In my opinion best anti-virus software is avast and kaspersky.
I use AVG anti-virues program and it's really awesome! It's free and it works great!
I have AVG and it works great. You also might want to try Spybot search and destroy with it. Both of them are free, free, free.
Coming from a gamer and a serious computer geek (with a background in programming and IT), there is only 1 real answer:
If you want a firewall, then ESET Smart Security.
(If you have a router, and haven't enabled DMZ manually (or don't know what DMZ is), you are more than likely (99.9%) fine without a software firewall)
Just about everything else can and probably will slow your PC to a crawl, and you never notice it until your PC starts working (installing something, playing a resource intensive game, etc.)
You're just wasting your time and money on anything else. I have tried them all, AVG (free and paid), Sophos, Kaspersky, McAfee, Vipre, you name it.
go for avast. you can try it free for one year.
be sure you keep it updated. Its real good thing.
I recommend to use Norton on your computer. Download and install the Norton on the computer.
You can install the free Norton from the following link.
