I believe the best antivirus is no antivirus.

But if you really want one, Avast is a great antivirus.

all of the following programs are free

for your antivirus, use avast! or avira

Run prevx also. If it detects anything, don't buy the program, just run these programs to remove the infection or confirm it is a false positive:
malwarebytes anti-malware
SUPERAntiSpyware
emsisoft antimalware


To avoid running into problems over the internet use chrome with:
WOT
XMarks
LastPass

Instead of your default DNS use Norton DNS

Also, think about backing your data up locally using Paragon Free, or online using Crashplan. Crashplan is not free, but if youa re to pay for anything, pay for online backup.

Hell I just use AVG Free. Never had a problem with it, and it runs great on my system.

AVG/AVAST for free or the best I have used is Eset Nod32.

I use Microsoft Security Essentials. Probably the best anti-virus software I have ever used. And the best part, ITS FREE.
