    I personally like Kaspersky better than the other two mentioned here.

    I'd go for Norton AntiVirus... It costs money, and a fair bit of it too, but it's reliable and well-designed. I've never used anything else, and never had a virus of any sort when running it.

    I recommend Norton as well. Never had an infection on my PC including the time when I was working on a friends computer hooked up to my network and she had 600 distinct viruses, trojans and worms on her computer. Norton allowed me to clean the PC so that I could safely backup all of her data and then reformat and reinstall all her software.
