Avast and MBAM, both running in the background with real-time protection. Avast is a light AV. If you're going for paid, I would suggest Norton. Kaspersky is also a very good security app. You might want to read some reviews as these should help you decide:

AV-Test Certifications
AV-Comparatives Detection Tests
AV-Comparatives Retrospective Tests
AV-Comparatives Whole Product Dynamic Tests
AV-Comparatives False Alarm Tests
AV-Comparatives Performance Tests
AV-Comparatives Removal Tests
AV-Comparatives Potentially Unwanted Applications (PUA) Tests

Panda and Avira are known to have many false positives.

Ugh, another best AV thread.


From a purely BSOD perspective there is a hands down winner MSE.

And I am not even an MSE fan
