Windows 7: best antivirus (paid and freeware)

It's all a matter of opinion.

I base my recommendations off the type of user. If you are the type that steers clear of peer to peer sites, you don't download pirated software, you don't look for hacks and serial numbers and passwords and you don't surf for free porn all day...then I feel that most of the free AV's out there provide a reasonable amount of protection for your surfing habits. MSE, Avast, etc are all fine choices.

If you take more risks (like the above) and you visit questionable websites that offer things for free that shouldn't be free...then you might want a solution with more built in protection like Norton or eset.


If there truly was a best AV product, don't you think that all of us would run it without question?

Anyone tried Internet Security Software - AntivirusPlus 2012 yet?

I use the Good and Free system security combination. recommended by Savior, and the Raxco program seems similar, but you have to pay for it, and it is not well known yet. Was curious if the Raxco antivirus was a good program. I may put it on one of my systems and see what I think if no one can give me an opinion one way or the other. I've had pretty good experiences with Raxco so far. Their registry cleaner, although I would not recommend it as I do not recommend any registry cleaners, never caused major problems on any of the 10 systems I tested it out on. Their defrag program also seems to work well for speeding up systems. I'm curious, how does their antivirus software fare?

Internet Security Software - AntivirusPlus 2012 did not impress me. WOT is more careful than the system setup in that program, and the scan used too many system resources for my liking. It seems to have a lot of security features, but I could not tell whether they did anything or were just window dressing.
