Suggest me best total security/antivirus for windows 7

Hello,

On vista, i was using bit defender and it was best.

but on vista, i installed bitdefender 2010, it was fine for 3 days.


Then my system sopped responding and hangs after startup, but fine in safe mode, i uninstalled bit defender and it's fine again now.


But i'm now confused which one else total security to use as i've never tried other than bit defender.

Please sugest me best and also mention if it consumes more or less memory[ram]

Both MSE and Avast uses less ram and being used by most users at the moment. For Antimalware program, u might want to have Malwarebytes or Hitman Pro.

MSE is Microsoft security essentials. It's an AV program. Yes, Malwarebytes antimalware is compatible with Win 7.

ok, then.
From suggested above.
MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) is only AntiVirus and AntiMalware.
Avast Free version only AV, but it has paid Security Suites
Malwarebytes just Antmalware programm
