There are many good ones out there. Depending on your OS and features you want you may have to poke around a bit. Some of the most popular ones are Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, Norton and MacAfee.. Check out this link for some good feedback on the most popular ones.

    Go to a shop and ask for this particular electronics device and then buy it. Then what next. The heading indicated anti virus. What is the relation in between them. You have to explain your problems with more details and this helps to get good replies.

    Also to consider, depending on how much you are on-line there are some good free anti virus programs out there. It all depends on the coverage you want.

    For free anti-virus, you can try for Avast free anti-virus, as using this is working fine, while a free registration is required to working it properly. Also set auto update that can help to update its virus database.

    You, no doubt, get what you pay for! there are several good ones out there. You might want to check out Webroot and HitMan Pro. Regarding the free ones mentioned elsewhere, if you go that route, you will eventually want to pay for any commercial version that the vendor might have. You will not regret it.

    If you are using Windows OS, it has now its own Defender. You don't need to buy another provided you keep it updated. If you are using Linux OS, you don't need any.

    Buy the one that best fits your personal requirements. Or install one of the excellent free ones. There's no way we can tell which one you should use because your personal requirements are different from ours.

    I spend about 10 hours every day doing work and research on the Internet. I actively use seven e-mail accounts (and have a few others), receive RSS feeds and subscribe to a number of newsgroups through various servers, all via Thunderbird. And I haven't used any A/V nor malware program for the past few years. (Of course, I also haven't used Windows for a few years, so...)

    Before dumping Windows for Linux Mint, Windows XP was on most of my systems and I used the free edition of AVG. Never had a problem.

    But you have requirements different from mine. I'm pretty sure my requirements are significantly more stringent than yours are, so you'll have to decide for your own case. I can't guess how much more or less protection you'd need nor do I know how any given product might interfere with apps you run or operations you perform.
