Hey all, I just wanted to ask what protection do you use for your system, and if you would recommend any and why.

Currently, I have McAfee (came with the laptop), but I don't really like it and my friend told me to use Malwarebytes. 
I'm just trying to find the best overall, and free :}

I use McCafee I have found it really works well on my systems and tolerates gaming sites. Another good one that tolerates Vizzed and other gaming sites is Kaspersky is another good one. So if you do not like McCafee I recommend giving Kaspersky a try. Some people like Norton I have not had Norton so I don't think I can say it is good or not.

I use Windows Defender. It has worked fine and I see no reason to change it.

Since I stay away from fishy downloads and sites, I don't rely on my protection all that much. It's more about peace of mind, for me. 

It has never caught any suspicious files. I'm not sure what to make of that. It's probably a good thing, I think.

I am currently using Avast Premier 2014. It's pretty good,  but I still liked Norton more. It is a bit cheaper and faster, but it doesn't have anywhere close to as many features as Norton.
It really doesn't matter much for me, as I rarely download things and can identify ma ware and other threats. Even with my skills,  I still need an antivirus program as does every computer user.

Microsoft Security essentials, and AVG free edition.
Both programs work great, I've yet to have a problem and plan to keep it that way.

I use Microsoft Security Essentials. I've never needed or wanted anything else. The other programs cost precious money that i don't even need to spend on anti-virus stuff because i've never caught any malicious files.
Wait, so IS mayonnaise an instrument?

I've been using the Avast Free Edition for awhile now and I have been extremely happy with it. I used to have a lot of problems with Microsoft Security Essentials and AVG (which completely crashed my computer one time). Both of those programs also sucked up a lot of resources from my computer. But with Avast I have been happy with how little resources it takes up. My only complaint is that sometimes it does think some of my video game files are viruses because it doesn't recognize them  .

I own Norton and AVG. I have AVG because it's free and Norton already came installed. I'm pretty careful on where I go and what I do on my computer so I wouldn't really need anything more than that.

I use malware bytes, free and fast, and it doesn't constantly beg you to donate/buy and never leave you alone.
