      Bitdefender is another best paid version Anti-Virus program if you can afford to protect your computer system.

        AVG is ok for a free antivirus. but sometimes it can't pick up latest virus until few days later.

        I saw some website. it seems only nod32 pick up the latest virus before the other does.

        Hows ms's security essentitals did anyone try it or have any review? do they update fast and pick up all the latest virus and malware?

            I recommend to use Avast. I use it now since more than a year and had no virus problems anymore. Even if I caught a virus it was killed by avast quickly

            Furthermore it can delete files before booting the operating system which avg and avira cannot.

                I am using Avast too now for quite some years I am very happy about it: regulair updates, no false positives and the main reason I switched over to this one is the lowest use on system resources while active. The only minus point I had with it at first that it is very hard to find the right settings to get no regulair notifications at all, which was quite anoying during game-play, as you probably can imagine

                And the best protection is still to use your common sense, don't trust everything found online and check it beforehand.
                Famous AA cold shower: when you really try to grope a girl, patting her head instead !
                By the way: calming down between a girls lovely breasts is *not* considered to be an erotic action.
                And: even a Lesbian dreams about a Prince on a White Horse.
                Some consider sex to be a sport ... maybe they should add it to The Olympics too?

                          AVG isn't OK for a free anti-virus as it's more known for its false positives then its good detections (and before anyone pulls out the false positive fiasco that hit avast last year they did admit it was their fault as they pushed the related update without testing it) plus it doesn't detect a lot of viruses and exploits (and before anyone also accuses me of trolling I used to use AVG and got hit by a false positive which made me move to avast and it had covered my ass a lot better then that pile of tripe).

                          Also all anti-virus programs can't protect you from 100% of all the nasties out there (that includes all the fake anti-virus programs that are out there) so it's best to have a layered defence with one anti-virus of your choice (just not AVG) and several anti-malware tools (the two Hongfire has linked to are the currently the best you can get although I'd suggest going pro on malwarebytes as it adds extra protection for a one time fee for life).

                              I must agree with her. Any free AV/Anti-Malware are cancer
                              It is better without one than installing free AV/Malware. One of Anti Virus Company employer(I forgot which one) said that they dont give Free antivirus to delete actual Virus, in fact they give false/fake caution/deletion virus to give customer very satisfied or giving mild virus/spyware to make their computer slow down so that customer believe their computer have been infected
