy and military plans.

In March, the Obama administration demanded that China end its "unprecedented" campaign of cyberespionage, warning that the hacking activity threatens to derail efforts to build stronger ties between the two countries.

A recent report alleged that an "overwhelming percentage " of cyberattacks on U.S. corporations, government agencies, and organizations originate from an office building on the outskirts of Shanghai that's connected to the People's Liberation Army.

China has denied any involvement and condemned the report for lack of hard evidence.

Samsung dominates China's smartphone market in Q1
The Korean phone maker breaks records selling 12.5 million smartphones in the first quarter, which is more than double Apple's 6.1 million devices sold.
by Dara Kerr

Samsung has succeeded in maintaining its edge on China's smartphone market for the fifth straight quarter in a row. It has also broke its own record by selling more than 10 million smartphones in a single quarter.

The Korean phone maker sold 12.5 million smartphones in China during the first quarter of 2013, according to new data from market research firm Strategy Analytics. This is up 2.2 percent from the last quarter of 2012 and makes up 18.5 percent of China's smartphone market. These numbers were first reported by The Korea Herald.

Coming in second place was China's Huawei with 8.1 million smartphones sold, followed by Lenovo with 7.9 million, China's Coolpad with 7 million, and ZTE with 6.4 million units sold. Picking up the rear, in sixth place, was Apple -- which sold 6.1 million smartphones in the first quarter.

China is one of the world's biggest smartphone markets making up roughly 32 percent of all global shipments, according to Strategy Analytics. And, Samsung has just begun ruling this market. In March, Strategy Analytics reported that for the first time Samsung topped the market in 2012, selling 30.06 million devices throughout the year -- pushing out rival Nokia. In 2011, Samsung sold 10.9 million units.

Samsung is also doing well globally. The phone maker took home almost all of the profits generated by Android smartphones last quarter, according to another report released by Strategy Analytics earlier this month. During the first quarter of 2013, global Android smartphone profits totaled $5.3 billion with Samsung capturing a hefty 95 percent, or $5.1 billion, of that amount.

Strategy Analytics senior analyst Woody Oh has pinned Samsung's success on an "efficient supply chain, sleek products, and crisp marketing."

English / Intel's 4th gen Haswell Processors

Faster, leaner, cooler: Get up to speed on Intel’s new ‘Haswell’ chips

If you hear a subtle tick-tock on a quiet night, don’t bother checking the clock. The noise is probably Intel’s relentless push forward, known as “tick-tock,” which demands rhythmic updates of the company’s processor architecture and manufacturing process. This year is a “tock” year, which means the new 4th-gen processors, code-named Haswell and rumored to be announced on June 3, will be built on a new version of Intel’s silicon.

Though the official announcement has yet to occur, we’re not totally in the dark about what Haswell will offer. Intel routinely teases its new product as the launch approaches by announcing features and making promises about the improvements we should expect to see. Leaks and rumors filter to our ears, as well, giving us an even better idea about what to expect. If you’re buying a computer the latter half of this year, listen up, because that PC will most likely have a Haswell processor. Here’s what we know about Haswell so far…

Nvidia Debuts GeForce GTX 780, New Gameplay Recording Tool
by Lauren Hockenson

Nvidia is certainly carving an interesting niche for itself that transcends beyond simply supplying graphics cards. Today, the company not only announced its latest graphics card, the GeForce GTX 780, but also a pleasant new feature for its software optimization service, the GeForce Experience: ShadowPlay, a new gameplay recording tool that promises higher efficiency than FRAPS.

First, let's tackle the hardware. The GeForce GTX 780 has a Kepler GPU with 2,304 cores and 3GB of GDDR5 memory, which the company indicates is roughly 50% more powerful than its predecessor. Nvidia also promises seamless graphics on Call of Duty: Ghosts, Watch Dogs and Battlefield 4, although that, understandably, remains to be seen.

But perhaps what is most interesting about the graphics card is its price: Starting at $649, it's the comparable, low cost option for those who experienced involuntary eye-bulging from the $999 price tag of the ultra-high performance GeForce GTX Titan.

While the new graphics card is a great (relatively) cost-effective maneuver for the high-end graphics card market, Nvidia's secret trump card may lie in the features that it is producing in its software, the GeForce Experience. In addition to optimizing graphics settings based on the rig and providing wireless streaming to Nvidia's foray into the handheld market, Project Shield, the GeForce Experience will also include automagic recording system ShadowPlay.

Customized via the GeForce Experience platform, SlashGear reports that ShadowPlay utilizes the H.264 video encoder built within the Kepler GPU to create an efficient and lag-free recording program with a minimal power draw that "more than takes on FRAPS, it out-does it." No public demos of the feature have occurred yet, but Nvidia ensures that recording even high-end games won't affect framerate.

The GeForce GTX 780 is shipping now to available partners worldwide, but those more interested in ShadowPlay will have to sit tight — the feature will come within an update to the GeForce Experience sometime later this summer.
