There are several excellent Anti Virus vendors. Trend Micro is a company I've used for year s and have great respect for. In fact I have worked directly with thier engineering team and have deep confidence in their poroduct.

The one thing you really must do it make sure that you hve a contract for autopdates and turn on the option for auto updates. If you don't do this, new theats can possibly compromise you machine. P-chilling is my favorite application to protect agisnt viruses and it also provides parental control which protecting your family from browsing to non-appropriate websites.

Best of luck and thanks for the question
