Windows 7: What's the Best Anti-virus?

Strange, I have had nothing but excellent results from them. Originally started with McAfee when it was a part of Windows (watered down version), then full till Norton's bought it, and them moved onto NAV, then with all the new versions there after.

Question for the collective:
What is the best Tracking Security product? That is, blocking those insidious tracking software devices?
I am a novice in the subject, but so far it would appear that "Disconnect" and "Do Not Track Plus" are in front. Ghostery in the hunt also but is more of an expert-level tool from what I can understand.
As it is with Virus/Malware/Site-checking, one should only use ONE of these add-ons per browser.

I Like Collusion as a tool for informing the user, and by using Collusion and one of these tools, one can see the effect the tool is having.

Also as it is with various other protective measures, these products tax performance to varying degrees, and seem to have interaction issues with other privacy measures such as ad blockers or redirect-watchers

Zapp22? What you are talking about is basically a Trojan designed to track you on the internet. Any decent Security Suite should vanquish those nasty's. Also a good idea would be to run it while your computer is idle, that's WHEN they come out to play, and easy catchable by your security suite.

The best AV is the one you personally believe in. Which may/may not be one we believe in.
Personally believe in Eset Nod 32 Antiviru

zapp22 These trackers use the cookies you have on your PC, the only way to stop them is clear your cookies after every time you use your PC daily.

which antivirus is best.

hey all, i have tried alot of the free antivirus and most seem to do a good job at what they are supposed to do."Provide Basic Protection". i have heard and read all the horror stories about all of them. i haven't had alot of trouble with any,and the few problems i have had were easy to resolve. AVG 2012 free seems to do as good as MSE and i like the do not track feature in AVG. i think any free antivirus is good with other free anti malware protection. use common sense and freeware you should be good. since they are free try them all and find one that fits your needs. most seem to come with alot of crap that one doesn't want, that seems to be the biggest fault that i can find. freeware rocks and i am going to continue to try all that impresses me just for the hell of it. just my thoughts. thanks for the space. poorguy
