what is the best antivirus?

The best free antivirus in my opinion is Avast 5. Though AVG is also good.
A paid antivirus would has Kaspersky or NOD32. I wouldnt recommend McAffee or Norton because they slow down your system.
Also, install SpyBot Search And Destroy. Its the best anti-malware/spyware software around.

Not sure what you may already have, PCs are often supplied with a commercial product such as Norton, Mcaffee or Kaspersky Usually the virus definitons get updated for the first 90days and then you have to purchase the product updates for an annual fee

Norton may slow down the performance of your computer,and it is a paid software what i think is instead of going with this you can download any of these free software (avg,avast or avaira) they all are free for one year and do the same thing what norton does without slowing down your computer.
