It's really personal preference. The most important thing is to have one! We recommend AVG for a free program. It's essentially the previous version of their software, and it's very good. If you wish to purchase it, you get the latest version.

I like Norton AV as I think it catches the most, but it's also a resource hog, and can slow down many systems.

The only one I can't recommend is McAfee, it seems to be disabled too easily, and we've seen too many members with McAfee also have viruses/trojans.
