I wouldn't even bother paying money for antivirus software. You can run a combination of AVG and Malwarebytes for free, and still maintain a healthy computer.

I use Windows Security Essentials and MalwareBytes - I do a lot of web surfing and never have issues. MalwareBytes does have a "premium" option to give live scans - it gives you a free 30-day trial on it.

If you watch the reviews - they bounce up and down as to who is "best" - seldom does any of the products "stay on top". This is why I refuse to purchase one....

google AV-comparatives, gives a good synopsis of who has the better results from qtr to qtr. Some bias in testing, but overall, reliable info.

*IF you don't mind a handful of 'allow/block' popups, I seem impressed by Personal Firewall 7 (free!), so far.....(I'd rather it ask me to 'allow', than for it to simply allow a miscreant process to be installed/ take hold!)
