Default Which Anti-Virus to use?

I havnt used an anti-virus software for over a year now, because I simply didnt need it. But now I do, and I cant decide. Last time I had one, I used Norton Anti-Virus. Is there a better one now? Has Kaspersky becom better than Norton now?

I had bad sides on AVG. When I did a full system scan, It just reported that there was virus. There was no buttons to fix or delete them.

Hmm well those are all free ones, and from experience paying for something gets you something better. So from ones that you need to buy, which is better?

If you wish to purchase one look at BitDefender, Avast, Antivir or google for some reviews/comparisons.
