If you're going to pay for your antivirus program, the following are my best antivirus software recommendations. Note that prices for antivirus products are based on an annual subscription.
1.) Kaspersky Antivirus
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 uses a totally new approach to data security, based on restricting each program's rights to access system resources. This approach helps prevent unwanted actions by suspicious and hazardous programs.
The application's ability to protect each user's confidential data has also been considerably enhanced. The application now includes wizards and tools which substantially simplify specific computer protection tasks. New Protection Features: Scanning the operating system and installed software to detect and eliminate vulnerabilities, maintains a high system security level and prevents hazardous programs penetrating your system.
The new Security Analyzer and Browser Configuration wizards facilitate scanning for, and elimination of, security threats and vulnerabilities in installed programs, and in the configuration of the operating system and browser. Kaspersky Lab now reacts more quickly to new threats through the use of the Kaspersky Security Network, which gathers data about the infection of users' computers and sends it to Kaspersky Lab's servers. The new System Restore wizard helps repair damage to your system arising from malware attacks.

3.) Symantec Norton Antivirus
Symantec's sleek antivirus application is an easy choice for home users because it has a basic, straightforward interface and is easy for the average person to use. Its customizable menus give advanced users the opportunity to fine-tune the way Norton AntiVirus works. However, the program is a little bloated and slows your system down, especially with the email scanner on.
It has the capabilities to protect against viruses, worms, bots, spyware and more. Normally you can get the AntiVirus with Antispyware and also available in Gaming edition.
