    The main things I look at is:

    Resource usage.
    Effectiveness (ability to detect treats).
    No annoying notifications asking for permission to allow this, or block that and no adds!

    Thanks in advance.

    It's all subjective. I use a program called Vipre Security recommended to me by a friend who's in the IT business. I think it's from a company calls GFI.

    As for the Allow/Block thing I think you'll get that with any program as it needs to "learn" your system.

    Vipre is pretty intuitive though.

    My computer guy says ESET. But like Roger said, if you ask five techs you'll get five different answers.

    Try the built in security. Power it off, then leave it off.

    Best there is.

    Actually Microsoft Essentiials is pretty adequate if you're on a PC.

    I use Norton 360 been find it is the most useful, no annoying adds runs in the background, prefer it to McAfee and a few others I have tried, plus it protect up to 3 computers. Depends what you are looking for.
