The title says it all! But...

i have been using the avira premium suite 2012 until now but the license is over.I am really happy with the protection of avira but the 2013 version isnt so good as the 2012 ( I read it on the internet) so I am thinking of switching.What AV program you suggest me for full protection ?

ps: sorry fot bad English

Microsoft Security Essentials (and common sense). It's quiet, won't bother you like most AV programs, you won't even know its there until it finds a virus.

Don't be an idiot and you should have no problems with just Microsoft Security Essentials.

I prefer Vipre Internet Security from GFI Software, its neat on ram and cpu, even when scanning and it finds alot of threats.
Its also very cheap, only like $60-70 for 10 licenses, so I really recommend Vipre.

I refuse to use a security package made by the very people that provided the security holes in the first place.

Free: Avast is good. AVG is good as well.

Paid: ESET is good.

And all three of those are low overhead compared to other products.

Avast, & AVG miss a ton. Avira (free) has caught stuff the other free ones miss, no false-positives, ether. With the exception of android root kits.

Both are good, you need to pay for real time protection with Malwarebytes iirc though.
