Default Re: What Anti Virus should i choose

I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials now. We use Forefront at work and it's stopped things that I've watched completely overwhelm AVG, Avast, McAfee and Norton (though that's not hard for those last two.) I use Malware Bytes and SUPERAntiSpyware when things get out of hand, which is rare on my personal PC, but I use them all the time to fix others' systems

McAfee and Norton also suck the jebus out of performance on a computer. They will never find their way onto any PC I ever build or recommend.

Eset Smart Security

Free Smart Security Downloads from ESET

Give the free trial a try and see how you like it. I've been using it for a few years now. Best security suite ever I think.

Hmm I've heard that's good. I think it's the only one I'd pay for.
Payed=go for Kaspersky
Free=go for Avast

You can find good deals online for kaspersky. I brought one for 19.99 for 3 computers when it was on sale - Kaspersky Internet Security. Download the free one for now and when you see Kaspersky goes on sale, GET IT!! Site such as Dealspl.us and buy.com
