TotalAV - Reviewed & Compared

The Good

Total AV is a recent entry into the crowded field of Antivirus software. They pride themselves on offering good value for the money, and a range of options, depending on what version you purchase.

Their "essential" version covers one PC for viruses/Trojans/malware, and is a good buy at $19.99. But for our money, you want the "Complete" version, which protects up to 5 PC's for everything from viruses to intrusion and even cleans unwanted files. At $59.99, it's one of the lowest priced fully-featured anti-virus suites available.

The Bad

The company is fairly new, and therefore is untested. How fast do they respond to new threats? How often (and how fast) are difficult virus signatures sent to end users? These questions remain unanswered. I'm also a little put off by the website – poorly written phrases like "Protection For All Your Family" suggests a lack of attention to detail.


It was difficult to find a lot of talk or reviews on Total AV from long-time respected PC publications (PCMag, Tom's Hardware, etc.) This may not mean anything, but for many users, the reputation of an AV suite is as important as the price.


  • Excellent Pricing.
  • Solid Suite of Features.
  • PC/MAC/iOS/Android Compatible.
  • Even Offers Support For Older Version Of Windows, Like XP (SP3).

Our Final Verdict: 9.4/10

I'd like to see the company present a more compelling reason than price to buy them. That said, Total AV presents a host of good features for the money, making them a solid antivirus option if price is a factor.
