    Best IMO = Kaspersky

    Best Free = Microsoft Security Essentials

    For An Antivirus Application: Kaspersky or Eset NOD32

    However, I suggest that you get a registered copy of Malwarebytes Antimalware
    as well. By having both of them, you will pretty much be trouble-free as far as
    Viruses and Malware go.

    Malwarebytes although it's a great software it really pisses me off. It sometimes blocks legitimate sites and the "Add to ignore list" doesn't work straight away.

    The 3 Elite that has kept my pc clean :

    - Microsoft Security Essentials
    - Spybot Search and destroy
    - Malware Bytes

    Run these on scheduled scans everyday and you shouldn't have any problems.

    Eset Nod32 is the best. A lot of computer technicians (that know what they are doing) will recommend this program. I have recommend it to my clients in the past as well and everyone of them was pleased. I used to have people that just bought and installed other anti virus programs to uninstall and switch to eset.

    I've installed eset smart security (nod32 with firewall) on about 10 pcs.
    Never got any virus in the last years. However, you'll need to set it up properly if you don't want it to block almost anything.

    Best paid one is: Kaspersky Internet Security 2013
    Best free one is: avast! Free Antivirus 2013

    Trust me, I used to run a review website promoting antiviruses as affiliate. :)
