I just built my first PC, installed Windows 7 and was just curious what protection should I have installed on my machine? What is the best Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware, Anti Spyware combo? I'm currently using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium & Microsoft Security Essentials. I'd like good protection but minimal resources being used in the process, if possible.

Any suggestions, recommendations, comments? What antivirus combo do you have on your desktop, if any? Also, I was curious if there are any other recommend applications for a newly built PC? Novice here so I appreciate any help.

Malwarebytes + Security Essentials is a great combo. For suspicious files, run them through www.metascan-online.com for a little extra peace of mind.
