    I have been using ESET Smart Security but recently my subscription ran out. What are some good programs that are out there now? I was thinking Bitdefender or Kaspersky

    It really depends on who you ask. Some people prefer Nod32, others Kaspersky, others Bitdefender. Each has its own unique working system and they all work very well with one another. However, such as Termination said I would go with Avira. I found it to be better then Nod32 in some cases and the best part is that it is freeware and simple to use. Constantly being updated to adapt to changing viruses so it is very useful.

    technically bit defender is the best out there, but i personally prefer Eset NOD32, if you buy prem here you can get a never ending subscription

    Lol, McAfee sucks big giant donkey balls.

    You should install Avira and see how many viruses it finds. I'm guessing at least 5.

    Yeah it found 5 but mcafee found 6.
    They were all from torrents with keygens.

    Ya Avira is the best, highest detection rate of them all. I plan to get a copy of that soon to replace my copy of NOD32

    It rests half-way down the list at 94.55% detection rate.
