Which anti-virus software should I buy for my PC with Vista Home Edition?

I tried the free trial of AVG, but I didn’t really like it.

I’m looking to purchase one, but since there are so many, I don’t know which one would be best.

I’m not too worried about getting a virus since I only use the Internet for emails, Y/A and news websites.
I rarely download songs, etc.

Thank you!

    Don’t buy any…

    User this one with Vista – I do and it’s fine.

    http://www.avast.com

    Download the FREE version and install it – register it and away you go.

    Works fine and picks up everything remotely dodgy

    Avast & AntiVira aren’t very good from my experience.

    The best anti-virus in my opinion is ESET NOD32 or Smart Security. It has the lowest footprint, competitive prices, and a very high detection rate. Have a look at their website for more information, at http://www.eset.co.uk

    Good luck!

    Just using the net for emails and things is no guarantee whatsoever against viruses.

    I wouldn’t buy an antivirus because avg or avast, spybot s&d and maybe a firewall like zone alarm are as good as anything you might buy.

    I’ve had Norton bundled free on a laptop and a PC and it was awful – it just caused lots of problems. If you insist on buying, try Kaspersky.

    Well I use Mcafee . If you have a virus it notifies at the bottom of your screen.As soon as it shows it shows which software or file it comes from. Then you must immediately delete the file/software.

    I use Mcafee and also malwarbytes.
    Virus software doesn’t always catch the malware.

    You are absolutely right. When you have an expensive computer you should be willing to protect is the best possible way.
    I would however not buy just an anti virus program, I wouold get an internet security program. It has everything under one roof, anti virus, anti spyware, firewall and much much more. It is a little more expensive than just and anti virus program
    There are a lot of different internet security programs, but I will recommend a few to you. I know these programs not just from reading about it, no I used everyone of them. I like experimenting and check out programs
    Bitdefender Total Security ( running this at his moment ) — very good
    ESET Smart Security – used it until a couple of months ago. — very good
    Zone Alarm Security Suite – good program ++++
    Trend Micro Internet Security – good progrram +++

    I give you the links of my 2 favorites programs
    http://www.bitdefender.com/PRODUCT-2214-en–BitDefender-Total-Security-2009-(with-Online-Backup).html

    http://www.eset.com/smartsecurity/

    ESET Smart Security did find more infections than any other program I used. My advise is therefore. to get ESETE Smart Security

    Hope I could help you making up your mind
