    I'm using 360 antivirus and safeguard, it's not bad.

    Default there is a testing center for this

    Some organization actually tests this. There is a summary of testing here in this pdf. Looks good.

    Software evolves and people continue to post their preferences.

    Just in case your away from home or there's no Antivirus on the computer I recommend VirusTotal online virus checker.

    It doesn't remove the virus, but you'll see right away if the file is infected. This can stop you opening or downloading it.

    Better to have an anti virus program installed though, rather than shutting the gate after the horse has bolted.

    Hello LarryWlms,

    This thread is specifically about "anti virus" programs and only one should be installed.

    Malwarebytes fights malware, as does Spybot-S&D, more than one of such software can generally be installed.

    Best regards.
