    My kaspesky license just expired and I am wondering if I should renew it or try a new (better) antivirus. I tried a few websites to know which was the best antivirus (the one that keeps its databases up-to-date and really does protect the pc) but, it seems like all reviews are biased.

    So, which is your fav antivirus and WHY? ;)

    Kaspersky is good but this question has been discussed on this forum many times just use the search box...

    Kaspersky and Eset NOD32 are among the best.

    I use kaspersky paid and I am totally happy with it. No need to update manually and no pressure on your RAM/CPU either..

    They are all the same really. Top ones are bitdefender/norton/kaspersky/nod32

    right now most say bitdefender is on top. Bitdefender just released their 2015 version.. I keep hearing kaspersky is a resource hog but good. They are all good. None of them are really the best anymore

    I use Nod32 and it's the best choice IMO.

    But in all seriousness the times I have ran antivirus haven't protected me, I got that bitcoin mining virus back in Jan, I wasn't running AV but I gave my copy to my dad who got the exact same Virus back in the UK (he's a heavy yahoo user, not sure how I got it) Thinking about wiping my Laptop and giving Windows 8.1 a try.
