I like MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) been using since I got this laptop, and have no problems since then, used to have pre-installed trail of Norton but it was quite a heavy program and could be a little tedious.

MSE and Avast free, in that order. I've used Avast free in the past with good results but it kept getting more and more feature rich so, on this machine, I tried MSE since it is so popular. I've been happy with it.

I've used Norton, McAfee, Panda, Avast, Fsecure, AVG, Eset, Ad-Aware, CA, Webroot, MSE & TrendMicro. I have opinions on all of them. Most are solid several are so questionable that if asked I will suggest avoidance or immediate removal. In the end these are all personal choices and as long as regularly updated and run are better then then best of the best not updated and run. What ever you choose learn to use it properly and then single most important rule is avoid those obvious sites and phishes that can be spotted form a mile away and if you get attacked update and deep run AV best from safe mode several times till nothing shows and learn.....always learn, we are the best first line of defense against attacks.
