    Our Verdict

    As a company with over twenty years of experience in online security, Quick Heal’s suite of Antivirus software could be what you need.

    However, the Antivirus program comes with a few technical limitations. Therefore, older Windows users and those of you with a Mac may want to try a different company, such as Norton. 


    • Total ransomware protection
    • Automatic backup
    • Scans your PC without slowing it down


    • Requires 1.5GB disk space
    • Email protection not supported for all email clients
    • Older Windows operating systems won’t be able to access some features
    • Anti-Rootkit only supported on 32-bit systems
    • No phishing protection
    • No privacy protection

    Overview of Quick Heal

    Undoubtedly, Quick Heal’s biggest selling point is that many of its products cover multiple devices. This will certainly give many consumers peace of mind, but the technological considerations may prove prohibitive to some. 

    How to Set It Up and Uninstall

    Quick Heal’s Antivirus software is easy to download and install. You can also give it a try for 30 days for free.

    1. Choose whether you’d like to purchase the product or try the free trial.
    2. Next, select an installation language and click Download.
    3. Pick a destination directory and whichever installation options you’d like, then press Download.
    4. Once it’s complete, you’ll be prompted to register for updates now or later.
    5. That’s it! You can now run it and scan for problems.

    Uninstalling is as easy as clicking the Uninstall file in the installation folder.


    Quick Heal Antivirus is a decent lower-level solution for most day-to-day needs, at a reasonable price. Anti-spyware and anti-malware capabilities are also included, as is an anti-keylogger. 

    However, if you’re looking for more robust web protection, you may want to stick with McAfee or Norton.
