This must be heard a lot but i really need to know your opinions about antiviruses. I don't want free AVs, i want full security on my pc. I don't really care about the price, but on the quality of the program. So, what AntiVirus do you think would be the best option?

I personally use avast free, which works pretty well. You just want to avoid Norton and Mcafee, in my opinion their just not worth the price.

http://www.amazon.com/ThreatTrack-Security-VIPRE-AntiVirus-2014/dp/B00FFZXTWG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1398368845&sr=8-1&keywords=lifetime+antivirus

Here's a couple more (free) programs I use that help to clean my system and improve performance:

1.https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner- This program just cleans up your computer- clears search history, recycling bin, etc. You can also do a registry scan with this.

2.https://www.malwarebytes.org/- Does a computer scan and helps to clean off any programs that have been deleted and does registry scans.

3.http://www.glarysoft.com/glary-utilities/- This program is useful to have after using these programs, it goes through and deletes the unused files and clears off disc space.

It's so so, but it sometimes freak me out when I boot up my computer and I see boot check in progress, then I realize it's just that program.
 
I use ccleaner, malwarebytes, and auslogics disc and registry defrag programs when my client's pcs need a tune up. I tried glary utilties and did not care for it, was not able to do the same stuff as easily.

On the note of antivius the two best rated are Bitdenfender and Kaspersky
FYI B.D. Total Security is just Internet Security with some useless utilities and a heftier price tag.

Cant find the article but Toms reviewed the 2014 Internet Security suites and put BitDefender number 1 and Kaspersky number 2.
I had been using Kaspersky for years but have seen some security issues sneak through on client's pcs and had a hell of a time getting it to not block port 445 (samba shares for non windows pcs) so next year I will be giving bit defender a try.

Oh, I've heard of Kapersky, but never Bitdefender. I liked the one I linked because it is lifetime unlike Norton, which charges alot per year..

Thank you for giving me some information about Kaspersky. I really wanted to know if it is that good as it is rated on sites that review antiviruses and it held the 2nd position for the best 2014 antiviruses. I personally think that CCleaner, Malwarebytes and a good AV should be enough. Maybe a defragmenter as well ( I prefer O&O Defrag). Now, about Glary Utilities i think that it is going to slow your computer a bit, even though it will help get rid of junk, but other than that, it is just useless since CCleaner deletes useless files and junk on your computer.
Anyway, thank you for sharing with me your opinion.
