Digital Defender and Other Antivirus

Digital Defender is free, fast and simple to use free antivirus. It also provides powerful protection against virus, spyware and malware infection.

One small limitation of Digital Defender Free version is that virus definitions can be updated once a day only. We are quite surprised with this limitation, as most of other free antivirus software like Panda Cloud Antivirus, and Microsoft Security Essentials come with automatic updates without any limitations.
This is, however, a pretty small limitation, and does not reduces the usefulness of this free antivirus. So, if you want a free light weight antivirus, Digital Defender is a good choice.
