    Re: best antivirus?

    I would recommend the paid subscription for Avast. You might want to consider it.

    I don't use third party antivirus applications. They often tamper with my Outlook mails. I often find emails that get filtered unnecessarily. Windows Defender is sufficient in itself.

    I think, Windows Defender does it best. No dramas, no purchase pop ps and still restricts and removes most of the malwares.

    Windows defender and occasional scan using Symantec scanner (which will highlight any malware found but not remove). If I need to download any files from unknown sites I download to a virtual machine first, if something goes wrong its lot easier to rollback the virtual image.

    Re: best antivirus?

    Like others have said, I would stay away from Norton personally. Some of my friends use Norton and I've noticed that on numerous occasions false positives have occurred (on perfectly normal files I have sent) which is a huge pain as the file is removed automatically. Someone may be able to correct me, but I believe Norton uses a whitelist system (if it hasn't seen it before and looks suspicious, remove it) this seems to occur frequently on .exe files with few downloads.

    Personally, I have used Eset Nod 32 for the past 10 or so years and find that it works great. No scanner is ever 100% effective, but I find that it provides the best all around protection for the price. I also use malwarebytes and hitman pro (free versions) but they do not provide active scanning so I can't comment on the paid-for versions.

    I, personally, can say the Symantec ( business products ) work well, however, the Norton line never seemed as good!

    +1 for Eset Nod32 (though I use the full Smart Security, never failed me).
