What's the Best Anti-virus?
This has been debated and there is no objective answer, only subjective opinions about different anti virus vendors.

I take that back Microsoft Security Essentials is known to have the least issues along with the anti virus that is least likely to cause a BSOD

It's all a matter of personal preference and what you need for your system to work best. I really like MSE. It works very well, it is very stable, has very few if any problems at all and Microsoft designed MSE to work with my OS. Best of all it is absolutely free, it will never expire, and it does not require any registration.

I recommend comodo internet security premium free, comes with a free anti virus and firewall.
Just choose the free download, they have a paid version but there free version is really good imho.

If your going with the free option I would go with Avast! or if you prefer the paid option I would say Bitdefender 2013. With the paid option, Bitdefender is running a deal for a lifetime license (5 years) for only $75 U.S., you can't beat a deal like that these days!

BTW - Bitdefender is calling their deal a "lifetime" license because they say the average lifespan of a pc these days is not more than 5 years.

I would agree with you to a point,Problem with comodo is their cloud database has several false positives.
For no false positives i would choose MSE or avast.
