    Just remember, not every AV will detect what the other AV might. So while someone else's might detect and protect for one thing, yours might not. So just be careful, MWB is quite good, but nothing is 100%.

    Best Anti Virus?

    Malwarebytes in my opinion & a brain (as mentioned before). Learn how to get virusses, keyloggers, RAD's of your desktop the manual way. And for my own security I completely re-install my OS every 6-12 months. I can easily back-up my most important files anyways.

    95% of the Anti Virusses are utterly useless to be honest. Every retard could make a RAT which could get through 95% of the anti virusses.

    Best Anti Virus?

    I usually stick to windows defender, but I am VERY cautious on what I download/install.
    And as Snailex said I also do clean format every few months, to get rid of useless files I don't need too.

    Windows defender paired with malwarebytes and a little common sense. Boom you're protected.

    You could also add Sandboxie onto the list. Use Windows Defender, MalwareBytes paired with Sandboxie and you'll have all the protection you need.

    Why use Sandboxie? Well it isolates your browser into a 'sandbox' which acts as a protective bubble. The program cannot escape the sandbox therefore cannot be altered to infect your computer with viruses. After you session, you simply delete the sandbox and you're scott free (virus free). I would however, still recommend you use MalwareBytes alongside Sandboxie, for optimal protection. You can use Sandboxie for basically any program that you don't necessarily trust. It's also free, if you wish to purchase it, it's relatively affordable and is worth purchasing.

    Problem is there are ways that malware can pass through sandboxie, there is literally no AV or tool that is not possible to bypass.

    Best Anti Virus?

    I always install Malware Bytes & SpyBot for Malware/Adware/Spyware

    Best anti-virus I've used is ESET, but I typically just install AVG free and web browse safely.

    No proof for this, but I also use ad-block and I think it helps prevent spyware infections.

    I use Avast, but I also use Spybot Search & Destroy. I think I should upgrade mine. Not sure which I should pick to use though.

    The best anti-virus is yourself.
    If you be careful what you download you should be safe it's that simple.

    Malwarebytes is what I use and have no problems really. You have to pay for it but tons of people upload the key to youtube so it's basically free :p
