I have Kaspersky Internet Security.

When I first bought my current computer, Windows 8, it came with free McAfee. Before that, I had Kaspersky for many years being told at the time that it was the best. McAfee was okay, but I preferred Kaspersky, so when McAfee was due to expire, I went back to Kaspersky finding it once again much better, and cheaper although their offer was cheaper, the full price was £80 plus.

Therefore, I would recommend Kaspersky Internet Security 2016. Buy the Multi-Device version. That means you can protect three devices, very handy if you have an additional laptop etc.

Dump he lot and use AVG Free. I have used this program on all computers for the last 12 years including my Smartphone and not a single problem.

It's so good that I had a rare pang of guilt a month ago and finally subscribed to the paid Pro version. It costs me $65 a year and can be used on as many business and personal computers as we have on our network.

I use AVG - again no problems - the IT guru at my last office recommended AVG or Kaspersky but to avoid Norton as it seriously slowed down the machines.

I used Kaspersky for a number of years but I started having trouble with my on line banking. The latter is protected by their in house "Rapport" system. This system also covers any other financial site you visit. I then disconnected Kaspersky and have had no trouble since then, touch wood. Bob Appleton

My 'geek' strips Kaspersky and McAfee off new laptops and replaces with AVG Free and Microsofts own Security.....this is what I also run along with a free Adware programme Malwarebytes.

I use ESET NOD 32 which was recommended by an IT wizard I know, No problems for the last three years. AVAST is also a popular one.

Just interjecting but I use ESET and its very good. Cost about £30 a year for two PCs but I think I get a discount for valued customer. Search for them on the internet.

Maybe I,m lucky and only occasionally get the odd Viagra adverts in my e mail inbox(which in my opinion is nothing remotely to do with virus protection).
Microsoft were the first to pay hackers good money for any exploitation into that system.
To this day they are still the best payers and I pay for what I get...precisely nothing.

I'm using the Avast free version; seems OK.
Bank likes me to run Trusteer Rapport.

Sorry for late reply - for me it's £21 p.a. for ESET which I use on my main laptop. I use free Avast on my old Windows XP laptop which I keep as a backup.
