Avast! is yet another good program but there is something good about this one ITS FREE!!! no money no strings attached then you have the pro vision which runs for 39.95 honestly that is a good deal for the support you get from this program.
Avast includes anti-spyware Protection, certified by the West Coast Labs to protect against the latest spy-ware threats and anti-rootkit's here is a few perks that Avast has.
Now i have used avast for more than 1 year and i was satisfied with the out come of the product it is very good and yet another choice to get.
Here is another good antivirus program and it has one of the best firewalls next to Zone Alarm. Webroot Antivirus is a solid program. This competent defender gets my vote because it not only includes finely experienced and complex components not to mention with the purchase of thin fine program it includes a complete version of Spy Sweepr Anit-spyware software.
both of these programs have been awarded [AMI] - all major industries awards and certifications and can effectively alter there themselves to fight the new exploding threats that hit the world wide web each day.
The Internet gives endless opportunities for communication, education, commerce and entertainment; all though it also gives way opportunity's for malevolent programmers and pranksters to distribute their viruses, spyware, worms, keyloggers and more to infiltrate your computer. now when i say this i mean it if you decide to go with this program you need to have a second back-up protection like Webroot’s Antivirus with Anti-Spyware.
Putting advanced antivirus software on your computer is not a sign of paranoia, it is very intelligent. Any kind of computer that is conected to the Internet in some way will be infected with a virus that is why i am writing this artical is to tell you that you need a good antivirus program like Webroot’s Antivirus with Anti-Spyware.Webroot Antivirus Standout Features:
first on the list is ESET Nod-32 a very good antivirus indeed i use it myself Nod-32 is very good being built on the award winning "ThreatSense" engine ESET Nod-32 antivirus software locates and eliminates more trojans, worms, adware, spyware, phishing, rootkits and other Internet threats than any program available on the market so far.

It doesn't matter what your system is there can be no better protection from those harmful programs we call computer viruses. Also ESET Nod-32 was awarded "BEST ANTIVIRUS SOLUTION" IN 2006, 2007.ESET Nod-32Features:
In 2007 CNET'S choice award winner was Kaspersky now in 2008 Kespersky reigns again as #2 in the world as far as antivirus programs go.
Kaspersky antivirus 7 has several new features including a new interface and a new protection system.But not list year the competing for Editors Choice in this space was fierce with several worthy contenders looking for one goal to become the supreme authority of antivirus software.
For example BitDefender antivirus 2008 is in fact the most improved product of the year,nipping at the heels of BitDefender is Kaspersky antivirus they continue to leave their mark in the antivirus software world.All though Kaspersky has no firewall, you will have to get your own personal firewall to prevent hackers and other unwanted malicious programs. Kaspersky is just straight AV protection.
Kaspersky again shines they make an internet security suite, Kaspersky antivirus 7 feels complete as a stand alone unlike "NORTON ANTIVIRUS 2008" is lager and more well known for home use. Kaspersky disk space is small in the area of 56.36MB of disk space for the entire antivirus program. the price running for Kaspersky antivirus 2009 is 74.95 for 1 years protection that is a pretty steep price but the over all out look is still well worth it.Key Technologies:
