If you're looking for free, Microsoft Security Essentials is very nice. Avast 5 works fine too.

If you want paid, Norton Internet Security 2010 is very good, and Nod32.

Alot of people say that the new Norton is top notch for paid programs and it's not a memory hog like previous versions. I go with free services and use Avira AV and Threatfire. ESET is another one that alot recommend. The big thing is look at detection success and options. For instance AVAST has an email scanner whereas Avira doesn't but Avira has a higher success rate of detection.

If your purchasing one:

Norton 2010 hands down.
Excellent Product, coming from a former Norton hater.

"Norton its a piece of junk" - Chris2010

Kaspersky and Avast! are very good programs. You should look at what features both offer, decide whether or not you want to pay and then you should install NIS2010.

What ever you decide to go with, you should first install the trial the company offers. You may find that you don't like that particular program or that it has an incompatibility with something on your PC.

Norton

Anti-Virus 1 PC Licence: $14.49 / $14.95 / $18.99
Anti-Virus 3 PC Licence: $32.95 / $38.99
Internet Security 1 PC Licence: $19.95 / $22.99
Internet Security 3 PC Licence: $30.95 / $39.99 + $1.99 P&P

I was going to look for Kaspersky and Avast! prices but I can't be bothered, at the moment.

I don't know if ZTechSoftware is a reputable website. Here is its Web of Trust rating.

One you need to pay for and the other is free. Does that help your decision?
