What you are asking is a personal preference response and different people will like different programs and mixtures.
I have never used a suite of software because I find one part may work good but another does not.
Understand also that no program is going to stop 100% of infections since there are new ones made everyday.
I myself use Avast and find it highly effective for my AV with updating itself everyday and sometimes twice a day.
:D

If I had to choose it would be Avast.
Small footprint thus less system resources used which will not slow your system down.

No matter how you rephrase it, you're still going to get more than one answer. :D

There is no 'best'. If there were, there would be no others. ;)

But, 'whatever' eh? :D

Have fun ...

I do not prefer "security suites".
I prefer Avira anti virus and malwarebytes antimalware.

For what it's worth, I'm currently using "Outpost Security Suite" (Firewall,Antivirus & Antispyware).
I rate it very highly for stability, reliability & effectiveness (and it's very user-friendly).
Not the cheapest but what are all the above qualities in one package worth?

Unlike some, I prefer an all-in-one suite as long as it performs well on all fronts. And mine does.
Also, a suite often consumes fewer resources in total compared to several security utilities running separately.

Everyday new viruses are coming. Product depends upon reviews how better they are. Its also depends upon your own experience if you are always exposed to such environments.

Just remember that simple good practice is as important as any security suite. Even if you had "the best" it wouldn't be able to keep you safe if you did anything particularly silly.
