There is only tons of AV software out there but I believe the best is NOD32 and the cost is $40 for one year.


Nod32 Website

There is also free AV software like AVG and Avast.

the only paid AV software that I have used and that I would recommend is BitDefender. You can get a 2-year license for theĀ 



It's actually kinda funny that you mentioned BitDefender because I was going to put that in my reply because I just heard about it and heard really good things.  Yet, I felt since I had no personal experience with it, I left it out.

So Thanks Skrpune

On the side note I would also like to state that Skrpune is right AV programs are not going to protect you from downloading and infecting yourself.  You could theoretically have no AV software on your computer and you would be perfectly safe as long as you knew what you were doing, here is some tips for safe surfing.  Some of these may seem like common sense but it's what gets everybody.

Never visit a website that you don't trust

Never open emails or email attachments if you don't know who they are from

Never download anything unless its from a reliable source, or you know its safe

These are the things that infect peoples computer the most, and you would be surprised how many people don't know how EASY it is to get a virus if you make one wrong move to do one wrong thing you aren't sure about.



Hope this helps,

Hello there,
I use the free AVG,  but it is not that great.  The new one is AVIRA.

I would recommend that you use Sunbelt VIPRE anti-virus.
