This month's issue

In the latest issue of PC Advisor we round-up the best anti-virus software for your Windows PC or laptop in 2015, with the six best internet security suites revealed. We'll show you how to get a faster, safer PC.

Also in this issue we explain the new features in Windows 10, and explain why every Windows user should upgrade (for free). That's not the only way you can breathe new life into your old PC either - our budget graphics cards round-up shows you how you can make more of games from as little as £45.

We've gone review-crazy in this issue, and also compare the best web browser for Windows, PDF editors and inkjet printers. And our standalone reviews cover everything from the new Toshiba Chromebook 2 ro the Samsung Galaxy Alpha and Fitbit Charge HR.

There's loads more, too, including useful advice on how to make money from your hobbies, boost your router security, prevent your webcam being hacked and more, plus our usual selection of news, analysis and buying advice.

      Spectacular performance with superb detail may not be on offer but, as we discovered when we tested seven sub-£100 cards, decent-enough game-playing speed, framerate and resolution most certainly is.

    • Best browsers for Windows
