AntiVirus

Apart from Microsoft eseential, what is the best anti-virus going for me to use. I love avira apart from when i get false postitives and tell it to always ignore it always seems to forget that setting.

Any help would be really nice.

Avast! is very good. Seeing as it happens to you with Avira, I though I'd mention I haven't yet received any false positives, and I've been using it for nearly 3 years now.

If you're planning on installing to a NetBook, the Microsoft Security Essentials remains a good choice.

I like Emsisoft Anti-Malware but it can be annoying if you don't configure it correctly to your tastes. It's one of the highest rated on the market but you know you can't catch everything...

Emsisoft Anti-Malware Free and Mamutu behavior blocker - (a-squared) Freeware Malware scanner, remover and protection against new infections of Viruses, Spyware, Trojan Horses, Bots, Backdoors.

A different AVG slant -

A lot of people use AVG & NEVER have a BSOD...

Have been using AVG [paid] for years here on 3 computers all clean / no infections. No sign of any of the dreaded BSOD's either....

Antivirus Help
Is Microsoft Security Essentials + MalwareBytes Anti-Malware a good A/V solution? What about Norton 360 or Kaspersky? Whether i pay or not isn't a factor. I would like an AV with a good UI and as high detection and real-time protection rates as possible.
