    Mcafee is good, but when downloading files its sometimes best to download on a virtual pc first just incase ransomware is built into it.

    I'm using Bitdefender Internet Security on all 3 comps in my office. It isn't cheap but multiple licenses pay off. I would say it works pretty descent as an antivirus and firewall.

    I use linux.
    I only install software from trusted sources. Don't run bullshit files and keep a close watch on the processes running on my computer (and what they're upto).

    Never had a malware problem. Ever.

    Eset. Been great for over 15 years. Newegg has it on sale often. 3 PCs for less than $30.

    It's a toss up for me, Bitdefender worked great but somehow interfered with Followliker on my desktop, so I got Kaspersky that worked great but for some reason I tried to uninstall to reinstall,had problems, so know i'm with Norton Security and I like it.

    I use avast for almost 10 years. I think it is lightweight with nice realtime protection.
    Whatever av you use, just ensure the virus definiton database always uptodate, otherwise it will be useless.
